Furious Jon Rahm yells ‘f***’ after missing a crucial putt during play at The Open… after photographers left the Spaniard outraged during poor first round
Jon Rahm was caught on camera cursing after missing a crucial putt during The Open on Friday afternoon.
Rahm has painted an angry figure during the first proceedings at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club after taking issue with photographers and cameramen at the event.
And the Masters champion’s mood has hardly changed after he was seen in a rage after missing a putt on the 10th hole on Friday.
The microphones picked up Rahm’s reaction to the missed shot, to which he yelled: ‘F***!’. The video later appeared on Twitter.
The missed shot meant Rahm was unable to make par for the hole and left him further adrift of tournament favourites.
Spaniard Jon Rahm let his frustration be known after missing a crucial putt on the 10th hole
Rahm has painted a frustrated figure throughout the competition after recently taking aim at photographers and videographers.
Commenters were quick to apologize for the foul-mouthed comment that was caught on camera.
The incident took Rahm’s week from bad to worse after the Spaniard’s frustrations with photographers boiled over during the first round.
The Masters champion lashed out after his 74 opener, saying there were too many members of the media following his marquee grouping with Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose from inside the ropes.
He said: ‘I’m trying to walk and there are too many people in my way and I can’t go at my pace because they’re in my way.
“Then I’ll walk out of 18 trying to deal with that unfortunate moment… there’s someone with a boom mic up my butt keeping up with Rory… that’s the contempt that I even existed.”
While the boom incident is understood to have involved a Netflix crew, organizers sent a reminder to Hoylake photographers and videographers Friday about guidelines for where they should be located.
Rahm, whose temper is known to heat up on the course, previously spoke to camera crews at the US PGA Championship in May.
