Jon Rahm Career
As an amateur, he represented Spain at various levels and was part of the Spanish teams that won the 2011 European Championship for Boys and the 2014 European Amateur Team Championship. He was the individual leader at the 2014 Eisenhower Trophy. Rahm won the Ben Hogan Award in 2015 and 2016, becoming the first player to win it twice. He was also the first runner-up for the 2014 Eisenhower Trophy.
He competed in the 2015 Phoenix Open as an amateur in his junior year and finished fifth, three shots behind the winner. He won the Mark H. McCormack Medal in 2015 as the No. 1 golfer in the world, qualifying him for the U.S. Open and Open Championships of the following year. After the US Open, Rahm turned pro, which meant he lost his 2016 Open Championship exemption. The following week, Rahm played in his first event as a professional at the Quicken Loans National. He held or shared the lead through the first two rounds and finished tied for third, four strokes behind winner Billy Hurley III. The finish was enough to get Rahm back into The Open, as the Quicken Loans National was part of the Open qualifying series. Rahm finished second at the RBC Canadian Open, securing temporary special status for the remainder of the season.
He earned enough points as a non-member to earn a 2017 PGA Tour card. In late January 2017, Rahm won the Farmers Insurance Open with a 60-foot eagle putt on the final hole to win his first PGA Tour title. With the win, he jumped from 137th to 46th in the Official World Golf Championship and also qualified for the Masters, The Players Championship, the PGA Championship, and the World Golf Championship. On his European Tour debut, he finished tied for 10th at the French Open, and the following week he claimed his first European Tour victory, winning the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open by six strokes.
Rahm won the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, the final event of the 2017 European Tour season. He was awarded the European Tour Rookie of the Year award for finishing the Race to Dubai as the highest-placed rookie. However, some of his fellow European Tour pros, such as Richard Bland, felt that the award should have gone to a more dedicated member of the tour. Outside of majors and WGCs, Rahm only played in four European Tour regular seasons. Rahm began 2018 by finishing eight strokes behind Dustin Johnson at the Sentinel Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii. A month later, Rahm won the CareerBuilder Challenge for his second career PGA Tour victory after a sudden-death playoff with Andrew Landry. After birdies on the first three extra holes, Rahm won the fourth iron with a birdie. At the time, the win moved Rahm to a career-high second place in the world rankings. In April 2018, Rahm won the Open de España on the European Tour.
In September 2018, Rahm made the European team for the 2018 Ryder Cup. Team Europe won the Ryder Cup, defeating the United States 17.5–10.5 at Le Golf National outside Paris, France. On December 2, 2018, Rahm won the limited-area Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. On April 28, 2019, Rahm won the New Orleans Zurich Classic on the PGA Tour with partner Ryan Palmer.

On October 6, 2019, Rahm won his second consecutive Open de España at the Club de Campos in Madrid. Rahm entered the final round with a five-shot lead and maintained that advantage with a final-round 66, 5-under, to finish tied at 22-under 262.
On November 24, 2019, Rahm won the season-long Race to Dubai title on the European Tour by winning the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. He also won the European Tour Golfer of the Year award.

On August 30, 2020, Rahm won the BMW Championship, the second FedEx Cup playoff event. Rahm shot a 64 in the final round and beat Dustin Johnson in a playoff with a 66-foot putt on the first playoff hole. On January 4, 2021, it was announced that Rahm had signed a multi-year deal with Callaway Golf Company, ending his association with TaylorMade after he turned professional. The store contained all equipment and clothing. After finishing third at the Open Championships in July, Rahm prepared to travel to Tokyo to prepare for the 2020 Summer Olympics. When Rahm took his third and final COVID-19 test before departure, he tested positive again, forcing him to withdraw from the event. Rahm was replaced by Jorge Campillo. In September 2021, Rahm played for the European team at the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. Team USA went 19-9 and Rahm went 3-1-1, including a loss in Sunday’s singles, match against Scottie Scheffler.
Rahm kicked off the 2022 Sentinel Tournament of Champions at the Kapalua Resort in Hawaii. He shot 33 under par in four rounds, including a 61 in the third round. This broke the original PGA Tour par record of 31 but was not good enough to win the tournament as Cameron Smith shot a 34 under par to win the title and eclipse the scoring record. Three weeks later at the Farmers Insurance Open, Rahm finished in a playoff between Luke List and Will Zalatoris, eventually settling for a tie for third place.
On May 1, 2022, Rahm won the Mexican Open for his seventh career PGA Tour victory. In September, he shot a final-round 62 to finish tied for second at the BMW PGA Championship, one stroke behind Shane Lowry. In October, Rahm won the Acciona Open de España, shooting a final-round 62 to win by six shots over Matthieu Pavon. It was his third Open de España title, shared with Seve Ballesteros.
