What would you do if your wife found out about the bet you made, and asked for a divorce? Jon Rahm’s response is surprising to say the least.

Jon Rahm Wouldn’t Risk Marital Bliss on a Masters Bet With an Ex-NFL Quarterback

Jon Rahm has shown he can hold his own against the top golfers in the world, but he has opted to avoid some conflicts.

Rahm, whose accomplishments include winning the 2021 U.S. Open and topping the money list with more than $7.7 million last season, naturally believes that sustaining a good marriage is more important than bragging rights over a former NFL quarterback.

Early in the 2021-22 PGA Tour season, Jon Rahm is taking it easy.

When the official season finished last autumn, Jon Rahm, as is his custom, withdrew from the PGA Tour in favor of taking some time off. After skipping the first several months of the season, Rahm returned in January with his world No. 1 ranking intact, and he started the year with a runner-up finish at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, thanks to a phenomenal 33-under-par total.

Rahm finished in the top ten in two of his following three events before finishing in a tie for 17th place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. That was practice for The Players Championship, when he tied for 55th, his lowest result in almost nine months.

As the world’s best players begin to focus on The Masters Tournament, which begins on April 7 at Augusta National, Rahm maintains his lead over Collin Morikawa and Victor Hovland.

Jon Rahm and Brock Osweiler are buds on the golf course.

Jon Rahm, a 27-year-old PGA Tour standout, is a native of Spain who attended Arizona State University before going pro in 2016. Rahm and his wife Kelley settled in Scottsdale and made Silverleaf Country Club their home course after falling in love with the area.

Former NFL quarterback Brock Osweiler, who played football at Arizona State soon before Rahm’s arrival, is one of the other players you’re likely to encounter at Silverleaf. In 2011, Osweiler passed for 4,036 yards for ASU, paving the way for a seven-year pro career with the Denver Broncos. As a starter, he had a 15-15 record before he retired in 2018.

On the Subpar podcast, Osweiler reminisced about his experiences on the golf field, where Rahm has served as both a comrade and a foe.

A wager on The Masters would be a no-no for the PGA Tour pro.

Brock Osweiler humbly claims that he prefers to play with Jon Rahm rather than against him because he needs assistance. On sometimes, though, it’s just the two of them slugging it out on the course. Even casual golfers know that when there’s a prize on the line, the game becomes a bit more intriguing.

For professional athletes, this may seem a little weird. According to Spotrac.com, Osweiler’s total career income is more over $41 million. In the meanwhile, Rahm has amassed over $30 million in tournament prize money, in addition to the typical hefty endorsement agreements.  

On the podcast, Osweiler added, “There was a point when I wanted a head-to-head bet with him.” “So, we’re sitting on the first tee, and he says, ‘Well, what do you want to play for?’” And I’m thinking, ‘You don’t need money,’” I say.

Osweiler, who is 31 years old, came up with a solution.

“If I beat you today, I get to carry your bag in the Par-3 Contest at Augusta,” Osweiler said, referring to one of the Masters’ pre-event traditions.

However, the plan did not work out. Rahm’s wife is the one person he can trust with that duty.

“‘Listen, I’d love to do that, but Kelley would kill me,’ he joked. Osweiler remembered, “Kelley’s on the bag.”
