AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Like
all many some(?) rivalries, it started with a misspelled name. Nick Faldo -- in trying to pay a compliment to Jon Rahm on Twitter last week -- mistakenly added an "h" to the Spaniard's first name. And Rahm called the CBS analyst out.
From there, the two went back-and-forth:
Before Faldo came up with the idea to settle things in proper fashion with a duel. At the Masters Par 3 Contest.
And the young upstart was quick to accept the challenge.
So we waited for this showdown between a six-time major champ and a 22-year-old seemingly destined for multiple majors of his own. Unfortunately, Wednesday's weather didn't cooperate.
Until next year, guys. Although, Rahm has a pretty late tee time on Thursday. . .
