Jon Rahm and his wife have decided to not homeschool their children during the school year.

Rahm is always on the road as a professional golfer so this was definitely a tough decision no matter what.

As Dan Rapaport of GolfDigest says, you can either take the kids on the road the entire time or put them in a normal school and not see them for a good chunk of the year.

This is a different approach than some other golfers take. For example, Matt Kuchar takes his two sons on the road during events as he and his wife decided to home school them.

They even have a teacher who goes with them when their travel takes them outside the country.

Kuchar also confirmed that his sons do all of their work on the road before they go sightseeing.

"It's such an education traveling," Kuchar said. "Somebody once told me, 'Don't let school interfere with a child's education.' And I certainly agree with it, especially at their age. Now the kids get the best of it. We travel. We have a teacher travel with us so they do proper academic studies. They're doing their work on the road and then going out and seeing things."

Rahm has decided on a different approach for his kids and it's one that will likely work out just fine.
