Jon Rahm announced last week at the PGA Championship that he and longtime girlfriend Kelley Cahill were engaged to be married earlier this summer.
Cahill is from Oregon and attended the Arizona State University where she met Rahm. While she was there she competed in javelin throwing as well as boxing and tennis.
Rahm told reporters at Bellerive about his nerves — or lack thereof —when proposing as well as the input he had on the ring he would use to ask for her hand.
“In my case, I was 100 percent sure she was going to say yes. I wasn’t nervous much the only worry I had was to make the day as perfect as possible. I got lucky that it turned out pretty perfect,” Rahm said. “I designed (the ring.) Brian Stuard’s wife is a jeweler and is a really good friend of ours. So Kelley was talking to her. She knew what Kelley wanted, but I had my own ideas. Basically, with her help, I designed the ring. She wanted to pick the diamond, but I knew what I wanted. I designed what’s around the ring. It’s supposed to look like a crown and an engraving inside. I had a big part in it. It wasn’t exactly what she wanted, but she loves it. It’s a little more personal like that.”
