Jon Rahm Predicted Masters Win in a 2013 Tweet

Masters champion Jon Rahm appears to have called his shot nearly 10 full years prior to his victory on Sunday (April 9).

A tweet shared by Rahm on November 8, 2013 in which he wrote, "I am going to win the masters," tagging his then-Arizona State golf coach, Tim Mickelson, the brother and now-caddie of three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson, and sharing a photo of a Panda Express fortune cookie message that stated, "your talents will be recognized and suitably rewarded." Additionally, the tweet happened to be shared on 11:13 p.m. ET on 11/8/13, though the golfer was likely on Mountain Time when he posted the photo.

Rahm's 2013 tweet went viral after the Spaniard won the 2023 Master tournament, finishing 12-under for the tournament after shooting 3-under during the final round.

Rahm, 28, entered the day trailing Brooks Koepka (-11) by two strokes. Koepka shot 3-over to finish tied for second with Phil Mickelson at 8-under.

Rahm at Augusta National Golf Club for the first time, with his fourth-place finish at the 2018 Masters serving as his previous best finish. The Spaniard had four birdies and one bogey to finish with a total of 69 on Sunday to win his second major title, having previously won the 2021 U.S. Open.

Rahm averaged 61% for par and 26% for birdies throughout the four-day tournament. The 28-year-old moved up from No. 3 to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings following his Masters win, replacing 2022 Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, who dropped to No. 2.

Sunday's green jacket ceremony marked the first time the then-No 1 golfer put the green jacket on the player who would surpass him. Scheffler finished tied for 10th at 4-under, shooting 3-under on Sunday with five birdies and two bogeys for a total of 70 for the final round.

Former Masters champion Jordan Spieth make a final-round push with nine birdies to finish tied for fourth at 7-under.
