We can see a career that is gaining momentum quickly with Rahm and he has sunk some big putts to go 2 – 0 in playoff wins in his career to date including a 60ft eagle putt to snatch the Farmers insurance open in 2017.

The big question with Rahm now is whether or not he can become the greatest Spanish player of all time but he does have a considerable gap to close on Sergio Ballesteros to turn those dreams and ambitions into reality.

Let’s take a close look at where one of golfers hottest stars of 2020 came from

Jon Rahm Bio

Jon Rahm as you probably know was born in Spain. Barrika, Spain, in the Basque country to be exact as a massive Athletic Bilbao soccer fan, but he still found his way to America where he completed an arts degree at the university of Arizona.

Jon was almost always going to turn pro at golf after holding the record of number 1 amateur golfer in the world for 60 weeks which is an unmatched record and his 11 tournament college wins puts him second in history behind the loveable Phil Mickleson who won 16.

An interesting fact about Jon is that he found English difficult to understand upon moving to the states and his love of Rap music allowed him to pick up the language a lot more quickly and he cites Eminem and Kendrick Lamar as his favourites.

Amateur Career

As mentioned, Jon Rahm was one of the most decorated Amateur golfers in college history but there are plenty of other achievements in his locker from his time a college golfer including:

  • Winning The Ben Hogan award in both 2015 and 16 – The only player to win the award twice
  • Leading player at the Eisenhower Tournament in 2014
  • 5th Place in the Phoenix Open in his Junior Year
  • Quarter Finals of the US Amateur golf competition in 2015
  • Won The Mark H McCormack Medal in 2015
  • Won The Pac 12 Conference Championship in 2015
  • Won A NCAPP Regional Tournament in 2015
  • Finished 3 In The National Championship.

He finished up his amateur career as the low scoring amateur at the U.S Open in 2016 at 7 over par and tied for 26th as an amateur.

Turning Pro

Rahm forfeited his exemption into the 2016 Open Championship by turning pro but he hit the ground running as a pro, leading his first tournament for 2 days before finishing up tied for 3rd, 4 strokes off the lead but he used this initial momentum to catapult him towards further success and it was enough to get him back into the US Open for 2017.

He was tied runner up at the RBC Canadian open and his performances of 2016 were enough to earn him a PGA Tour Card for 2017.

Pro Career

Rahm really arrived onto the Pro scene in 2017 by winning the Farmers insurance championship which moved him the 47th in the world rankings but more importantly gained Rahmbo entry to the Masters, The Players Championship, The PGA Championships and World Golf Championship Events.

He finished 2nd to Dustin Johnson at the WGC – Mexico match play event which gave him a world ranking of 14th.

Rahm would finish 27th in his first masters before going on to complete a busy 2017 by finishing 4th at the Wells Fargo tournament and winning the Irish Open by 6 strokes.

He then became European Rookie of the year as the highest ranking amateur in the Race to Dubai and by then winning the Dubai championship to complete the season.

2018 saw Rahm play on the winning European Ryder cup team following an early year win and the Careerbuilding championship and he also won the Spanish Open in his home country of Spain.

2020 saw Rahm win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with partner Ryan Palmer and he also added a second Irish and Spanish open along with winning the Dubai championship again being crowned the European Tour Golfer Of The Year for 2020.

2020 has been a disaster for almost everybody, except Rhambo who has come out of lockdown with two wins in the Memorial tournament, which boosted his world ranking to number 1 and then won the BMW championship despite receiving a 1 stroke penalty for picking up his ball off the green without marking it first.

Overall

Overall the future is looking very rosy for Rahmbo right now at the young age of 26 with plenty of golf yet to play in 2020 and the form and momentum currently, firmly on his side.
