Jon Rahm earned a very-well deserved second major title and his first ever Green Jacket last weekend when he outlasted the rest of the field at Augusta to win The Masters.
Unfortunately for Rahm and the entire golf community, there was someone else who was grabbing all the headlines following this year’s first major tournament.
Anyone who tuned in to the watch the final round of The Masters may have noticed that it took the final group awfully long to complete their 18 holes. But that wasn’t the fault of Rahm and Brooks Koepka. Rather, it was all because of the group ahead of them, which included renowned slowpoke, Patrick Cantlay.
Following the round, Koepka pointed out that Rahm was able to take several washroom breaks because the two of them were waiting so long for Cantlay and Victor Hovland in front of them. Cantlay responded by claiming that he was also the one doing the waiting — seemingly implying that the group in front of him was also slow.
No one was buying Cantlay’s excuse. And, shortly after, a video of the 31-year-old pro surfaced online, showing him taking a whopping 45 seconds to finally hit his drive.
I’m probably not the only one who’s used to seeing people completely whiff on their shot after standing over the ball for that long. It’s actually pretty amazing that Patrick was able to make solid contact on that swing.
If you found watching this video of Cantlay to be incredibly excruciating, you’re not the only one. Social media sounded off on the former no. 3 ranked golfer over his ridiculously slow play:
