Watch Jon Rahm’s Atrocious Display Of Putting From Just 15 Feet Out
Jon Rahm is #2 on the Official World Golf Ranking list and has become a PGA Tour force to be reckoned with over the past couple years.
One strength of Rahm’s game is his putting, right now he’s ranked 35th in strokes-gained putting, 6th in overall putting average, 6th in putts per round, 25th in putting from 15-20 feet, and 3rd in one-putt percentage. However, Rahm had some real struggles with a 15-foot putt from the back of Club de Golf Chapultepec’s 1st green on Saturday at the WGC-Mexico Championship.
Rahm needed four tries to finally finish the first hole of his Saturday round. Take a look at this disaster:
Look familiar? Because I had flashbacks to the 1996 Waterbury Open as I watched Rahm struggle to tap it in…
“Yeah, it is about time. I mean, I just couldn’t get the ball in the hole. I wanted to but I just couldn’t do it.” – Happy Gilmore … and Jon Rahm, probably.
But have to give respect for a quick bounce-back by Rahm. The next hole, he hit one of the best drives I’ve ever seen and executed a solid two-putt birdie.
