SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA (AP) – Jon Rahm, a proud Arizona State alum, has worn a No. 42 Pat Tillman jersey on the 16th hole of the WM Phoenix Open a few times in the past.
In 2015, he did so as an ASU student, competing as an amateur in the event. In 2018, he did it once more.

When asked if he wanted to do it again this week on Thursday, he responded no, then changed his answer to “probably not.”
He commented after his opening-round 4-under 67, “Probably not going to come out in a long time.” “It’s not for a lack of excitement or willingness, but rather for sponsor disagreement.” Travis Mathew, last I looked, didn’t create football shirts, did he? So I can’t really endorse anyone else.”
