There’s a very good argument to be made that Spaniard Jon Rahm is the best player in the world. Of course, he is ranked as the best player in the world according to the Official World Golf Rankings, but just watching him gives the impression that he’s really, really good.
That was on display at the Masters last month. After Jon Rahm went out and opened the tournament with an embarrassing four-putt during the first round of the tournament. But, he dominated the tournament the rest of the way and won the Masters.
Jon Rahm to start the day

He went into this week’s PGA Championships with high hopes. But, a first-round 76 played him out of contention, more or less. His second round was better, as he shot a two-under 68, good enough to make the cut at +4. But, that didn’t stop him from getting very frustrated.
The par-3 11th hole at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, NY is playing at an incredible 248 yards. Well, Jon Rahm didn’t think it was incredible. Make sure you turn your sound on.
Jon Rahm not impressed with the 11th hole and how it was set up today.
Long par three, tucked pin.

Maybe Jon Rahm could have just hit a better golf shot? Scottie Scheffler leads the tournament at -5.
