Jon Rahm says foot infection 'a concern' ahead of U.S. Open - ESPN

PINEHURST, N.C. — Jon Rahm walked into the U.S. Open news conference room Tuesday with a golf shoe on his right foot, a flip-flop on his left foot, complete with a toe separator.

The two-time major winner said the foot injury, which he described as an infection, that caused him to withdraw from last week's LIV Golf tournament in Houston is «a concern» as he prepares for the third major championship of the year.

After finishing inside the top 10 and winning the Masters in 2023 before signing with LIV, Rahm is now ranked eighth in the world. At Augusta this year, he finished tied for 45th while he missed
