Jon Rahm: I'm one of those players that wishes we could have an actual off-season

Jon Rahm has always been known as a golfer who was always open to new challenges and ready for anything that awaited him. It seems that the Spaniard has been feeling a bit tired lately, which is why he needs a rest. Also, lack of time with family is one of the reasons why Rahm would like the off-season.

“I've been comfortable the last few years playing around 22, 23 events, but I can tell you I'm one of those players that wishes we could have an actual off-season, and with the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour coming together closer, I'm hoping I get to a point where maybe October, November, December, there's no events for me to play.

I can be home and be dad and earn an off-season like basically almost every other athlete in this country can do”. - Jon Rahm said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Jon Rahm and Masters

After scoring a fantastic result at the Masters this year, Rahm decided to go to the RBC Heritage right after.

He was aware that it would be difficult to give his best, but he still decided to play in the tournament. “You know, I wish I could say one week off was enough. It was a long Masters and then went right away to RBC, so it wasn't - I wish I could have rested a little more, but it is the life we signed up for.“ Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods' TGL is something that many are looking forward to.

We are still a few months away from the fantastic tournament that has been talked about for a long time. Jon Rahm is one of the golfers who feels great excitement about what lies ahead. Everything will be a big unknown, and Rahm will have the honor and opportunity to play in such a big tournament.

“I didn't realize how big it was going to be, which makes it a lot better. I'm looking forward to being able to start it. I don't know really what to expect with playing - I have a simulator in my home and it's a 14-foot screen TV and you're 12 feet from the screen, and from what I hear we're going to be 35 yards from the screen and the screen is going to be 60 feet wide and 40-some feet tall."
