As has happened for other top players on the PGA Tour, even for Jon Rahm, at one point, he had been compared to LIV Golf. But the Spanish champion has silenced these rumors, guaranteeing to respect the commitments undertaken with the PGA Tour.
However, this did not prevent him from taking a less extremist position than the one he maintained. until recently, by Rory McIlroy. Rahm says the PGA Tour’s top players (including himself) owe the LIV gratitude for the threat he created to the Tour.
Jon Rahm, statements
“I think on this side of the fence we have to be grateful that the LIV was born” “I don’t know if these changes would have taken shape if LIV hadn’t appeared on the scene” “So, in a way, yes.
we must be grateful”. As we have seen, the stars of the PGA Tour will benefit from elevated events (breaking news, for WM Phoenix Open, The Wells Fargo Championship and Travelers Championship there will also be Monday qualifiers, NDR), with increased prize pools and more frequent challenges among the best players.
Despite the animosity that dominates the professional golf world, Rahm believes there is the possibility of coexistence between the two factions. Obviously, the achievement of truce must go through the cessation of legal disputes, “I just hope that the widespread negative perception related to this story will stop” “I don’t think there is a need for a lawsuit, nor for mutual negative comments” “If we want to try to coexist, let us coexist”.
I hope your words don’t fall on deaf ears, Jon. Jon Rahm Rodríguez (Barrika, November 10, 1994) is a Spanish golfer. Already number 1 in the world rankings of amateur golf, for a record 60 weeks, he reached the first place of the official ranking after winning the Memorial Tournament in July 2020, then returning to occupy the top position following the victory of the U.S. Open in June 2021: he was the first Spaniard to triumph in the prestigious tournament.
