Rahm became a professional in 2016, and he quickly gained a spot on the PGA Tour and began to dominate. His maiden PGA TOUR victory, at the Farmers Insurance Open in 2017, marked the beginning of his meteoric rise to prominence in the game of professional golf.

The Spanish international has currently won seven international championships and eleven PGA Tour titles. His legendary four of his seven victories came in the 2022–2023 season in the Sentry Tournament of Champions, The Masters, The American Express, and The Genesis Invitational.

He had a great start to his career, holding the #1 spot in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for a record 60 weeks. Rahm then shot up to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking, a position he had held since winning the Memorial Tournament in July 2020.

John played for the European Ryder Cup team twice, going 3-1-1 in 2020. His achievement of being the first Spanish golfer to win the U.S. Open in June 2021 is another noteworthy and exceptional ranking. Rahm is still a top-tier talent.

Who is John Ram’s wife?

Kelley Cahill-Rahm was born in February 1994 in Lake Oswego, Oregon before later moving to Scottsdale, Arizona with her family. 

After enrolling at Arizona State University to study global health and biology, Cahill eventually ran across Rahm at a Halloween party. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, she was dressed as a referee and he was dressed like a SWAT officer.

Cahill represented the Sun Devils, ASU’s school nickname, as a javelin thrower on the track and field team.

Tennis Recruiting Network, a website that examines junior tennis, lists her as a two-star recruit after she played at Scottsdale’s Chaparral High School, suggesting that she was also a very skilled player.

Cahill has been spotted cheering Rahm on frequently all over the world. The American has been present for all of the Spaniard’s Major wins in addition to his other golfing accomplishments.

The couple, who were married in 2019, declared their first child in November 2020. Eneko Cahill Rahm, their second child, was also welcomed into the world in August 2022. And just before he defended his title at The Masters, Rahm revealed that his third child was due in 2024.
