NFL player nearly ruins Jon Rahm's victory at Masters: "Don't ever do that again"

Jon Rahm sealed a come-from-behind victory Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club to lift the 2023 Masters trophy, but NFL tight end Zach Ertz nearly ruined the huge win with a text message sure to mess with the mind of any athlete.

Rahm, 28, revealed during his championship speech that Ertz was likely at fault for him opening the tournament with a double bogey.

"He sent me a text, and I'm gonna paraphrase, that said 'That first green is looking like a walk in the park right now' 10 minutes before I four-putted to start the tournament," Rahm said to laughter in his victory speech. "So thank you Zach. Don't ever do that again, please."

The first hole Rahm played on Thursday ended with the Spaniard having to putt four times before finally sinking the ball.

Ertz, 32, took to Twitter to respond to Rahm, saying he apologizes for nothing and the he should expect similar texts from now on ahead of every major tournament.

JJ Watt joins the chat

Retired NFL defensive end JJ Watt pulled out the receipts of their group chat to show how the pair of football players are ruthless with Rahm.

Watt, 34, also shared the direct message with just him and Ertz, where he jokes that Rahm is playing like them two.

Ertz, an Arizona Cardinals tight end, was Watt's teammate before he retired, but it's unclear how Rahm ended up in a group chat with them both.

Rahm overcame the early four-putt and was fortunate that LIV Golf member Brooks Koepka choked down the final stretch of the tournament.
