Jon Rahm is hoping his wins on the tour is a stepping stone towards winning his maiden major title. The world No 2 followed up his win at the Memorial Tournament with a play-off victory over Dustin Johnson at the BMW Championship, with the two titles coming on arguably the two hardest-scoring golf courses on the PGA Tour since its resumption in June.

“I would say in the past maybe this type of golf wasn’t my bread and butter, but again, based on the two events I’ve won this year, I’m pretty much ready. I’ve been able to dial it back when I needed to and I’ve been able to play it properly when I needed to.” Rahm said. “I think I’ve always thought the US Open is the type of golf course I can win on. I know my game can win on any golf course, but when you’re playing good, again, it becomes a mental challenge, so I welcome those.”

“I’m not going to lie to say this; there’s always something extra special to be possibly the first Spanish player to win a US Open. That would be amazing. So it’s a bit of an extra motivation there to play well this week and do what I have to do.” he added. “Besides having a strategy, it’s playing good golf. It’s sort of like in boxing where Mike Tyson said everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face. It’s the same thing here. We all have a plan, but if you hit it sideways, you have got to figure it out.”

“It’s going to give me confidence knowing that I can get it done. I think it’s going to be a little bit different just because this golf course plays a little bit longer, but still, you just need to play solid shots.” he continued. “And at the end of the day, there’s going to be a lot of people playing really good golf. It just comes to mental strength, right, who can endure the most and who can endure until the end. It’s that simple.”
