Jon Rahm’s status for the Masters just got a little clearer.
Rahm posted on Instagram that he and wife Kelley welcomed their baby boy, Kepa, early Saturday morning. Rahm said that everyone is “doing great” and that Saturday was “without a doubt the greatest day of my life!”
The world No. 3 had said previously that Kelley was due the second week of April, putting in jeopardy his appearance at the Masters. He said he wouldn’t have hesitated to miss the first major of the year.
“I would never miss the birth of my firstborn in a million years,” he said. Read more
Back in the beginning of February Rahm said this:
“No matter where I am and what I’m doing, if the phone rings I’m flying back, and I’m going back home to be there for the birth of my son.
"Before anybody asks, yes, if I’m at Augusta and I’m playing well and she starts (going into labor), I’m flying back. I would never miss the birth of my firstborn in a million years, or any born for that matter." Read more here
The video above is from Rahm's pre-Masters warm-up round at Augusta last year, when his extraordinary shot sent the ball skipping over the water before circling around on the far bank to make a perfect hole-in-one.
