Jon Rahm walked into Augusta and won The Masters for the first time in his golfing career.

It’s certainly a big moment, but he definitely could have won by a more comfortable margin.

On the first green on day one of the tournament, Jon Rahm struggled after taking four putts to sink the ball in the hole.

Many thought the worst for Rahm at that point, while many were also hopeful he was just getting bad golf out of the way.

It turned out to be the latter and now this year’s winner of the Masters blames Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz for his struggles on that hole.

Here he is explaining why he blames Ertz.

Apparently, Jon Rahm is good friends with Ertz and JJ Watt, as the three of them have a group chat together. In fact, Watt shares and confirms the text exchange.

And of course, Zach Ertz himself responded to Rahm blaming him for the poor start on the first hole.

At the end of the day, Jon Rahm was able to get back on track and win The Masters. It’s an impressive feat, as he joins the green jacket club.

Hopefully, Ertz doesn’t jinx Rahm at his next tournament. Or, who knows, maybe that text turned out to be a good luck charm.
