Spanish golfer Jon Rahm was seen fuming in anger as he missed a crucial putt shot on the 10th hole. Soon after his miss, the Spanish golfer dropped an f-word during the 2023 Open Championships at Royal Liverpool. The incident quickly went viral on social media and most fans of the sport took it in good humor and appreciated the honest frustration displayed by the golfer. However, in his place, the announcer had to apologize after the word was broadcasted to the audience.
Rahm vented his frustrations with Thursday’s opening round after he carded a three-over-par round of 74. His temper was also tested after he was faced with a barrage of photographers and camera crew inside the ropes. The world number 3 shouted “F***” and the announcer had to apologize for it after.
Rahm expresses anger with camera cr ew
Speaking about the invasive amount of photographers and camera staff, the Spaniard said, “I'm trying to walk and there's way too many people in my way and I can't go on my pace because they're in my way. Then I'm walking off 18 and trying to deal with the unlucky moment on 18, and there's somebody with a boom light on my ass keeping up with Rory's pace. I can't go at my own pace. That's kind of the disregard that I existed, that's all.”
This is the third consecutive major during which Rahm has had issues with camera crews, and he let the team know it in an expletive-laden rant, according to GolfWeek. Though it is not known exactly what was said, it is reported that Rahm went off on the crew for obstructing his way.
Rahm finished his round after picking up a bogey six at the 18th, which leaves him at two-over for the tournament. He is twelve shots behind Open Championship leader Brian Harman who finished the first two rounds at ten-under par.
