Four stanzas to Jon Rahm’s victory at the Masters hinted that everything had gone his way during the weekend.
But if a Super Bowl victory in the tight end position hadn’t contributed, the gap between the Spaniard and his toughest competitors, Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson of the LIV Golf Tour, may have been even wider.
Although Rahm was the embodiment of the necessity to claim his second career major at Augusta National and his first green jacket on Sunday’s final round, Rahm’s final title match could not have begun any worse.
Rahm saw some unusual struggles during his opening round on the first hole after making four putts for a double-bogey on the well-kept green on the first hole.
