Jon Rahm is in Europe once again with an important mission underway: to win the Race to Dubai. It’s no easy task, there are some big-name competitors, not to mention Tommy Fleetwood’s advantage, number one in the order of merit, which is more than considerable, but it won’t be Jon who surrenders in the face of a challenge, in third place in the Race, only having played in two regular tournaments in the European Tour, an extraordinary feat.
Rahm is on the Old Continent again to play in the Italian Open, which starts this Thursday, a Rolex Series held at the Milano Golf Club the week before the Barrika native makes his debut in Spain to play in the Andalucía Valderrama Masters. Of course, Rahm is a candidate for everything, as he continues to play each week, and much more so in Europe. The stats are there. The two tournaments of the European Tour that he’s played in this season resulted in a tenth place in France and a victory in Ireland.
Rham will be a part of the star game of the tournament. He’ll play with Sergio García and Tommy Fleetwood the first two days. There you have it. The top three in the Race to Dubai head to head, face to face. Spectacular. He’ll play on Thursday in the afternoon session, and on Friday in the morning.
