    (November 10, 1994- )
    Born in Barrika, Spain
    Won the US Open (2021)

    He is nicknamed Rahmbo.
    He explained his frequent displays of temper -- such as slamming his clubs -- by claiming that he needs to vent his anger to perform at his best.
    After he was named European Tour Rookie of the Year (2017), some European pros argued that the title should have gone to a golfer who competed more regularly in Europe. (Rahm had played in four European Tour events that year.)
    He was forced to withdraw from defending in Memorial Tournament title while leading by six strokes when he tested positive for COVID-19 (June 5, 2021).
    He credited rap songs with teaching him slang and other phrases not covered in ESL (English as a second language) classes, citing Kendrick Lamar's 'Swimming Pools' and Eminem's 'Love the Way You Lie' as having been particularly useful.
    He was the first person to win the Ben Hogan Award for best college golfer twice (2015-16).
    He spent a record 60 weeks at #1 as an amateur golfer.
    He has worked on his temper with a mental coach, Joseba del Carmen, who used to be a bomb disposal expert.
