Golf: Rahm 'honoured and humbled' to be world's best golfer

Jon Rahm says he's 'honoured' to be world number one and wants to hold on to top spot in the PGA Tour. Rahm: "It's an honour. It's a goal, it's something I set out to accomplish a long time ago and it's a true honour and it's humbling to be here, knowing how hard I've worked to get to this point. I'll be the first Spaniard since Seve [Ballesteros], knowing how some of the greatest golfers in history from Spain and Europe haven't been able to get here. So it's unique. Even my close friend, Phil [Mickelson], a five-time major champion, wasn't able to get there. It is true that some of them played Tiger [Woods] at the time and obviously nobody's going to take that from him, but still doesn't take away from what I've done myself. Now, at the same time, getting here, it's great. I played great golf the last four years, but I can only help but think I can keep playing that good or better to hopefully stay here for a long time. It's kind of what I've set out to be in that sense. It's not only to get here, but to stay here, hopefully for a long time. That's the goal for a lot of us, trying to be consistently good at playing golf throughout our career and hopefully win as much as possible when we play."
