Jon Rahm has his eyes on the prize for the Open de Francia, European Tour tournament that will be held next week on the Le Golf National course, the same course that will host the Ryder Cup.
A very important date on the calendar. It will be Jon’s debut in the European Tour this season and the first time he plays in a Rolex Series tournament. The golfer from Barrika’s main objective is to go into it as well-prepared as possible, shake off the slip-up in the US Open quickly and move forward.
There’s no better way to get prepared than golfing practice rounds. And that’s precisely what Rahm will do. The young Spanish golfer set off for San Diego, great place to train with amazing weather (22 degrees) and where the main Taylormade headquarters are located.
Jon will work with his brand’s technical team to review all aspects of his game. He wants to know exactly where his swing stands and compare it to previous performances. In other words, the most exhaustive analysis possible based on his stats. For example, how well he is currently shooting with each club. Basically like subjecting his game to laboratory tests to dissect all the different elements.
Once each and every aspect has been analyzed and with the results in hand, Jon will have better insight into what exactly has been going wrong in the past few tournaments, which is most likely what caused him to miss the cuts in the Memorial and the US Open.
He plans on flying directly from Los Angeles to Paris on Friday. He’ll arrive on Saturday afternoon and will be in the French capital all day on Sunday.
On Monday and Tuesday, back to work. He’s already made plans to meet with Eduardo Celles to go over his swing to figure out what is happening. With the data from Taylormade and Celles’s help, Rahm will have everything he needs to come back one hundred percent for the start of the Open de Francia on Thursday. That’s the plan. As you can see, it all goes back to hours and hours of practice.
