Jon Rahm has confirmed he has absolutely no interest in replacing Rory McIlroy on the PGA Tour policy board following the Northern Irishman's shock resignation.
Rahm, who turned 29 last week, was speaking to the media ahead of his title defence at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai this week, where he bids to win the season-ending tournament for a record fourth time since 2017.
The World No.3 was pressed by reporters if he had any interest to take McIlroy's seat at the PGA Tour table.
But Rahm was quick to shut that down.
"Oh, you won't see me there. Absolutely no chance. I've been asked a couple times if I have any interest, and I'm not going to spend, I don't know how many meetings they have, but they are six, seven, hour plus long. I'm not -- I'm not here for that.
"As regards to Rory, he's obviously been put in a situation where a lot has been expected of him, and I don't know the exact reason why he left the board. But I certainly wouldn't blame somebody like him to just want to focus a bit more on his game and his family and enjoy the bit of time he's truly earned.
"Again, it's a big commitment for somebody to be part of it."
Rahm might not know the exact reason why the four-time major champoion decided to step down, but here at GolfMagic we have put a feature together on five reasons why McIlroy decided to walk out of the PGA Tour policy board.
One reporter then further quizzed Rahm on the subject, asking him if he was surprised at all by McIlroy's resignation.
Rahm responded sternly:
"I'm not sure that really matters if I was surprised or not. Did I expect it? Not really. But again, I can understand why somebody would do, especially with everything that's involved."
