Masters: Jon Rahm blames Super Bowl winner Zach Ertz for a woeful four-shot start

Date:

Jon Rahm jokes Super Bowl winner Zack Ertz Jenks before the game kicks off with a scare four in Augusta with text that reads “First green look walks the park” — but the NFL star isn’t sorry after the Masters win!

Masters champion John Rahm has shed light on the text message he received before his terrible start to the tournament where he blamed NFL star Zach Ertz for his four-shooter.

The Spaniard was able to highlight the situation by claiming the green jacket for the first time in a four-shot victory over Augusta National on Sunday.

Ram got off to a woeful start in his first major of the year as he opened with a four-shot lead.

In his speech after receiving the famous green jacket, the 28-year-old recalled a message he received before starting play on day one.

For those people who believe in the sex of other gamers or people or whatever, Thursday morning as I was riding in my golf cart to get to this green. Ten minutes before game time, I saw a text from a good friend of mine, “The two-time major winner is starting now.

Ertz said he wasn't sorry about the text and joked about sending similar messages

Ertz said he wasn’t sorry about the text and joked about sending similar messages “moving on.”

“I’m going to name him because he’s Super Bowl winner Zack Ertz — he sent the text: ‘First green looks like a walk in the park’ 10 minutes before the tournament kicks off four minutes.”

Ram laughed as did those present at his coronation on Sunday.

Ram added, “So thank you Zack, don’t do that again please.

Ertz, who won Super Bowl LII with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018, watched the story and responded on Twitter.

Responding to a clip from Ram’s speech, Ertz wrote: ‘I apologize for absolutely nothing!

You can expect these scripts every major going forward my friend!

‘Congratulations!’

Another friend of Rahm’s and recently retired NFL star JJ Watt shared screenshots of messages in their group chat as he and Ertz joked about the golfer’s start to the 2023 Masters tournament.

Along with pictures of the messages, Watt wrote: “Can confirm. I guess that means you deserve a green jacket @ZERTZ_86.

Ertz sent: ‘Let’s have a day, John!! Get started quickly!! While Watt added: Let’s go John!!! Suppose you play with Zack and me, you will set the course record.

Ertz then replied, “The first green hole is like a walk in the park.”

In a conversation just between Ertz and Watt, the former said: “Four strikes to start the round…not ideal.

Watt replied: Awful. I said pretend you’re playing with us, not playing like us.

Ram put the terrible beginning behind him to usurp Brooks Koepka and claim the Major in Georgia.

He became the first European Masters champion in six years with a score of 12-under par.

Ram dedicated his Masters win to Spanish legend Seve Ballesteros on his 66th birthday.
