Jon Rahm is one of the most exciting young golfers in the game right now and is having himself quite a year.
During the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow this weekend, Rahm came up short on the leaderboard, but still showed off his skill and versatility with one of the best shots of the tournament.
After an errant shot on the 18th, Rahm found himself up against a hazard on the notorious “Green Mile” as it is called at Quail Hollow.
At that point, Rahm needed to figure out how he was going to attack the ball, and absolutely none of his options were good. He could get into the water, leaving him both wet and attempting to hit a ball that was roughly three feet above his feet. He could also pitch out and basically concede any shot at advancing his ball in favour of getting in better position.
Instead, Rahm went with option three: flipping his club around, turning his back to the flag, taking a glance over his shoulder and sending a one-handed chip about 40 yards right at his desired target.
While Rahm would bogey the hole and go on to finish the tournament at 7-over, it’s safe to say he had one of the most impressive shots of the week.
