Jon Rahm will play in the tenth Major of his career this Thursday. It’s the PGA Championship on the Bellerive Country Club course in St. Louis, Missouri.
A milestone that speaks to the extraordinary impact the golfer from Barrika has had in the world of golf since he went PRO. It’s incredible that he’s only been a professional for less than two years now, and has already accumulated an astounding total of ten ‘majors’.
Jon will arrive to Bellerive with his game in pristine condition. He continues to hit the ball really well, and the bad stats on the putt at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational haven’t left a trace, actually quite the contrary. Rahm is convinced that he was putting well, but it was just one of those weeks in which the ball didn’t want to land in the hole.
Thus, there’s not many changes to be made. The course is damp and long due to the last rainfall, which means he’ll need an aggressive strategy, a style of play in which Jon finds himself truly in his element.
Rahm will play in the first two rounds with Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth, an ideal match to rev up the engines for the Ryder Cup, a goal that is still quite far off in the Spanish golfer’s mind. First thing is to play in the PGA with the same objective that he set out for in the beginning of the year for all the ‘majors’: make it to Sunday with the possibility to win.’
