Jon Rahm Rodriguez grew up in Barrika, a town of about 1,500 in the Basque country of northern Spain. Got started playing a game in Spain called "Pelota," which in the Western Hemisphere is called Jai-Alai, and helped Rahm pick up his excellent hand-eye coordination. At 13, he began working on his distinctive full swing with Spanish golf coach Eduardo Celles. As a junior, he won titles with aggressive and creative play, such as hitting a 4-iron over water at the last hole of an event with no thought of laying up. It's hardly surprising Rahm drew comparisons with Seve Ballesteros. He never saw Ballesteros play but met him once. "I was too young to appreciate who I was shaking hands with," he said of Ballesteros, who passed away in 2011. "Obviously, I grew up on Tiger (Woods) and Phil (Mickelson), respecting and admiring both players for what they've done. But my idol it's always been Seve. I try to emulate what he inspired on the golf course."
While growing up, Rahm realized he was given a good body for golf success, and he was always eager to be the best and studied to be the best by watching videos of all the great players, from Hogan to Nicklaus to Seve to Trevino so that he could be the most successful player.
Rahm has the same integrity. At age 16, he was runner-up at the European Boys Championship in Stockholm. When he returned to his room, he discovered he had played the final round with 15 clubs in his bag rather than the permitted maximum of 14. Despite being the only person who knew, he didn't hesitate to inform his coach and was disqualified from the championship.
Rahm was offered a scholarship at Arizona State due mainly to his reputation, and he accepted the offer from then-coach Tim Mickelson. At 17, he was off to America, a country he had never visited and where he struggled with English. Initially, it was tough, but after working hard for several months, his grasp of the language and all aspects of his life improved.
When Rahm graduated in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in communications, he had an incredible college record and was No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He won 11 times as a Sun Devil, the second-most in school history, five wins behind Phil Mickelson. In 12 tournaments in 2016, Rahm finished inside the top 10 in all of them. His collegiate wins included the 2016 NCAA Albuquerque Regional, the 2016 Pac-12 Championship, the 2015 NCAA San Diego Regional, and the ASU Thunderbird Invitational (three times). He became the first player in history to receive the Ben Hogan Award twice, in 2015 and '16, given to the top collegiate golfer. He also was honored with the 2015 McCormack Medal, awarded to the No. 1-ranked player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He was a four-time All-Pac-12 selection, earning first-team honors in his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. He was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year in 2013.
Another critical aspect of moving to America, he was introduced to Dave Phillips, who not only is a teaching professional but he was the co-founder of the Titleist Performance Center. The two have been together since Rahm was 17. When they first met, Phillips helped Rahm make some changes, and basically, Rahm hasn't made any swing changes since. Phillips has helped him build his swing around his body's strengths and weaknesses. One of those weaknesses stems from when he was born with a club foot on his right leg. That means his right leg down to the ankle was straight, but his foot was 90 degrees turned inside and upside down. So when Rahm was born, doctors relocated, pretty much broke every bone in the ankle, and Rahm was cast within 20 minutes. Every week he had to go back to the hospital to get a recast so his leg didn't grow at the same rate from the knee down. He had minimal ankle mobility in his right leg. It's a centimeter and a half shorter, as well. He doesn't take a full swing because his right ankle doesn't have the mobility or stability to take it. To compensate, he has learned to turn to bow his wrist to help him create power in his swing. Phillips was a great help in perfecting that move, and Rham hasn't had to change anything in almost a decade.
Rahm's success translated into an amateur competition as well. He won consecutive Spanish Amateurs in 2014 and '15. In 2014, he reached match play at the British Amateur, won the decisive point for the Europeans at the Palmer Cup, and pushed Spain to a European Team championship. He set the record for the lowest individual score at the World Amateur Team Championship in Japan in 2014, breaking the mark held since 1960 by Jack Nicklaus. Rahm shot 23-under-par 263, besting Nicklaus' 72-hole total of 269. At the 2015 U.S. Amateur, Rahm reached the quarterfinals before losing to runner-up Derek Bard. He reached the round of 32 at the 2014 U.S. Amateur.
Rahm's first PGA Tour event was at the 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba, where he missed the cut. His next start at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open resulted in a T-5th, making him the first amateur to finish in the top-five of a PGA Tour event since Chris Wood finished T-5th at the 2008 British Open. It was the first time an amateur finished in the top five of an American PGA Tour event since Phil Mickelson won the 1991 Chrysler Classic of Tucson. After Phoenix in 2015, Rahm finished T-64th at the Travelers Championship and T-10th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
2016 Notes: Still an amateur, he finished T-10th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba on the PGA Tour. He completed his senior year at Arizona State by winning the Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year award and became the first two-time recipient of the Ben Hogan Award. Rahm finished T-3rd at the NCAA individual Championship, as his Arizona State team didn't make it to the finals. After graduating, he played as an amateur one last time at the U.S. Open, finishing T-23rd. The next week, he turned professional and finished T-3rd at the Quicken Loans National while playing on a sponsor exemption, four shots behind winner Billy Hurley III. His Quicken Loans finish secured a spot at the British Open at Royal Troon, where he placed T-59th. The next week on another sponsor exemption, he finished T-2nd at the RBC Canadian Open, one stroke behind winner Jhonattan Vegas. That result provided enough FedExCup points in his fourth start as a professional to gain membership on the PGA Tour. Rahm finished the year T-8th at the ISPS Handa World Cup with teammate Rafa Cabrera Bello on the Spanish team at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Australia.
2017 Notes: Made the cut in his first four events of the year, and at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, won with a final-day 65. He made four birdies and two eagles in the closing round, one of the eagles coming at the final hole, where he drained a 60-foot, 8-inch putt for the win. Making his first start at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, he followed an opening-round 73 at Spyglass Hill with rounds of 67-67-68 to finish T-5th, seven shots behind champion Jordan Spieth. In his first start at a World Golf Championships event, he reached 14 under par. He held the solo lead in the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship for a short time after beginning the second nine with par-eagle-par-par-birdie-birdie. Missed seven-foot and eight-foot putts at holes 16 and 17 for bogeys resulted in a T-3rd finish, two behind winner Dustin Johnson. At the WGC-Dell Match Play, he won his first six matches, reaching the final against Dustin Johnson. In that match, Johnson jumped out to a 4-up lead with six holes left. Rahm made birdies on three of them to lower the deficit to one hole, but Johnson halved holes 17 and 18 for the 1-up victory. After finishing T-10th at the Shell Houston Open, Rahm climbed to 12th in the Official World Golf Ranking in his 40th week as a professional, the fastest since Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods. He finished 4th at the Wells Fargo Championship and, with his T-2nd result at the Charles Schwab Challenge, reached 9th place in the world ranking, making him the 100th player to reach top-10 status since the rankings first started in 1986.
