Jon Rahm continues to be on the rise in 2020. He’s consistently getting good scores wherever he plays. His most recent past three performances were second place in the Farmers Insurance Open, ninth in the Waste Management Phoenix Open and twelfth in the Genesis Invitational.
In short, he’s finished out the the entire western coast in the US with three top 20s, which is just a glimpse of the Basque golfer’s extraordinary capability to get good results.
In fact, there are stats that speak to his solid performance in these past three tournaments which are quite astounding. Of the past 31 tournaments that Jon has played around the world, more than one full calendar year, he’s finished among the top 20 on 26 different occasions. If we take a closer look, the rule of three says that in almost 85 percent of the tournaments that he plays, Jon will make it to Sunday with options to win.
It happened again in this stretch of the tour through California and Arizona. In the Farmers, he went out on Sunday as the leader, and both in the Phoenix and in the Riviera this past Sunday, he made it to the end with possibilities to win.
In fact, in the Genesis Invitational, he was very close to causing an upset in the final round. He demonstrated a very high caliber of play right off the tee, and he was only missing a bit more finesse with the irons in order to create a few more options for birdies.
In any event, his track record continues to be spectacular. He’s maintained his position as Number 3 in the world, with the possibility of moving up to Number 1. This week, he’ll have another opportunity in the first big tournament of the year. He’ll play in the WGC Mexico at the Club de Golf Chapultepec, where Rahm finished in second place three years ago, just behind Dustin Johnson.
