Wedding Bells For Rahm After A Nine Out Of Ten 2019 Season.

….. Albany, Bahamas¬†

Jon Rahm will tie the wedding knot later this week when he marries long-time girlfriend and American-born, Kelley Cahill.

Rahm, 25 ended what he ranked a 9 out of 10 season in finishing a gallant runner-up earlier today here at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

The Spaniard looked all set to become the first repeat winner since host Tiger Woods won back-to-back in 2006 and 2007 at the former host venue of Sherwood Country Club, and with the wins being Woods third and fourth in the event.

A fortnight earlier, Rahm was crowned European Tour No. 1 in winning the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and a two days later the reigning DDF Irish Open and Spanish Open champion was honoured with the European Tour ‘2019 Golfer of the Year’ award.

“It was the best year I’ve had,” he said.

“I’m not going to give it a 10 because I don’t think anybody would give it a 10, but close to a nine out of 10.”

Rahm had been leading until eventual winner, Henrik Stenson pulled-off a totally remarakble fairway wood second shot at the par-5 15th hole with the Swede’s ball stopping about 6-inches right of the cup for a tap-in eagle ‘3’.¬† The effort saw Stenson leapfrog Rahm and a pair of pars was good enough for Stenson’s first victory in over two years.

Though Rahm said he was unaward of Stenson’s heroics.

“I wish I would have had a scoreboard on 18 to know that I was one back because I definitely played it 20 feet short of the pin thinking I was at least tied for the lead, so I wanted to give myself a chance,” said Rahm.

“But had I known, I would have been a little bit more aggressive. It is what it is. I still hit a good shot, I just mis-hit it a tiny bit and came up shorter than I wanted it.

“There’s a scoreboard on the left on nine, but it’s kind of hard to see the small numbers, I couldn’t really tell. And it wasn’t until I got to the green where they changed the position of the names.”
