Adam Hayes is currently on the bag for Jon Rahm and has been for his entire pro career so far

Who Is Jon Rahm’s Caddie?

One of the best players in the world, Jon Rahm is set to make his Ryder Cup debut later this month after qualifying in the eight automatic spots for the European team. In the 2018 season he has had two wins, at the Career Builder Challenge along with the Open de Espana, to book his place in Paris. Given the past success of pairing Spaniards together, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him paired with Sergio Garcia either.

But who actually caddies for the fiery Spaniard? We take a look.

Who Is Jon Rahm’s Caddie?

Adam Hayes became Jon Rahm’s caddie when he turned pro in June 2016.

The pair got their first victory at the Farmers Insurance Open in 2017 and they have won five tournaments together in total.

Hayes studied at Brevard Community College and University of Central Florida and is considered to be one of the most respected caddies on the PGA Tour.

He began his caddying career in 2000 on the LGPA Tour and four years later he made the transition to the PGA Tour.

Hayes has previous experience of caddying for a number of PGA Tour players including current world number 20 Webb Simpson and 2013 USPGA Championship winner Jason Dufner.

He has also been on the bag of Russell Henley, Vaughan Taylor and Ben Crane

His most memorable victory that he has recorded with a pro to date was at the 2010 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open held in Las Vegas.

Hayes caddied for Jonathan Byrd, who won the tournament with a hole in one during the playoff.

Hayes was recorded as the eighth highest-earning caddie according to Forbes by the end of 2017 receiving a reported $520,000.

Rahm has been as high as 2nd in the world within his first two years as a pro and is in line for his Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National in September 2018.
