Golf fans all saying same thing as Jon Rahm did this after Tyrrell Hatton putt

Jon Rahm gave a fist pump after watching Tyrrell Hatton drain his eight-foot birdie putt on the 18th green at the BMW PGA Championship, and it's left golf fans saying the same thing ahead of the Ryder Cup.

Rahm had just narrowly missed his eagle putt that would have levelled him up with Ryan Fox, who was waiting back down on the 18th fairway. 

That left the stage set for Hatton, who needed to convert his birdie attempt to join Fox on 17-under par.

Hatton converted for a round of 66 and gave his own fist pump to the crowd, while Rahm, who shot 68 to finish solo fourth, also joined in the celebrations. 

Although Fox went on to birdie the last to deny Hatton his second BMW PGA Championship following a superb up and down from inside of 100 yards on the 18th, golf fans were left in no doubt that Rahm and Hatton will be partnering up a lot at the Ryder Cup in two weeks' time in Rome.


Get involved in our latest poll: 

"Ryder Cup Team Europe as one, Rahm cheering Hatton's putt in," commented one golf fan. "Not sure I've ever seen anything like that before in a strokeplay tournament."

Another wrote: "You love to see this, Rahm fist pumping after Hatton's birdie putt on 18. No doubt they're playing together a lot at the Ryder Cup."

"Brilliant reaction from Rahm, classy touch," tweeted a European golf fan. 

One golf fan wrote: "These two are brilliant together. Big fan of Rahm dropping the fist pump when Hatton rolled his putt in too."

"See you in Rome partner," commented one account.

"This partnership is going to be unreal at the Ryder Cup," wrote one golfer.

One European Ryder Cup fan tweeted: "Donald would be mad not to stick these two together at the Ryder Cup, going to be blockbuster stuff!"

"Rahm and Hatton will be deadly at a Ryder Cup, cannot wait for this in two weeks," tweeted another. 

Hatton and Rahm played together three times at the BMW PGA last week. 

The first two days were intentional as European Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald specifically asked for certain three-balls on the West Course for Thursday and Friday.

Nicolai Hojgaard joined up with Rahm and Hatton for the first two rounds, but the Danish wildcard finished T64 on level par. 

That was the worst finish of all 12 European Ryder Cup players in the field. 

Rahm and Hatton then played alongside England's Nathan Kimsey in the final round.

Kimsey slumped to a 75 to finish in T28 on 8-under par.
