But Rahm would also reach the top, and was first in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 60 consecutive weeks, said Celebrity Net Worth, and won the Ben Hogan Award twice (2015 and 2016) and the Mark H. McCormack Medal (2015). Other major wins include the CareerBuilder Challenge (2018, per PGA Tour), the Spanish Open (2018 and 2019, per The Golf Channel), the Memorial Tournament (2020; again, PGA Tour) and the BMW Championship (2020).

Since going pro, Rahm earned more than $1 million each year on the PGA Tour, reported the South Hampton Golf Club, who added that the golfer comes in fifth compared to players like Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka

Will Rahm surpass that legacy one day? Rahm commented about comparisons to his idol when talking to the The Guardian in 2019: “I’ve said it many times, as a Spanish player, as a Spaniard, any time you have the chance to put your name on a list where there’s only one name and that name is Seve, it’s pretty impactful.”
