Many people grow up with idolatry Tiger Woods. As one of the greatest golfers of all time, he certainly has an impact on everyone; players and fans alike. Just as Jon Rahm also idolized Woods growing up.

But even after meeting him and reading Woods’ book about his Masters win, Rahm found it difficult to take advice from his worthy opponent. “Maybe you need to ask Justin Thomas.” Rahm told golf.com on Tuesday. “There’s only one man in this field who listens to Tiger’s advice because I’ve asked before and gotten nothing.”

‘I learned the lesson the hard way’: Jon Rahm on not getting advice from Tiger Woods

Jon Rahm talks about the lesson he learned the hard way. First time during a practice session at the 2017 Tour Championships, he asked Tiger for some tips on laying out Bermuda grass greens. “He turned around and said, ‘It’s all about the feeling,’ and just kept going.” Rahm remembered. Disappointed, Rahm walked away with a sarcastic reply.

The second time he experienced this was during his first Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. “You just have to be superficial” was the only advice Woods gave him. “Meanwhile I turn around and JT is with him and he’s getting a whole dissertation on what to do.”

Woods seems to have a soft spot for JT and describes him as a member of the family. He also says he won’t openly advise his competitors because he just doesn’t want to give them an advantage.
