MADRID (AP) — Jon Rahm has quickly realized things have changed for him in Spain.

Rahm says it took “30 seconds from the time I arrived at the hotel and went for a walk before someone recognized me.” He is making his first visit to Spain in nearly two years and finally feeling up close the impact of his sporting deeds. This weekend he will try to defend his Spanish Open title.
