In an interview on the Golf Subpar podcast, Jon Rahm discussed the celebration following the European team's Ryder Cup win. While thrilled with the victory, Rahm seemed disappointed in his own energy level during the celebration. Labeling himself as the "LVP" (Least Valuable Player) of Team Europe's Ryder Cup afterparty, Rahm admitted to feeling he could've brought more energy, despite being one of the more important players.
"I was the LVP, the least valuable player. I let the team down severely. It's disappointing... I thought it was going to be Shane [Lowry] but everybody told me that the dark horse in the race was Sepp Straka. Apparently, Sepp can put some drinks down."- Jon Rahm said, as quoted by firstsportz.com!
