Jon Rahm Withdraws From U.S. Open

Two-time major winner Jon Rahm has withdrawn from this weeks U.S. Open at Pinehurst due to injury.

The Spaniard, who previously claimed the U.S. Open title in 2021, pulled out of the second round of LIV Houston on Saturday due to an infection in his left foot.

The 29-year-old arrived at the venue with hope that he would be able to recover before the commencement of the tournament but admitted the situation was a “concern”. However, he confirmed in a social media posted that evening that he will not be able to take part.

“After consulting with numerous doctors and my team, I have decided it is best for my long-term health, to withdraw from this week’s US Open Championship.

“To say I’m disappointed is a massive understatement.”

Rahm was set to tee off at 1:36pm local time on Thursday alongside Hideki Matsuyama and Jordan Spieth but his position in the field will now be taken by Jackson Suber.

As a result of this withdrawal, there will now be 12 LIV Golf players participating in the event.

The first round of the U.S. Open will tee-off from Thursday 13th June at 6:45am.
