Jon Rahm is the new winner of the Masters at Augusta. You have been dreaming of this kind of success since your earliest days. Rahm has achieved his dream, but he will not stop there. The Spaniard became the first European to win the Us Open and the Masters.
His goals are now even bigger. The emotions he felt after the match are hard to describe. At the press conference after the great success, Rahm spoke about his impressions of everything, and it was clear how excited he was. “It’s hard to put it into words,” -Jon Rahm said, quoted by golfnewsnow.ca “Obviously, we all dream of things like this as players and you try to visualize what it’s going to be like and what it’s going to feel like and when I hit that third shot on the green and I could tell it was close by the crowd’s reaction, just the wave of emotion of so many things just overtook me." The emotions were so extreme that at one point he almost cried.
“I never thought I was going to cry by winning a golf tournament, but I got very close on that 18th hole,” said Rahm.
Jon Rahm: I was nervous
The final day was very tense for him. You are aware of the stakes, what such a match entails, and it is quite normal to feel a degree of nervousness.
It is precisely in these moments that it is most difficult to stay calm and achieve your goal. Rahm tried to hide his nervousness, and it worked well. Nevertheless, wars were fought inside of him. "What is going on on the outside is not always a reflection of the inside," he said at the press conference.
"I was calm, I never got frustrated, I never really felt like anything was out of control. But obviously you're nervous, right. There's tension out there."
