Jon Rahm did not make the cut in the PGA Tour Charles Schwab Challenge, a tournament which served as a warm-up so to speak, or reinitiation of competition, held at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
The golfer from Barrika missing a cut is big news, seeing as how he does not usually meddle in these types of affairs. In fact, the last time he didn’t play over the weekend was, precisely, last year in this same tournament.
Apart from curses and ‘cheap’ superstitions (Jon really likes this tournament), the explanation for the bad week can only be found on the greens. You could say that his putt got stuck in Phase Zero, and did not accompany him to Texas.
The stats are quite significant. He didn’t make a birdie putt from more than a meter and a half away in the first two rounds, and it’s truly difficult to progress in a place where, on top of it, especially during the first two days, players were handing in pretty low cards.
Be that as it may, it is clear to Jon that it’s time to move on from what happened in the Charles Schwab, and to focus on the RBC Heritage, taking place this week at Hilton Head. It will be his first time playing in this tournament, and will be interesting to see how things unfold for the Spanish golfer. He has also confirmed his participation in the Travelers Championship.
