Jon Rahm Bidding for More Major Glory In 2023

Spanish golfer Jon Rahm won the second Major Championship of his career when he prevailed in the 2023 US Masters at Augusta National Golf Club earlier this year. He prevailed by four shots ahead of American duo Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson.

Rahm’s success in the opening major of 2023 was a big moment in his career. The former US Open winner had performed well at Augusta before, and he was rewarded for that consistency on the course.

The US Masters winner is now back at the top of the world golf rankings where he sits ahead of Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy, respectively. The battle between those three golfers is going to be fascinating to watch as the season progresses.

Rahm Favorite to Win US PGA Championship

The next opportunity for Rahm to add to his major tally in golf will come at the 2023 US PGA Championship where he is sure to be one of the leading betting tips today for the event. He tops the betting at +700 to come out on top at Oak Hill East Course.

Rahm’s best performance in the US PGA Championship so far was the fourth place he achieved in 2018. He should be full of confidence following his Augusta success, and if he does prove successful in the tournament, he will remain on course for the Grand Slam.

The 28-year-old has featured twice since the US Masters. He finished in a tie for 15th place in the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links. More recently, he was second in the Mexico Championship at Vidanta Vallarta, which was won by Tony Finau.

Former Winner Vying to Regain US Open Title

This year’s US Open returns to California, the state Rahm won his first major championship. It will be played at the Los Angeles Country Club and the 2022 winner will be hoping to regain his title in the tournament.

Rahm had to settle for a tie for 12th place in 2022 in his bid to defend his crown. The event was won by Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick who shot a round of 68 on the final day, which was enough for a one-shot success. The course in Los Angeles is expected to suit Rahm, particularly the par-five holes. If he scores heavily on them, just like he did at Augusta, he will have a great chance of another Major Championship win.

Open Championship Set for Royal Liverpool This Year

Rahm’s pursuit of a first Claret Jug will continue at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake this year for the 151st Open Championship. As a key member of the Ryder Cup team, the European golfer will prove popular with the spectators at that tournament.

In 2021, Rahm finished third in the Open behind Collin Morikawa and Jordan Spieth respectively. The previous two wins of the Open at Hoylake are Tiger Woods and McIlroy. If Rahm can follow those two players, he would be joining a special company.

The year has started in the best possible way for Rahm, and if he continues in the same form, he could be set for a special season in the sport.
