"It's what p****s me off”: Jon Rahm fumes after first round struggles

Jon Rahm Masters First Round

The world No.2 was quick to let the rest of us know he was not a happy man, after an opening 74 left him seven shots off the early Masters pace.

Jon Rahm was the pre-tournament favourite at the Masters, but what he called bad luck dented his quest for a Green Jacket. When the feisty Spaniard was asked if he could take reporters through his round, Rahm was clearly agitated.

“That’s the most hated question on the planet. I’m not happy," he said.

“I played great golf and got four mudballs. What am I going to do about that? It’s what it is, it’s bad luck and it’s what p****s me off. That’s all I can say.”

One of Rahm’s “mudballs” came at the par-four 11th, where, after a perfect drive, his approach found the 12th tee. He would go on to make a bogey after missing a short par attempt. At the reachable par-five 13th, Rahm's tee shot found Rae's Creek, and he would go on to make another bogey.

Rahm will look to improve on his first round effort, when he gets his second round underway at 3:23pm (UK time) alongside Patrick Cantlay and Will Zalatoris.
