(Reuters) – Former champion Jon Rahm has withdrawn from this week’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina due to a painful foot injury that also forced him out of last week’s LIV Golf event, the Spaniard said on Tuesday.

“After consulting with numerous doctors and my team, I have decided it is best for my long term health, to withdraw from this week’s U.S. Open Championship,” Rahm, who won his first major at the 2021 U.S. Open, wrote on social media.
