In a statement released by Rahm’s team, the Spaniard said he was “disappointed to have to withdraw from such an important event” but added that he “was feeling unwell and had to make the decision to withdraw in order to recover.”
But while Rahm was out of the tournament, his Twitter account was busy with a tweet that sparked outrage among some golf fans.
The tweet, which was subsequently deleted, read: “Golfers who don’t take their turn on the green should be removed from the game. #RahmOut”
The tweet was interpreted by many as an attempt by Rahm to manipulate public opinion and maliciously attack golfers who may not hit as well as him. It was quickly condemned by fans, with some saying it was an act of hate speech.
In response, Rahm’s team released a statement apologizing for the tweet and claiming that it was sent without the knowledge or approval of Rahm or his team. The statement also said that the tweet had been deleted and that Rahm and his team “deeply regret” the incident.
The controversy has sparked a debate over the use of social media by professional athletes, with some arguing that athletes should be more mindful of the power of their words and the potential consequences of their actions. It has also highlighted the need to be aware of potentially offensive language and to think twice before using it.
