Jon Rahm is not taking any rest after his victory in teachers, despite how tempting it may be.
The newly ranked world No. 1 told reporters on Wednesday that he was exhausted after a «demanding week» at Augusta National. However, he does not withdraw from the RBC heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina this week and for good reason.
«It crossed my mind,» Rahm said. «It crossed my mind, but I made a commitment at the beginning of the year and I want to keep that commitment.»

«Me too, talking to [my wife], I put myself in the place not only of the spectators but also of the children. If I were one of the kids, I’d like to see the recent Masters champion play good or bad, I just want to be there.»
But Rahm made it clear that he’s not just showing up, he’s committed to winning.

«I can promise you that every time I enter a tournament, it will be to win,» he added. «It may feel better or worse, but I intend to do everything I can to win.»
