Jon Rahm will add yet another top ten to the list, now six in a row. The golfer from Barrika finished in tenth place in the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a total score of ten under par, after shooting a 67, 68, 70 and 69.
Four rounds under par at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona, another demonstration of the unwavering consistency in his game.
Jon wasn’t as solid as he has been in other tournaments, Farmers or Desert Classic, for example, most likely due to the exhaustion brought on after three consecutive weeks of competition. It’s not easy to stay sharp the whole time, even more difficult when fighting for the win on Sunday, just as he did in the past two tournaments.
In any event, he managed to stay at the top of the rankings each and every day, close to the leaders, far from the victory, but close enough to have a shot at it in case everything were to fall into place, and he’d be able to fight for the win.
As we mentioned before, the most important factor is the degree of consistency he’s been able to maintain in his game. He hasn’t placed lower than the top ten since the final event in the Race to Dubai last November, and that hot streak includes his victory in the Hero World Challenge. Jon will take a well-deserved break this week, and he’ll back at it in two in the Genesis Open in Los Angeles, just before the WGC Mexico Championship, the first big event of the year.
