Jon Rahm has confirmed he will not be homeschooling his children when they are old enough to go to school, so he therefore wants to spend as much time with them as possible while they are babies when he is travelling on the PGA Tour.
Rahm, who starts a warm 10/1 betting favourite for The Masters this week, has a one-year-old son Kepa with wife Kelley Cahill and the couple are expecting their second baby this summer.

It is often a difficult decision for PGA Tour players as to whether they homeschool their children while they are building a career on the road, often moving from hotel to hotel.
But Rahm and his wife Kelley have made a decision, and he opened up more about the situation in his Tuesday press conference ahead of The Masters.
"They travel with me pretty much everywhere because we decided we're not going to home school our kids," said Rahm.
"So once Kepa is old enough to go to school, I won't see him. So for now, as much as they can travel with me, they will be coming.

"Life changes a little bit when you're responsible for somebody's life. I think that for somebody in my situation, for a sport as selfish as golf, it's great to have somebody as supportive as Kelley. She takes on a lot of the duties with Kepa so I can go practice, but I still have to do my bit, obviously.
"It just changes life afterwards. What I thought was important isn't important anymore. I have no feeling of going out after I finish practicing, dinner outside or, you know, restaurant dinners or going out in any sense of the way. No. I want to stay home and go to sleep because you know that baby can wake up at any point at night.
"On the other hand, he's given me a lot more than I've given him. The sense of presence and love I feel when I'm with him is so unique, right? It's easy to switch from golf to off golf, right? When I get home, I'm dad. That's all he cares about, and that's all he should care about, and that's what we do. He helps me in a lot of ways get away from the game as well.
"It's really cool. It's really cool to see him develop, to see him grow. He just turned a year old on Sunday, and it's been fun. I can't wait to see what comes in the near future."
I was homeschooled and I turned out weird— Paige Spiranac (@PaigeSpiranac) April 5, 2022
Off the back of hearing Rahm's comments in his press conference, social media sensation Paige Spiranac could not help herself when she tweeted: "I was homeschooled and I turned out weird."
One golf fan replied to Paige: "Definition of weird is all in interpretation. You are fine. We are all weird in our own ways."
