Jon Rahm ‘ready to walk and hit it’ after U.S. Open WD

Jon Rahm is ready to put his best foot forward at this weekend’s LIV Golf Nashville tournament.

The Spanish captain of Legion XIII GC withdrew from last week’s U.S. Open with a foot infection that also forced him to pull out of LIV Golf Houston in the second round.

“I’m feeling good,” Rahm said during Wednesday’s media session in Nashville. “The main reason for the withdrawal from the two events was the infection I had and just to be precautionary toward not making it worse and seeing what steps I can take to prevent that from happening in the future.

“The wound is still there. I’m not going to show any graphic pictures, but it’s still there. It’s manageable now. I’m not going to really make it worse. A lot of things to follow up from what happened to make sure it heals properly and it doesn’t happen again.”

Rahm, who has dropped to No. 9 in the Official World Golf Ranking, said he feels prepared to hit the links on Friday at The Grove.

“I feel ready to walk and hit it,” Rahm said. “I haven’t been able to do much. It doesn’t take much for me to feel ready to compete. Looking forward to it. Just happy that I’m here.”

The two-time major winner spent last weekend watching his fellow LIV golfer Bryson DeChambeau defeat his Ryder Cup teammate Rory McIlroy to win the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, N.C.

“I thought it was quite a show from the comfort of my home,” Rahm said. “It’s a very enjoyable tournament to watch. I haven’t gotten the chance to enjoy a major from start to finish like that and to get to see a lot of golf was really fun, and to see how everything unfolded.

“You never want to see great players make a mistake at the end, whether it was Bryson’s three-putt on 15 or Rory’s on 16.”

Rahm, 29, is still looking for his first individual win this season on the LIV Golf circuit. He has finished in the top 10 in all seven tournaments he has completed, including a T3 at LIV Golf Singapore last month.
