The Concession course, in Florida, will make its debut this week in a professional tournament of the highest caliber. It’s the WGC Workday Championship, the first world championship of the season.
The event should have been held at the Club de Golf Chapultepec, in Mexico City, but the impact of the pandemic in Mexico was the reason for the change in headquarters.
The Concession was prepared in record time, but there were no big issues, seeing as how it’s almost always in immaculate condition. It’s a new course for almost everyone. Jon Rahm is one of the few who have played in a high-level championship there. It was the NCAA Final in 2015, which concluded with Bryson DeChambeau as tournament champion.
Rahm will, once again, attempt to extinguish the curse cast upon Spanish golf during these events. A Spanish golfer has never won any of these tournaments, ever since the start in 1999.
Keep in mind that Jon finished this same tournament last year in third place, although it was in Mexico, on a course which has little or nothing to do with the course that will take the spotlight this week.
