Tom Kim turned heads during the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Championship on the PGA Tour.
Kim is competing in the first leg of the playoffs and opted for a striking pair of trousers for the first 18 holes at TPC Memphis.
There was nothing bold about the choice of colour. There was, however, something to be said about their length.
Perhaps Kim will defend them vehemently, given that he went low in the opening round and was amongst the early leaders.
That said, Golf

What's up with Tom Kim's pants?— Michael Remington (@Michael98824380) August 10, 2023
If that is the new men's golf fashion I'm finished. Joggers are bad enough but peddle pushers.

Tom Kim doesn’t half like a bit of attention. Not sure it’s all accidental. Super golfer though, that’s for sure.— Brian Keogh (@IrishGolfDesk) August 10, 2023
Tom Kim out here wearing capri’s looking like he’s ready for a MS dance. I see others wearing pants that look like they are ready for a Saturday morning jog. yet @PGATOUR says no to shorts?
