Who is Jon Rahm's wife, Kelley Cahilll?

Kelley and Jon first met when they were both students at Arizona State University, which Jon attended on a golf scholarship. Their relationship likely started in or around 2016, which is the first time that Kelley appears on Jon's Instagram page.

In an interview with Golf Digest, Jon said that he couldn't remember exactly when their relationship started, but said that they had first met at a Halloween party.

"We used to go to this place called Zendejas because she loved their margaritas and we both loved food, and it wasn't expensive," Jon explained. "But we have some disagreement about this — we don't know if that was our first official date, or if it was at a football game."

They graduated in 2016, but they continue to support their alma mater.

In addition to supporting Jon's athletic pursuits, Kelley was a college athlete in her own right. She was a member of the university's track and field team and threw javelin for the school.

Because she's excellent at javelin, Kelley is also a pretty solid quarterback, and Jon has shown off his wife's skills with the football on his Instagram page regularly.

Even as he excels on the course, though, Jon insists that his main priority is his family.

"I'm much more interested in raising a family and being a good husband and father than I am in golf," he told Golf Digest in 2019. "Don't get me wrong — I want to be the best golfer I can be. If I had a gun to my head and had to choose between having only one or the other, I wouldn't pick golf … I'd choose family every time."

What is Jon Rahm's net worth?

After he won the Masters, which comes with a pretty substantial purse attached to it, many wondered what Jon's net worth was. As one of the best golfers in the world, Jon's net worth is apparently somewhere in the neighborhood of $16 million. Given his relative youth, it seems likely that that worth will increase in the years to come.
