Kim ties course record with nine-under 63 in final round

Detroit – In the fourth and final round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic on Sunday, Joohyung “Tom” Kim made history.

Kim recorded an under-63 during his run on the 18-hole Detroit Golf Club, tying Cam Young (2022), Davis Thompson (2021) and Nate Lashley (2019) for the course record.

He had a chance to break the record with a 15-foot-6 putt on the 18th hole, but just missed it and had to settle for sharing the feat.

“No, (I wasn’t nervous on that putt) I felt really calm,” Kim said. “It was a great read and I don’t know how it missed to be honest. It was a perfect putt, I hit it really well. I didn’t expect it to break so much. It was just inside the hole and I’ve just come a long way from me, but it was still a great putt.”
