Golfers around the world were able to compare themselves exactly to World No.1 Jon Rahm on Thursday as the Spaniard stubbed an 11-inch putt on the par-3 7th at famed Bay Hill in round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Rahm sent his birdie putt narrowly past the cup and then trudged over to his ball, being careful to not step on the lines of Sam Burns and Sergio Garcia.
He stepped in with one foot in front of the other, and then stubbed his ball an inch in front of him.
Rahm, who is using a new Odyssey putter this week, tapped in for a bogey-four taking him back to 2-over par for the round and way off the pace currently set by Rory McIlroy on 7-under par.
