AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jon Rahm had warned Masters bettors that he would leave Augusta National this week if his wife, Kelley, went into labor. She was due to have the couple’s first child next weekend.

That is no longer an issue for the third-ranked golfer in the world, as Rahm announced Sunday via Instagram that the couple’s son, Kepa, was born Saturday morning.

“Without a doubt, the greatest day of my life,” Rahm said.
