Jon Rahm is enjoying his first major championship.
Rahm claimed his first major on Sunday, winning the US Open at Torrey Pines thanks to a birdie-birdie finish on the final two holes of the tournament, outlasting one of the strongest fields in all of golf.
For Rahm, it was a monumental occasion. Not only was it the first major victory of his career, but it came on his first Father’s Day as a dad.
So it’s no surprise that Rahm was eager to celebrate. After the formalities of photoshoots and kissing the trophy were over, it appears that Rahm did just that.
In a video shared on social media, Rahm chugged something out of the US Open trophy and blasted a glow-in-the-dark golf ball into oblivion, all while “We Are the Champions” by Queen played in the background.
Bask in the glory, Jon.
Rahm’s win at the US Open capped off what will go down as one of the wildest stretches in the history of golf.
In early June, officials pulled Rahm off the course at the Memorial Tournament after playing the round of his life and informed him that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
Despite holding a six-stroke lead on the field heading into the final round, Rahm had to withdraw from the tournament. He gave up what was almost certainly going to be the sixth win of his career on the PGA Tour and the $1.6 million in prize money that would have come with it.
Just two weeks later, after a string of negative tests allowed him to re-enter the field at the US Open, Rahm started up right where he left off, outpacing the field at Torrey Pines to become a major champion.
