Spanish golf star Rahm needs to keep his cool
RISING Spanish star Jon Rahm admits he was “deeply embarrassed” by his behaviour during the US Open and concedes he needs to keep his emotions in check in future.
Since turning professional less than a year ago, Rahm has claimed his first PGA Tour title and racked up a string of impressive performances, with his runners- up finish in the Dean and Deluca Invitational in May propelling him into the world’s top 10 for the first time.
However, the 22- year- old made headlines for the wrong reasons on his way to missing the cut in the US Open last month, throwing and kicking clubs in a shocking display.
He also hurled a bunker rake and punched a tee marker in a petulant outburst days at the Erin Hills course.
“I do like to feel my emotions,” Rahm said ahead of the Irish Open at Portstewart, where he competed in the 2014 Amateur Championship.
