Spaniard Rahm was spotted in the crowd at Wimbledon earlier this month wearing a flashy suit coupled with a black shirt with stars and a tie in brilliant blue.
Pieters was quick to notice his rivals’ outfit and took to Twitter to poke fun at his rival by asking various fashion designer to step in and give him some fashion advice.
And after being asked for his thoughts on Pieters’ Tweet during this year’s Open, it appears as though Rahm has not taken the joke too well.
“No, I haven’t seen him this week,” he said when asked if he had seen Pieters in the build-up to action at Portrush.
“I saw the Tweet. I haven’t seen him, no. And I’m not necessarily going to look for him after
something like that.”
Rahm was pressed further about his Wimbledon attire and asked if it was the sort of thing he would wear on an everyday basis.
“I mean, I like to stay up with modern fashions,” he replied.
“I can always say that wasn’t my first choice of shirt to wear.
“The tie was; the shirt wasn’t. Still, you’ve got to wear it with confidence, that’s all I can say.”
Despite the fact he was gearing up of for a Major tournament, the questions about his fashion sense kept coming.
Asked if it was perhaps the only shirt he had available – despite being worth a reported £2million – Rahm say other options were still with his dry cleaners.
“Yeah, for reasons — for just it didn’t come, the shirt I wanted to wear didn’t come from the dry cleaners in time,” he added.
“But still, it’s one of the shirts I have that I’ve worn before.
“It’s not meant to be worn with a suit. I’d rather not go to a Royal box with a starred shirt.
“But it’s what I had. I got compliments in the Royal box. As far as I’m concerned it was a good day.”
