A couple of golf’s biggest names were taking in the sights and sounds of other pro sports Friday night.
Jon Rahm was enjoying some NBA playoff basketball, while Danielle Kang visited a Major League Baseball game.
Rahm, who five days ago in Mexico came up just short of his 12th PGA Tour win, has been enjoying some family time in his adopted home of Arizona. Friday, he was courtside for Game 3 of the NBA Western Conference semifinal playoff game between the host Phoenix Suns and the Denver Nuggets.
The Suns started the game Friday night down 0-2 in the best-of-seven series, and “Rahmbo” was looking to bring some good luck to the purple and orange.

Rahm was presented a No. 23 jersey from the Gorilla, the Suns mascot, who was wearing a white Masters caddie jumpsuit with Rahm’s name across the back.
The Gorilla also gave Rahm a set of plastic golf clubs. Guessing those are going to Kepa, Rahm’s two-year-old son.

Meanwhile, about 750 miles northwest of Phoenix, LPGA standout Danielle Kang, just hours after helping Team USA eliminate England at the Hanwha Lifeplus International Crown at TPC Harding Park, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game between the San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers. Kang was born in San Francisco.
