Jon Rahm continues to see his first individual victory at LIV Golf resist. This weekend in Nashville he finished third in a tournament won by his teammate Tyrrell Hatton, results that allowed his Legion XIII team to take the team victory.

Another issue is that individual struggle that continues to be pursued without success. Also, with some anger or another. The Barrika player is still unable to win an individual tournament and in Nashville he has been some distance behind Hatton.

There he has been the protagonist because he has experienced a particularly uncomfortable moment. In one of his tee shots, on the 6th hole, a drone flying over the hitting zone, in one of the LIV's innovative measures, completely confused Rahm, who went into the water with the drive.

His anger has been total. "In every tournament. It's incredible, right in the swing. Every day the fu..g drones," a tremendously angry Jon released in a reaction that was immediately picked up by the cameras. Drones are one of the LIV's resources to give fans a different vision of golf.

In this case, Rahm does not seem at all satisfied with this measure. He attended Arizona State University and won 11 college tournaments, second only to Phil Mickelson who won 16 titles. In 2015 he participated as an amateur in the Phoenix Open, finishing fifth.

On April 1 he became first in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and remained there for 25 weeks, then regained the position and held it for another 35 weeks. He thus qualified for the U.S. Open and the Open Championship the following year: in the first of the two tournaments he came twenty-third, then turned professional, simultaneously losing the right to play in the Open.

The Quicken Loans National was his first professional event and he finished third. The Canadian Open instead saw him come second. At the end of the season he obtained a card for the 2017 PGA Tour. Rahm found his first success in the Farmers Insurance Open thanks to an eagle on the last hole, managing to enter the major tournaments on the world scene.

At the Mexico Championship, an event in the World Golf Championships series, he finished third, two strokes behind the winner Dustin Johnson, while in the second event, the Dell Technologies Match Play, he lost the final against Johnson himself.

He later won the Irish Open by six strokes and the final tournament of the European Tour season, the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, also winning the rookie of the year award.
