Green Jacket Life
Jon Rahm reveals Augusta National's super strict rules for wearing the green jacket
Most golf fans are well aware that the only person allowed to wear Augusta National's green jacket away from the club is the reigning Masters champ. But as Jon Rahm, the current man holding down that lofty spot, revealed on Wednesday, the rules don't end there when it comes to this coveted garment.
Appearing on this week's Subpar podcast, Rahm detailed some of the restrictions regarding wearing the green jacket off property.
"I don't know all the rules. There's a dress code that comes with it," Rahm said. "It's complicated. The jacket can't have a public appearance without them knowing. They have to give approval for everything."

"I can't be photographed having alcohol with the jacket," Rahm said. "It just goes on and on and on." Here's the clip from Rahm's conversation with hosts Colt Knost and Drew Stoltz:
