Rahm’s LIV Golf Ryder Cup point proven again by Bryson DeChambeau’s U.S. Open win

Jon Rahm has been vocal in his support for LIV Golfers to be included in the Ryder Cup, with Bryson DeChambeau’s U.S. Open win further proving his point

Jon Rahm is hoping he has a Ryder Cup future (

Jon Rahm’s calls to include LIV Golf players in next year’s Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black has been given an undoubtable boost following Bryson DeChambeau’s victory at the US Open.

Rahm, who became arguably LIV’s biggest signing at the end of 2023 in a deal reportedly worth £450 million, threw his future elsewhere into jeopardy , particularly at the Ryder Cup, where he has proven to be been a key player for Team Europe in recent years.

After his move to the Saudi-backed circuit, Rahm was promptly banned from the PGA Tour, but his playing rights in Europe on the DP World Tour are a slightly more complex

While not banned by the European circuit, Rahm was fined and suspended for competing in LIV events when tournaments were also being held on the DP World Tour. Many of the original LIV members had chosen to resign their memberships due to the increasing fines, including the likes of Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia.

This in tuRn made them ineligible to compete on the European Ryder Cup setup. For now, Rahm remains both a DP World Tour player and eligible to represent Luke Donald’s team next autumn, but regardless of the politics, the Spaniard believes players’ loyalties to LIV should not impact their ability to play in the Ryder Cup.

“I hope sooner than later there’s some resolution to where there’s a way for the players here to earn the events like you can pretty much everywhere else and there’s a clear pathway,” Rahm expressed at LIV Nashville. I know LIV is a bit of a different league, but the talent is there, and that’s in my mind undeniable, so there should be a pathway for all of us to be able to earn certain points or a way into majors, Ryder Cup and so on.”
