    “PGA Championship: Jon Rahm vents frustration at camera and mic as struggles persist”

    Unprecedented Success Meets a Wet and Windy Third Round for World No.1 Jon Rahm

    In the midst of a season filled with triumphs, it seems that Lady Luck has turned her back on Jon Rahm as he struggles to stay afloat in this year’s PGA Championship.

    Despite his recent victory in the Masters Tournament, things took an unfortunate turn for the world number one during a particularly damp and blustery third round at Oak Hill Country Club. With six-over par weighing heavily on his shoulders, any hopes of adding another major title to his growing list appeared all but lost.

    A Disappointing Display Leaves Rahm Struggling to Keep Up with Leaders

    Rahm was unable to find his stride throughout the day, struggling through shot after shot as he carded two-over-par across eighteen holes. His score left him trailing by eleven shots behind leaders Scottie Scheffler, Corey Conners and Viktor Hovland before they teed off their own third rounds later on.

    Troublesome Opening Sets Tone For Difficult Day Ahead

    The first hole quickly set an ominous tone for what would become a trying day ahead. After putting from twenty feet away in order to save par, it seemed like fortune had smiled upon Rahm when his long-range putt landed just inches from its target – only to cruelly roll around and out again.

    Frustration Boils Over As Spaniard’s Performance Worsens Throughout The Day

    Another bogey followed at the second hole, extending Rahm’s miserable start. A brief moment of respite arrived with a birdie at the fourth, but it didn’t last long as trouble reared its head again just one shot later.

    Things went from bad to worse for Rahm as he attempted to chip towards the pin, only to see his ball sail over the other side of the green. In a fit of frustration that was all too familiar for fans and spectators alike, Rahm slammed his club into nearby broadcasting equipment before missing another long-range putt by mere inches.

    A Run Of Three Straight Bogeys Adds To Spaniard’s Woes

    The next few holes saw Rahm struggle through three straight bogeys in quick succession – much to his visible chagrin. But despite this difficult run on an already trying day, things began looking up when both weather conditions and play improved.

    Rahm Faces Uphill Battle Against Leading Trio

    As previously mentioned, Scottie Scheffler leads alongside Conners and Hovland in what may be anyone’s game. Immelman predicted Scheffler would emerge victorious ahead of time due to his winning streak this season – something that has held him back until now has been poor putting performance.

    Rahm came into Oak Hill hoping to become only the fourth golfer ever (and first since Jack Nicklaus) who have won both Masters Tournament and PGA Championship titles; however given recent performances we will need a significant change if he hopes to achieve such a feat anytime soon.
