Below you can see Jon Rahm’s golf swing from the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions. How short is that backswing?! His driver backswing may be super short but statistically Rahm is one of the best drivers of the ball on the PGA Tour.

If Rahm’s short game is good on any given day then he’ll be sure to be up there with the leaders in any event. Rahm has already shown this with a blistering start to 2023. Rahm added Masters, the American Express tournament and the Genesis Invitational to make it four PGA Tour wins in the first few weeks of 2023.

Rahm’s win at the Genesis Invitational, Rahm reached 10 PGA Tour wins. This was a proud moment for Rahm, since it meant he eclipsed the record of his idol, fellow Spaniard, Seve Ballesteros who won 9 PGA Tour events in his career.
