Jon Rahm explains why he withdrew from The American Express
LA QUINTA, Calif. - Jon Rahm, this week's most popular and senior player, retired from American Express on Monday without telling PGA Tour officials a reason.
On Tuesday at PGA West, Rahms manager Jeff Koski said the world number 2 pinched a muscle while practicing and decided to pull out of this week's stop, but added that he was feeling better. Koski said Rahm is still planning to attend the Farmers Insurance Open next week.

“The truth is, I injured myself in the gym on Friday. I'm taking my time off now and I'm trying to be smart. I could play now, but I don't want to make it worse, ”Rahm said to Colt Knost on SiriusXM Radio.
Rahm started his year two weeks ago at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, where he finished seventh, and finished last year with two top 10 finishes (T-7 in the Masters and T-2 in the Zozo Championship).
Rahm was replaced in the field by Brandon Hagy.
