Jon Rahm has certainly been getting better at keeping his composure on the golf course in recent months, however, the new Callaway staff player let himself down on day three at the PGA Tour's Tournament of Champions at Kapalua.
Rahm, 26, was seen getting very angry after missing a six-foot putt for birdie on the 15th hole. After missing his putt to the right of the hole, Rahm banged his putter onto the ground, clearly bothered by "metal spike marks" or so he thought at least. WATCH the incident below (you'll need to turn the sound up to hear his rant in full):

Rahm's rant comes during a week where the World No.2 confirmed a new deal to play Callaway clubs and wear TravisMathew apparel, along with Cuator golf shoes. The five-time PGA Tour winner was previously with TaylorMade and adidas Golf.
The Spaniard ended up carding a 4-under 69 on day three to move to 14-under par alongside World No.1 Dustin Johnson, but seven strokes off the pace heading into the final round.
Here's a look at what golf fans have been tweeting after witnessing Rahm's tirade on the green:
"So this is Callaway Golf's new addition! I don't know which is more gross, his mouth or his shirt."
"Yeah of course he missed that putt because of metal spikes on the green!"
"Tapped down whatever was two inches outside the ball path."
"Rahm throwing his toys out the pram... SHOCK!"
"That's my least favorite move in golf. The "point to the fictional crater that my ball rolled through that clearly appeared after I picked up my marker" gambit. Degree of douche-baggery required to execute is out of reach for most touring pros. Obviously."
