Rahm: “If I had lived in Barrika, I would have applied to cast Game of Thrones”

Jon Rahm talks about golf and many other aspects of his life off the course in a personal interview with ‘Vanity Fair’. The ‘Game of Thrones’ golfer settled in Arizona, although he grew up in Barrika, land of cliffs and wild beaches, where your favorite series was filmed. “I saw ‘Game of Thrones’ twice. I remember when there was an advert for people who spoke English. I was there and I thought, ‘If I lived here, I would introduce myself’ .

Rahm also reviewed his early days in golf, after try other sports, such as football, jai alai paddle tennis, canoeing and kung fu. “Golf is different from other sports,” he says. “I’ve spoken with other athletes who play basketball, soccer or football. From a very young age, we all have a minimum of talent to run and be able to do something. Golf makes you work from the beginning, and that’s the difference. The individuality of golf, the fact of competing against yourself, that’s what got me hooked on the sport since I was little.”

The golfer also talked about football, another of his hobbies. In fact, he dreamed of being a footballer before discovering golf. And answer who is the better player, Messi or Cristiano. “Let’s see… Who is the best player in my opinion? Messi. But Messi doesn’t talk much about his process. Cristiano, on the other hand, has been much more vocal. I admire Cristiano a lot for his dedication to the sport, arriving earlier to train… That’s what I admire, what he worked to get where he is.(…) Messi is from another world. The only reason I think there are people who don’t consider him the best in history, it’s because he didn’t win the World Cup That’s what I think, I didn’t saw Maradona”.

And at 27, Rahm has achieved success both sportingly and personally. “It is true that I have achieved a lot, but that does not mean that I am still young. Let’s see! You can be mature and young. Maybe at the level of maturity you can be a little more old. But I’m still 27. And that’s what a lot of people sometimes forget when they see me. Because I’ve been playing very well for many years, they think I’ve been around longer.”
