Jon Rahm’s difficult year

Jon Rahm’s difficult year

With a +1 to -11, in no man’s land (15th), Jon Rahm concluded the Tour Championship on Sunday, the PGA final. The performance of the Biscayen, prolific Thursday and Friday, erratic Saturday and the last day, was a bit like his season: an accumulation of sensations difficult to gauge.

In a pinch, we can say that this is his most low-key season on the North American circuit since 17/18. In his second full year of cards, he won one tournament and placed in the top 10 in four others. In 16/17, his numbers were one win and 11 top-10s; 18/19, one and 12; on 20/19, two and eight; in 20/21, one (the US Open) and 15. On the other hand, he maintained the winning streak, and it’s been six consecutive years with at least one title, in this case the Mexican Open.

But in the bigs he has another must, and that’s the first time since 2017 that he failed to finish in the top ten in any of them (last year c was in the four). When it looked like he could have opened the box in that aspect, he stopped. He is also not in the fight for the number one ranking, which he has held for so long, when he has not besieged. That said, bitter taste.

According to the statistics, he is still part of the absolute elite of the start, a section he led with 1,025 strokes won. His approach to the green (from 8º to 38º) and his short game suffered a lot.or (from 42º to 143º). Kicking he lived through dark days, but overall he finished among the top 30 on the circuit (28th). The good news: he’s still a shot-taking machine (7th in scoring) and a top golfer from tee to green (12th).

Personally Mercy experienced the arrival of her second son, Eneko, and was a quiet voice in the clash between LIV and PGA and DP World Tour. His most candid statements about this came at the British Open, when he lamented the loss of players like Sergio García to the Ryder, whose standings could be complicated next season due to the new signings of big players. of the PGA to play at least 20 tournaments per course. He will return to Europe in the fall. He will be released at the PGA European Championship in Wentworth (September 8-11) and the Spanish Open (October 6-9) in Madrid.
