Professional golfer Jon Rahm is one of the most recognized players on the PGA Tour.

The 26-year-old has already earned 12 professional wins, and despite not winning any major tournaments in his career yet, he’s spent time as the world’s No. 1 ranked golfer.

While he’s enjoyed a successful career on the golf course, Rahm is faring equally well off of it. He settled down and married his college girlfriend, Kelley Cahill.

Jon Rahm has been married to wife Kelley Cahill since 2019.

The pair met while in college at Arizona State University, where Rahm played golf at the NCAA level and Cahill was a javelin thrower for the Sun Devils.

The happy couple got married in Bilbao, Spain — near where Rahm grew up — and enjoyed a second ceremony in San Diego. Kelley grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona, and they currently reside there, too.

In April 2021, just a week before 2021 Masters Tournament,  Rahm and Kelley welcomed their first child together, son Kepa Cahill Rahm.

Rahm celebrated the moment on social media, captioning an Instagram post, “Kepa Cahill Rahm, was born 4/3/21 at 12:15am. Momma Kelley is doing great and recovering. Kepa is also in great health. He is 7.2 lb and 20.5inch, big boy from the Basque Country. Without a doubt the greatest day of my life!”

Prior to the birth of Kepa, Rahm made clear he would be present for the birth of his son, even if it meant withdrawing from The Masters and leaving Augusta National to be by his wife’s side.

The Spanish golfer has won twice at both the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, as well as the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. His most recent victory came at the BMW Championship in 2020, during which he took down Dustin Johnson in a one-hole playoff after sinking a birdie putt.

While he’s seen success on the PGA Tour, Rahm is still chasing a coveted major tournament victory. Rahm’s best finish at a major came in 2019 when he placed third at the U.S. Open.

Hopefully 2021 will be the year Rahm can change his fortunes and finally get his hands on a major win.
