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

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

Rahm also reviewed his beginnings in golf, after to try other sports, such as soccer, jai alai paddle tennis, canoeing, and kung fu. “Golf is different from other sports,” he says. “I have spoken with other athletes who play basketball, football or soccer. From a young age we all have a minimum talent to run and be able to do something. Golf makes you work from the beginning, and that is the difference. The individuality of the golf, the fact of competing against yourself, is what got me hooked on this 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 he answers about who is the better player, Messi or Cristiano. “Let’s see… Who do I think is the better player? 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 has worked to get where he is. (…) Messi is from another world. The only reason why I think there are people who don’t consider him the best in history is because he doesn’t He won the World Cup. That’s what I think, I didn’t see Maradona”.

And at 27 years old, Rahm has achieved success both on a sporting and personal level. “It is true that I have achieved a lot, but that does not mean that I am still young. Let’s see! One can be mature and young. Perhaps at a maturity level one can be a little older. But I am still 27 years old. And that is what many people sometimes forget when they see me. As I have played very well for many years, they think that I have been in this for a longer time”.

Since I’ve played very well for many years, they think I’ve been at this longer
