The Superhero's Hero

Tom Holland’s face watching Jon Rahm’s opening tee shot at the BMW PGA Championship pro-am pretty much says it all

September 13, 2023

Have you ever wondered if superheroes have heroes? Have you ever laid awake at night pondering who Spider-Man looks up to while web-slingin’ around the Big Apple? Well, now we have our answer:

It’s Jon Rahm.

That’s the (very relatable) look Tom Holland—best known for his role as Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe—had on his face watching Jon Rahm smoke his opening tee shot at the BMW PGA Championship pro-am on Wednesday. Holland is the star of a multi-billion-dollar film franchise. He plays one of the most iconic and popular characters of all time. He dates Zendaya. The fact he could barely scrape his jaw off the grass watching Rahm swing a golf club says pretty much everything you need to know about how good Jon Rahm is at swinging a golf club.

It wasn’t all oohs and ahhs, however. The pair also shared nice chat about Rahm’s Masters victory back in April, with Rahm admitting he was holding back tears walking up the 18th fairway think of countryman Seve Ballesteros.

Is there a bromance blooming at the Wentworth Club this week? We’ll have to wait and see, but Spidey could always use a new sidekick. We hope you’re not afraid of heights, Rahmbo ...
