Jon Rahm Has the Shank of the Masters Tournament

There is nothing the casual sports fan loves to see more than a professional athlete botching a routine play. Steph Curry airballing a three, Tom Brady dropping a wide open pass and Jon Rahm shanking this shot into the trees. Watch:

We love these kinds of mishaps, because it humanizes the people we idolize. To a guy like me who has never hit anything close to par, this shot made me feel just irrationally good about myself. Not that I still have a shot about the tour, but that I could have if I had tried harder and actually had talent. That’s all.

I’d be lying if I said that this isn’t what I root for every time a golfer takes a shot. Of course, Rahm took that satisfaction away from all of us by still somehow putting for par on the hole.
