Sure, young Justin Thomas won this past weekends with an 8-under par, but really anyone can shoot that well when they’re looking at the greens.
Try hitting the green when you have your back facing it.
Because that is precisely what golfer Jon Rahm did yesterday while playing the par-4 18th hole during the final round.
Rahm's ball ended up right next to the creek that runs down the left side of the fairway and instead of attempting to hit the ball like normal, which would have involved a very awkward stance, he elected to hit it using only his right hand with his back towards the hole.
And he nestled it right up on the green.
Hey, maybe I should be playing with my back to the green.
I probably wouldn’t get these results, but at least I wouldn’t have to watch.
