Who Is Jon Rahm’s Wife?

Jon Rahm has been arguably the best player in the world throughout 2018 - 2021, with the Spaniard finishing 2021 as the world number one. In that year, he claimed his first Major title at the US Open. He and his wife also had success off the course, welcoming their first child, Kepa, into the world. Having married Kelley Cahill in 2019, the pair are seen often at events. Find out more about her here.

So how did the couple meet? Well, both attended Arizona State University, with Kelley competing on the track & field team as a javelin thrower under the school nickname of the Sun Devils. She was also apparently a very capable tennis player, with Tennis Recruiting Network, a website that looks at junior tennis, listing her as a two-star recruit after playing at high school in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Both Jon and Kelley are fiercely competitive and on one occasion the pair played a tennis match against one another. Speaking about the match, she said “he’s killing forehands … crosscourt zingers, and I’m thinking, 'This can’t be right'. He was so good. I was so upset. I was actually mad for a day or two... We have not set foot on a tennis court since.”

After graduating, they lived together for two years before tying the knot in December 2019, at a ceremony in Bilbao, Spain, near Rahm's hometown of Barrika.

In an interview with GOLF.com, Rahm admitted that he had designed his future bride’s wedding ring. “So, [golfer] Brian Stuard’s fiancée or wife is a jeweller and is a really good friend of ours. So Kelley was talking to her. She knew what Kelley wanted, but I had my own ideas. Basically, with her help, I designed the ring.

“She wanted to pick the diamond, but I knew what I wanted. I designed what’s around the ring. It’s supposed to look like a crown and had an engraving inside. I had a big part in it. It wasn’t exactly what she wanted, but she loves it. It’s a little more personal like that."

Cahill has regularly been seen supporting Rahm on the PGA and DP World Tours, with the American in attendance for the Spaniard's victories at the US Open and Race to Dubai finale.

After being married since 2019, the pair announced in November 2020 that they were expecting their first child. The due date for the child was actually supposed to clash with the Masters, with Rahm stating that: “If anybody’s thinking of a betting on me on the Masters, maybe think about it twice because there’s a chance I have to just turn around and leave that week,”

Thankfully for Jon, his son, Kepa, was born a week before the Masters, meaning he could play in the tournament. In an Instagram post, Rahm said "Kepa Cahill Rahm, was born 4/3/21 at 12:15am. Momma Kelley is doing great and recovering. Kepa is also in great health. He is 7.2 lb and 20.5inch, big boy from the Basque Country. Without a doubt the greatest day of my life!" 

In August 2022 they welcomed their second child into the world as well, Eneko Cahill Rahm.
