WATCH: Jon Rahm tosses sand rake, throws club in epic U.S. Open meltdown
Rahm carded a 1-over on day two of The Open and missed the cut.
Entering round one of the U.S. Open on Thursday, rising golf starof winning the tournament. Thirty-six holes and 149 strokes later, however, Rahm is headed home, missing the cut after an up-and-down two days in Erin, Wisconsin.
Rahm shot a respectable 1-over par on Friday but carded three back-breaking bogeys that sealed his fate, and he was not happy about the writing on the wall. In the process of cooking up one of those bogeys on the par-5 14th, Rahm completely lost his cool, throwing and kicking his club after hitting into the thick fescue of Erin Hills. He also attempted to throw a bunker rake but failed, and it was all caught on camera.

ESPN's Kevin Valkenburg was there and tweeted out the entire sequence in all its glory.
Fortunately for Rahm, he has plenty of down time to reflect on what went wrong this week after missing the cut.
