During the press conference after joining LIV Golf, Rahm talked about the reasons for joining. Speaking to Fox Sports, Jon had an interesting reaction when asked about the 54-hole format. For him, the primary thing is to get used to the new environment and to be someone who will influence the progress of golf.

"I know captains have a say and I know they listen to the players as part of the organization so I'm looking forward to having some conversations and giving them my opinion and maybe seeing some changes for the best in the future.


But my goal with this is to grow the game of golf, to make it better, whatever that may be. I'm an ambitious person but I'm not a greedy one, I know I can't have everything, so there are some things I'll have to sacrifice and for right now that is one I can live with."
