Jon Rahm will play in the BMW Championship starting this Thursday, third tournament of the playoffs in the FedEx Cup. Rahm’s spectacular results, in the regular season as well as the two first tournaments of the playoffs, are what have allowed him to reach this point in the first complete year in the PGA Tour of his career, with the grande finale in Atlanta guaranteed. A luxury of which few are able to enjoy.
That being said, if there’s something the golfer from Barrika is far from lacking, it’s ambition, and he didn’t make it all the way to the third playoff of the FedEx to settle for just being in the Tour Championship. Far from it. Jon’s goal is to maintain fifth place where he’s at now in the rankings, or to place even higher, seeing as how the top five in Atlanta only depend on their own performance to win the FedEx.
Jon’s game is in perfect condition to take on the challenge. He’s one of the five best golfers who boasts two top tens in the first two playoffs. He’s on this exclusive list with Justin Rose, Paul Casey, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson. It’s evident that Rahm will go into the tournament at a good point in his career on the the Conway Farms course in Illinois, a course he previously played in 2015, victory by Jason Day in 2013, when Zach Johnson won.
Rahm will compete in the first two rounds again with Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler.
