Jon Rahm missed from 11 inches but what about these shockers?!

Jon Rahm hit the headlines for the wrong reasons when he missed a putt from 11 inches at the 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational. 

Perhaps we should give the World No.1 the benefit of the doubt as he tried to actually stop his stroke. He didn't commit and then miss. 

His hands were sweaty, he later confessed, adding: "I wish I could give you all of the excuses in the world". 

There is no doubt about it. It was an absolute shocker of a moment from the Spaniard whose putting woes have been all too evident lately.

Over the years, we have seen some incredible misses that even after you watch them you have to scratch those peepers. 

GolfMagic decided to look at three of the worst in the history of the game.
