Jon Rahm stunned the public after his impressive Masters victory. During the course of the tournament, the Spaniard showed a great game from the very start and deservedly won the event. As he spoke at the press conference after the victory, Rahm was overcome with happiness and could not keep his emotions in check as he discussed the great success.
Among the Europeans, Jon is the only one to have won both the Masters and the U.S. Open. This is exactly what he discussed at the press conference. “I find it hard to believe, the first one. You know, there’s… if there’s anything better than accomplishing something like this, is making history.
So the fact that you tell me that, to be the first European ever to do that, hard to explain. Out of all the accomplishments and the many great players that have come before me, to be the first to do something like that, it’s a very humbling feeling.”– he said, as quoted by sportsjoe.ie
Jon Rahm on his success
Such two majors can only be won by a great player, and Jon Rahm is clearly one of those great players.
A Spaniard pointed out how difficult it is to win such two tournaments, as well as what kind of competition awaits you in those two tournaments. “Thank you, by the way, because I don’t know how I would have found out. I still can’t believe I’m the first.
I don’t know what to tell you. It is a pretty good duo of majors. The U.S. Open is about as hard a test as you’re ever going to find, and, you know, I was trying to think, I was never going to win a major again unless it was at Torrey Pines.
To come somewhere that… it’s not like it was that long ago, but to come somewhere where I’ve been comfortable. I kept seeing the stats, the lowest score to par out of two starts and how great I’ve done here in the past but never gave myself a chance to win. All I asked for was a chance, and I got it.”
