Jon Rahm knows for sure his 2-month-old son won’t fit in the US Open trophy because he tried to get him to participate
Jon Rahm is no longer the best golfer in the world without a major championship. On June 20, 2021, Rahm won the US Open, shooting six under par in four rounds at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California.
Rahm winning the US Open trophy the day he made the perfect first Father’s Day gift for the man who first became a dad in April 2021. So when Rahm joined the Dan Patrick show this week he spoke about the victory, the trophy, his son Kepa and how he tried to see if his 2 month old baby would fit into his new precious possession.
Jon Rahm lost “best player who did not win a major” title to Torrey Pines
Rahm joined Patrick for a high-profile interview that revolved around his US Open victory in 2021.
The Scottsdale, Arizona resident is currently No. 1 in the world, according to the official world golf rankings. Prior to his four rounds at Torrey Pines, Rahm won 12 professional tournaments. He also racked up six second places, six third places and 51 top 10, according to the PGA Tour.
Despite the success, he told Patrick he was “put on that ‘best player to ever win a major’ list very, very quickly. He called the removal from that list in San Diego” a relief ”.
Now the no-major debate is shifting to several other golfers. Xander Sc Chaudele ranks No.5 in the world and has yet to win one of the Big Four. Patrick Cantlay (n ° 9), Tyrrell Hatton (n ° 11), Harris English (n ° 12), Viktor Hovland (n ° 14), Daniel Berger (n ° 16) will join him without major in the top 20. Tony Finau (# 17) and Scottie Scheffler (# 19).
Dan Patrick asked Rahm everything about the US Open Trophy
“Jon, we want to play a game,” radio host Patrick said opening his interview with the major champion. “Where’s the US Open trophy?” “
Patrick and his cronies walked around the room and guessed where the Rahms were keeping championship gear. Guesses ranged from in his “Man Cave” to still in the box. Following the predictions, Rahm reported that the trophy is on a mantle in his living room where “it’s the first thing you see when you walk into the house.”
After finding out where the trophy was, Patrick asked the crucial question:
Dan Patrick: Would the baby fit in the trophy? If you wanted to bathe the baby?
Jon Rahm: I tried, it doesn’t fit. He’s too old. He is too fat ! I think if it’s a newborn it would be fine. The top of the trophy is screwed on. There’s these two little things that come out that might actually hurt the baby a bit, so I haven’t tried for too long.
Patrick continued that line of questions, asking if the original Spaniard had had a drink of the trophy. Rahm only responded shyly, “Yes. When asked what he was drinking from the cup, Rahm replied insolently, “Orange juice. This is what I will say in public.
A Twitter The video of Jon Rahm drinking from the trophy at a boisterous celebration has gone viral and at first glance it’s not orange juice at all, or there is another drink mixed in with the little one’s healthy drink. -lunch.
Rahm isn’t the first athlete to go wild with a trophy
Major golf trophies are owned by a player for a calendar year, so there is little debauchery that these trophies are likely to see. On the other hand, the Stanley Cup travels the world during the NHL offseason and is known to be the center of many good times.
The NBA’s Larry O’Brien Trophy has a basketball on top, so players can’t drink it. The craziest moment captured with this trophy is the snap of Dallas Mavericks Governor Mark Cuban hugging him in a urinal at a club during the post-2011 championship celebration.
The Major League Baseball Commissioner’s Trophy is pretty sharp, so I hope no one has ever tried to put a baby in it. There aren’t many well-known debauchery stories on this material. However, he was disrespected last year by the man who occupies the post he is named after. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred called the trophy a “piece of metal” when discussing the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal in 2020.
