From its inception, “Golf, But Louder” has been one of LIV’s mantras. Jon Rahm, the Saudi-backed league’s newest mega acquisition, knew this when he signed on. In the final round at LIV Vegas, however, the reigning Masters champion wanted everybody to quiet the hell down.
Unfortunately, silence is not golden on the LIV Tour, which allows music to blare in the background throughout competition. The party atmosphere was very much alive for the final round at Las Vegas Country Club, where Rahm was firmly in the mix with just seven holes remaining.
At the par-3 12th Rahm sat just two shots off the lead, and things were getting tense. Despite numerous pleas from his caddie Adam Hayes to get fans to quiet down, they would not listen (mind you, there is music blasting). Eventually Rahm himself had to step in, saying, “Make sure your phones are on silent.” However you feel about all the LIV–PGA Tour drama, we can all admit Rahm begging for quiet when there’s no quiet to be had is a hilarious image.
Shoutout to our friend Joe Idone for picking this one up:

Pretty futile effort here. Reminds us of the volunteers who have to hold up the “QUIET PLEASE” signs on the 16th hole at the WM Phoenix Open this week. It ain’t happening, mate.
Rahm went on to make par on the 12th, but two bogeys on his final four holes saw him drop into eighth place, four shots behind winner Dustin Johnson.
