And he finally boiled over after another double-bogey on the next made it SIX dropped shots in just three holes, to leave his dreams of a first Major in tatters.

After tugging a simple wedge approach wide of the green, a furious Rahm launched his club in a rage, before collecting it again and slamming it back into his bag.

It is not the first time the man who began the second round as the bookies’ joint favourite with Rory McIlroy, has lost the plot.

In the 2017 US Open, he suffered a meltdown which went down as one of golf’s great outbursts.

On his way to missing the cut at Erin Hills, he slammed his wedge into the ground, drop kicked it, threw his ball and then punched a sign.

If that was not bad enough, the day before he had also chucked a bunker rake and launched a seven iron into the air like a javelin.

That prompted Rahm, now the world No 5, to bring in former bomb disposal expert Joseba del Carmen as his mental coach after admitting he needed to calm down.

Unfortunately del Carmen settled him down so much that he missed the cut again in last month’s US Open at Shinnecock Hills after rounds of 78 and 77.

That prompted Rahm, 23, to admit he had gone too far the other way.

There was no danger of him saying it yesterday, as he plummeted from three under to three over in the blink of an eye.

Back to the drawing board with that mind guru, eh Jon?
