Jon Rahm has revealed how one PGA Tour star could not even look at him during The Masters, following an interview with Golf Channel Latin America. 

LIV Golf superstar Rahm, 29, finished a disappointing T45 on 9-over par in his title defence at Augusta National on Sunday. 

He finished 20 shots behind runaway World No.1 and now two-time Masters champion Scottie Scheffler

As the former winner, Rahm had to present Scheffler with the green jacket. 

Rahm said he found that hard to do.

Rahm made the shock decision to switch from the PGA Tour to the Saudi-bankrolled LIV Golf League in a reported $600m five-year-deal at the end of 2023. 

That call has not sat well with a number of players on the PGA Tour, in particular one player as Rahm discussed in an interview with Hugo Costa of Golf Channel Latin America

When pressed on whether any PGA Tour players came over to see him on the range or in the locker room, Rahm said: 

"Some did. I expected it.

"Then there was someone else who I expected to be a little tougher... and one of them hugged me.

"I think that, among all the relationships I have, it has been everything that I expected. My friends are still my friends.

"Then someone, with whom I was very cordial and had a positive relationship, has not even looked at me.

"If someone changes their opinion of me, it is more their problem than mine. I am not worried.

"I knew it was going to happen. I didn't know who."

So which PGA Tour star has got beef with Rahm exactly?

Well, according to Golf Channel's Costa, it's either Patrick Cantlay or Max Homa.

Cantlay, one of the PGA Tour player directors for 2024, finished T22 at The Masters, while Homa finished a very respectable T3. 

Costa writes: 

"Important players with whom Jon Rahm had a good relationship, such as Patrick Cantlay or Max Homa, could have had gestures of contempt towards the Spaniard in this Masters."

Rahm will be looking to get his game back in shape at LIV Golf Adelaide at the end of the month.

He will then line up at LIV Golf Singapore before turning his attention to the season's second major at the US PGA Championship at Valhalla from 16-19 May. 

What have you made of Rahm's game since joining LIV Golf? Does he look a different player these days, especially in relation to runaway World No.1 and two-time Masters champion Scottie Scheffler? Share your thoughts and comments over on the GolfMagic social media channels.
