• Rahm sees funny side in poor shot

    Jon Rahm

    World No 2 Jon Rahm has acknowledged that he might be a contender for worst shot of the week after a poor tee-shot on the 6th hole of the Muirfield Village Golf Club.

    The Spaniard opened with a round of even-par 72 at the Workday Charity Open in Ohio on Thursday in the fifth PGA Tour event since its resumption last month.

    Rahm, who can move to the summit of the world golf rankings should he win this weekend, saw the funny side of his poor tee-shot on the par four when the ball travelled way right.

    It left him with a damaging double-bogey but fortunately he was able to joke about it on Twitter afterwards.

    ‘Give me a bright vest and red paddles and I can direct air traffic,’ he said in response to a tweet picturing on the tee box, indicating how far right the ball had travelled.
