Jon Rahm took the win at the 2023 Masters Tournament in comfortable fashion, and there were tons of reactions to Rahm taking his second career major victory and first Masters.
Rahm finished 12 under on the entire weekend, going three under in the final round on Sunday. He finished four strokes ahead of Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson, who tied for second. Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson were part of what drove intrigue for the Masters Tournament this year, as LIV Tour golfers were allowed to participate in the event.
Let's get to some of the reactions to Jon Rahm's win.
“Congratulations Jon Rahm on winning the Masters ⛳️ Thoroughly deserved and a worthy Champion” wrote @Craigtharden.
“Congratulations to Jon Rahm From the Basque Region of Spain On Winning the 2023 Masters. Great to See His Young Children & Wife Celebrate With Him” wrote @missionparsons.
“Jon Rahm should have Panda Express cater his Champions dinner next year. #themasters” wrote @t_parker9. There was some context provided to the joke with an old tweet from Rahm.
