It’s coming to the end of an epic, legendary run for Jon Rahm this season in the PGA Tour, in which he won his first Major, and solidified his spot at the top of the world rankings.
The last stop of the season in the US will be at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia for the Tour Championship. And Jon is prepared for battle.
This Sunday, we’ll find out who the winner of the FedEx Cup will be, and of the grand prize, which is 15 million dollars. The golfer from Barrika, Spain, will go into the tournament in fourth place, four shots from the leader, Patrick Cantlay. A significant difference, but not impossible. In Rahm’s own words, it’s about “gaining one shot per day, although in golf, an advantage of four shots could be relatively short-lasting”. Cantlay will go into the tournament on cloud nine after his victory in the BMW Championship against Bryson DeChambeau.
However, it’s a notoriously more complicated course than the previous two events, which means that a final score of -27 like we saw last week in Maryland is not likely. In that sense, Rahm is conscious of the fact that in order to win, it’s important to execute on the tee shots, and in that aspect of the game, the Spanish golfer is top notch. Confidence is high, and he made it known to the media in the press release prior to the event.
Rahm will play this Thursday in the second-to-last game with Bryson DeChambeau, just ahead of the stellar duo, Finau and Cantlay. After many months of competition, the PGA Tour will host its final event until further notice, and John Rahm will be there in search of the golden seal to a sensational season, with the first FedEx Cup for Spanish golf.
