    Jon Rahm: biography

    Jon Rahm is a professional golfer from Spain who is currently playing on the PGA Tour.

    Childhood and youth

    Jon Rahm was born on November 10, 1994, in Barrika, a small town located in the Basque Country of Spain. He grew up in a family of avid golfers, and his parents introduced him to the sport at a young age. His mother, Angela, was a local champion in her own right, while his father, Edorta, worked as a golf instructor.

    As a child, Rahm was a multi-sport athlete and excelled in soccer, basketball, and pelota, a traditional Basque game. However, golf soon became his passion, and he started playing competitively when he was just six years old. He quickly showed a natural talent for the sport and began to make a name for himself in local tournaments.

    Rahm attended high school at Centro Educativo Kadima, a Jewish day school in Bilbao, where he continued to play golf and improve his skills. After graduating, he decided to pursue a college education in the United States and enrolled at Arizona State University on a golf scholarship.

    During his time at Arizona State, Rahm became one of the most dominant players in college golf history, winning 11 tournaments in three years and earning numerous accolades. He was a two-time winner of the Ben Hogan Award, given to the best collegiate golfer in the United States, and was named the Pac-12 Player of the Year three times. His success in college paved the way for a successful professional career, and he has since become one of the top golfers in the world.

    Golf career

    Jon Rahm turned professional in 2016, and he quickly made a name for himself on the PGA Tour. He earned his PGA Tour card for the 2017 season through the Tour and finished in the top 5 in his first two events as a PGA Tour member.

    In January 2018, Rahm won his second PGA Tour event, the CareerBuilder Challenge, in a playoff against Andrew Landry. He followed that up with a win at the Spanish Open later that year, becoming the first Spanish player to win the tournament since 1995. Rahm continued his success on the PGA Tour in 2019, winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with his partner Ryan Palmer.

    In 2020, Rahm won his fourth PGA Tour title at the Memorial Tournament, which is widely considered one of the most prestigious events on the PGA Tour. His victory was particularly impressive because he came from behind to win, sinking a 25-foot putt on the final hole to secure the victory.

    Rahm had an outstanding 2021 season, winning the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in June. He overcame a two-shot deficit on the final day to win his first major championship by a stroke over Louis Oosthuizen. Later that year, he won the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, which was his fifth European Tour title.

    At the Sentry Tournament of Champions held at Kapalua Resort in Hawaii, Rahm began his 2022 season with a stellar performance, finishing with a total score of 33 under par across four rounds, which included a remarkable 61 in the third round.

    At the start of 2023, Rahm made a spectacular comeback at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, shooting a final-round 63 to clinch a two-shot victory over Collin Morikawa. He managed to overcome a significant six-shot deficit going into the final round with his impressive performance.

    Jon Rahm won the Masters Tournament on April 9, 2023 and was ahead of Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson.

    Throughout his professional career, Rahm has been ranked as high as world No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking, a remarkable achievement for a player so early in his career. He has also represented Spain in international competition, including the Ryder Cup and the World Cup of Golf.

    Rahm's success on the golf course is due in large part to his well-rounded game. He is known for his long drives, accurate iron play, and superb putting. He also has a strong mental game and is able to stay focused and composed under pressure.

    Personal life

    Currently Jon resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his wife, Kelley Cahill and their sons, born in 2021 and 2022.

    Rahm met Cahill, a former track and field athlete at Arizona State University, when they were both students there. They began dating in 2015 and got engaged in 2018. They tied the knot in December 2019 in a private ceremony in Rahm's native Spain.

    Rahm is fluent in both Spanish and English and often speaks to the media in both languages. He has said that his family is very important to him and that he stays in close contact with them despite living in the United States.
