Swear words aside, world No. 1 Jon Rahm doesn't back off on criticism of PGA Tour setup last week .
SAN DIEGO – Jon Rahm stood his ground. Last week en route to finishing in a tie for 14th in the American Express, the world No. 1 was caught on video voicing his extreme displeasure with the course setup in what is annually a birdie-fest in the Palm Sp rings area, one he captured in 2018. As he walked from a green to a tee at the Nicklaus Course at PGA West during the second round, Rahm, who wears his emotions on his golf sleeve and has improved his ability to reign in his temperament that has gotten the better of himself a few times over the years, went off with an eight-word out burst with two expletives that made the video go viral.
