Jon Rahm, nicknamed “Rahmbo,” is a professional golfer from Spain. He is the first Spanish golfer to win the U.S. Open.
Jon Rahm Rodríguez was born in Barrika, Biscay, Spain on November 10, 1994. By the time he was ready to attend college, he earned a scholarship to play golf at Arizona State University. As a sophomore, he won the 2014 Eisenhower Trophy and during his junior year, he won the Ben Hogan Award. In January 2015, he finished fifth at the 2015 Phoenix Open and by April he became the top-ranked golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. Rahm had two stints as the top-ranked golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, which he held for a combined total of 60 weeks, an all-time record. In the fall of his senior year, he made it to the quarterfinals of the 2015 U.S. Amateur. He also won the Ben Hogan Award for a second time, making him the only person to win it twice. Rahm also won the Mark H. McCormack Medal, which when combined with his ranking qualified him for the U.S. Open and Open Championship to be held the following year. He won the Pac-12 Conference championship and placed third in the national championship.
While Rahm attended Arizona State University, he won 11 golf tournaments, next only to Phil Mickelson in the school’s history. Rahm was the low amateur at the 2016 U.S. Open, which would be his last competition as an amateur. He graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and signed a sponsorship deal with TaylorMade Golf Company.
Because Rahm became a professional golfer, he no longer qualified to play in the Open Championship as an amateur. He finished third at the Quicken Loans National, his first professional tournament, which qualified him for the Open Championship as a professional. He then tied for second at the Canadian Open. At the end of the season, he had earned enough non-member points to earn a PGA Tour card for the following season.
Rahm’s first PGA title came in January of 2017 at the Farmers Insurance Open which propelled him up the Official World Golf Ranking list and qualified him for more prestigious tournaments. He had two important runner-up finishes at the WGC-Mexico Championship and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, which propelled him to a top 20 ranking. A respectable performance at the Masters, followed by a fourth place finish at the Wells Fargo Championship landed him in the top ten. He tied for tenth place at the Open de France, his professional European debut, and then won his first European title at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. He won his final event of the 2017 European Tour season, at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, and was named the European Tour Rookie of the Year.
Rahm started the 2018 season as the runner-up at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, before winning the CareerBuilder Challenge Desert Classic. Now ranked as the second-best professional golfer in the world, he won the Open de España, helped the European team win the Ryder Cup, and won the Hero World Challenge.
In 2019, Rahm won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, the Open de España, and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai before being named the European Tour Golfer of the Year.
In 2020, he became the number one professional golfer in the world after a win at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Rahm fell to second two weeks later, with a runner-up performance at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, but less than a month later he won the BMW Championship.
In early 2021, Rahm ended his association with TaylorMade Golf Company and signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with Callaway Golf Company that included equipment and clothing. After COVID-19 forced him to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament, he came back to win the 2021 United States Open Championship, becoming the first Spaniard to do so. Another bout of COVID-19 forced him to withdraw from the 2020 Summer Olympics, although he was still named PGA Player of the Year for his tour performance. Rahm also played for the European team in the 2021 Ryder Cup, where the team from the U.S. won.
Rahm won his seventh career PGA Tour victory, the Mexico Open in 2022. He also obtained a federal trademark registration for his nickname “RAHMBO” for golf hats and t-shirts that same year.
