Jon Rahm is a great golfer who has shown his qualities many times. However, just like any athlete, sometimes he has a bad season and bad days. Rahm spoke at the press conference about the last season and certain things; “I set my goals every year and I’m pretty ambitious so I’m not always going to accomplish everything I set my mind out to.
It can be tough in a sport where the most accomplished athlete of all time won 30 per cent of the time, right? That being Tiger (Woods). I think there’s a lot of things you can do well as an athlete and as a player to consider a positive year.
Obviously, you want to win events. That’s there. The only thing I didn’t do last year that I wish I would have done is compete better in majors and give myself a better chance. So obviously that being a goal this year, hopefully get number two and give Spain another major.”

Jon Rahm and Majors
Rahm explained the reason for the failure at the Majors. However, no one doubts that Rahm will be good again at the majors and shut up all the critics. “I was close at the US Open.
I was one back, I just had a bad final round. I don’t think there’s a way to explain it. For people that may not believe it, I battled my swing most of the year. I wasn’t as comfortable as I was the year prior and that showed.
Then when you go to major championship golf where you need to be better in every single way, those mistakes are going to show. It seems like in the fall things got going a little bit better. I felt like for the most part I was playing better than scores were showing.
Maybe once the PGA Tour season was over I took some time off and reset and that’s why I played well in the fall.”
