Jon Rahm has copied Tiger Woods by screaming "f***" live on television after missing an easy putt during the first round of the Masters.
The world No2 let his emotions get the better of him after he failed to putt for par on the 11th hole at Augusta National during Thursday's opening round. Rahm appeared visibly frustrated as he watched his ball miss the hole on the par four 11th before screaming "f***" as he went to steady himself for his next shot.
His expletives came after Tiger Woods had forced Sky Sports to apologise after shouting "f*** off" during his first round.
US Open champion Rahm went on to end his opening round on a two over par 74 and entered the clubhouse tied 41st overall ahead of day two of this year's tournament. Rahm's previous best finish at the masters was fourth place in 2018 and he has finished in the top 10 at Augusta in each of the last four years.
The Spaniard was not the only golfer to be heard swearing on live television during Thursday's opening round, though, with five-time Masters champion Woods also getting frustrated on the green. Woods has made a dramatic return to golf this week, having been involved in a horrific car accident in February 2021, which left him with multiple leg injuries.

Having bogeyed the par five eighth, Woods got into further trouble on the ninth and was heard yelling "f*** off" before saving par. His expletives forced Sky Sports to apologise to their viewers during their broadcast, with Woods' outburst occurring live on television.
Woods was able to recover from his blip at eight and nine to finish the round with a one under 71 and was tied 12th overall heading into day two of the tournament. The clubhouse leader after the opening round was South Korea's Im Sung-jae, who played a stunning five under par round on Thursday.
