Jon Rahm fires back at ‘career happiness’ question before US Open

Prior to the 2024 US Open, Jon Rahm stated that he is content and implied that journalists are attempting to portray the Spaniard as “playing badly.”

On the eve of the 2024 US Open at Pinehurst, an injured Jon Rahm insisted he is very happy with his career.

Before the third men’s major of the year, Rahm gave reporters a somber injury update. On Tuesday, he told reporters that the media is attempting to portray the Spaniard as “playing badly.”

The 2023 Masters victor was fast to note that he’s had two “bad” performances so far this year.

Despite the fact that his detractors would argue that they were most evident at Augusta National and the PGA Championship at Valhalla, where he was unable to make the cut.

Rahm paid an estimated half a billion dollars to join the elite LIV Golf League in December of last year, and you could occasionally forgive yourself for believing he was suffering from a slight case of buyer’s regret.

He has beseeched LIV to convert to a conventional 72-hole format, for instance, expressing his dissatisfaction with the league’s current format.

Additionally, he has expressed regret for missing some PGA Tour events, like the Players Championship and the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

Rahm has also said that he believed that by changing sides, talks between LIV’s Saudi backers and the North American circuit would proceed more quickly.

When one reporter asked Rahm how happy he was with his career at the moment, he firmly replied, “I’m in a happy place.”

“Despite the impression that many of you have that I’m playing poorly, it’s not like I’ve been playing poorly. I had a difficult two weeks.”

The reporter quickly clarified that the question wasn’t meant to imply that.
Rahm went on, “No, not you.

“Unfortunately, my performances at Augusta and the PGA weren’t my best. I’ve finished in the top 10 and had the opportunity to win in most of the tournaments I’ve played. I am, however, content.

Thus far, my career has been amazing. Although this year hasn’t started off perfectly, I’ve had many bad starts, and that doesn’t preclude me from having a fantastic finish.”

With Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama, Rahm will participate in the first two rounds of the 2024 US Open.
