Best US Open fin­ish: T23, 2016 Fin­ish in 2004: DNP

The Spa­niard’s strong out­ing at the Mas­ters this April, where he im­pressed in fin­ish­ing fourth, was Rahm’s first ma­jor top-10 fin­ish and con­firmed, if any fur­ther con­fir­ma­tion was nec­es­sary, that he has the game for the big oc­ca­sion. The only real ques­tion mark still hang­ing over him is his tem­per­a­ment which got the bet­ter of him at times at Au­gusta, as it did at Erin Hills last year when he was clearly ag­gra­vated dur­ing rounds of 76 and 73 that saw him miss the cut by four. He’s not the most ac­cu­rate driver in the world ei­ther (59 per cent of fair­ways hit in 2018) so he’ll be hop­ing the fes­cue rough isn’t ex­ces­sively pe­nal.
