It’s finally time for the Open. Jon Rahm is currently in Kent, England, to compete in the fourth and last Major of the year, which he’ll go into as number two in the world, and after an incredible performance in the Scottish Open, finishing with yet another top 10 in an event in the Rolex Series.
The golfer from Barrika is now back to where it all started, seeing as how it was precisely at Royal St. George’s where Rahm had his first encounter with a links. It was in 2009 when he played in the British Boys, in which he was eliminated in the round of 16, and the best Spanish golfer in the competition. It brings back very good memories, and good vibes, just hours away from playing in a Major for the first time with the peace of mind of having one win in an Open already under his belt.
Rahm will take on the ambitious challenge of being one of the few golfers to win the US Open and the British Open in the same year. He’s aware that he’ll be in an incredibly demanding environment, in which he will have to adapt to the playing conditions if he wants to take home the Claret Jug. Conscious of the task at hand, and with the constant memory of Seve on his mind, since he wouldn’t have it any other way when it comes to an Open, Jon has a strong conviction that it’s going to be a special week. Hopefully, it will be.
