“He doesn’t get it”: Jon Rahm criticized for comments about PGA Tour

Golf Channel analysts left seething after Jon Rahm suggested he still considers himself a PGA Tour player.

Jon Rahm’s recent remarks have ignited a firestorm of controversy within golfing circles, as he navigates the PGA Tour-LIV Golf fracture.

Despite his defection to LIV Golf, Rahm adamantly asserts his continued support for the PGA Tour, claiming, “I’m still a PGA Tour member, whether suspended or not. I still want to support the PGA Tour.” This declaration, made ahead of the PGA Championship, has left pundits and fans divided.

Golf Channel analyst Aaron Oberholser expressed frustration, suggesting Rahm lacks understanding of the situation. Oberholser’s criticism reflects the broader sentiment among PGA Tour loyalists, who feel Rahm’s allegiance should lie solely with the Tour.

“He doesn’t get it. To this day, he doesn’t get it. This is a guy who wanted a position or wanted to be heard, from what I understand,” Oberholser said.

“Either a board position, policy board, he wanted to be heard on this whole thing before he went to LIV. And I feel like he wasn’t as heard as much as he probably should’ve been, and now, I’m glad he wasn’t in that position because he doesn’t get it.

Nonetheless, Rahm remains undeterred as he prepares to compete in the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club. Paired with Rickie Fowler and Cameron Young for the opening rounds.
