Although the effort was poor, he did so in a professional manner.
In Round 1 of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, world No. 1 Jon Rahm missed a 10-inch putt on the par-3 seventh hole. The small bounce was enough to make his 310-yard drive on the previous hole count. But he didn’t lose his calm.
Rahm cozied up his birdie attempt for what appeared to be a gimme par after hitting the back fringe off the tee at No. 7. It wasn’t meant to be. However, it was Rahm’s third bogey of the day (compared to one birdie). At the moment, he was 2 over par, nine shots behind leader Rory McIlroy.
