Jon Rahm resigns from the US Open | Sports XEU

Spaniard Jon Rahm announced on Tuesday his resignation from the US Open due to a foot injury that had already forced him to withdraw from the LIV Championship in Houston last weekend.

“After consulting with several doctors and my team, I have decided that it is best for my long-term health to withdraw from the US Open this week,” Rahm wrote on his “X” account.

“To say I am disappointed is an understatement. I wish everyone involved the best of luck. I would like to thank all the USGA staff, volunteers and Pinehurst community for organizing what I am sure will be an amazing tournament. I look forward to getting back to work soon,” he added. maybe”.

Rahm announced his retirement hours after his appearance at a press conference at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in North Carolina (USA), where the US Open will be held from June 13 to 16.

“It's worrying. It's getting better, it's getting better, but I'm definitely still in pain. We're trying to understand what happened because I think it's probably a skin issue. If I had to show you that, it's at the bottom between My little finger and the next finger.

“I don't know what happened, but it became infected. I was in a lot of pain. In the round last Saturday, in the morning, I had an injection to numb the area. It was going to last the whole round, but by the second hole I was already in pain,” the Spaniard continued.

“The infection was the worrying part, it's under control now, but it's still swollen and I'm in pain. There's a reason I came here in shoes and flip-flops, I'm trying to keep the area dry until it heals.” As quickly as possible, I do what I do. “I can. The human body has its own rhythms.”
