ASU alum Jon Rahm wears Pat Tillman jersey at WM Phoenix Open

Feb 2, 2018, 8:41 PM | Updated: 9:34 pm

Arizona State University alum and golfer Jon Rahm had a touching tribute planned for the infamous 16th hole at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

In the tee box, Rahm had on a Sun Devils Pat Tillman jersey, and in a usually unorthodox move for a golfer, urged the crowd to make some noise as he teed off.

He received a loud ovation connecting with the ball and also for the result of his drive. He would par the hole for the second straight day.

Rahm honored another Arizona legend at the hole earlier in the week.

At 7-under, Rahm is tied for eighth after shooting a 67 on Thursday and a 68 on Friday.
