Jon Rahm will play in the US Open in Pebble Beach with the goal of paying off two old scores. The first is to leave behind the two missed cuts in a row in the PGA Championship at Bethpage and the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial.
The second, even more importantly, is to prove that the US Open is made for him and that the two consecutive missed cuts at Erin Hills and Shinnecock Hills, 2017 and 2018, are nothing more than just mere flukes.
And to reach those objectives, Jon will be arriving to Pebble Beach, iconic host to the US Open, which will be celebrating 100 years, fresher than ever.
The golfer from Barrika decided to rest and not even touch a club in ten days. It’s no trivial matter. In fact, it’s the first time since he went pro that he’s gone so long without playing or practicing. “I needed to rest. I wasn’t tired physically, but I did need to recharge my batteries and to come back excited again for golf. The first couple days, I didn’t miss it, but when I reached day seven or eight, I was itching to play again. I think it was a really good thing”, the Spanish golfer assured before the start of the US Open.
Jon will play the first two rounds alongside Australian golfer, Marc Leishman, and Northern Irish golfer, Rory McIlroy. He’ll play on Thursday in the morning and on Friday in the afternoon. According to the forecast, the weather is supposed to be good, not too hot and not too much wind.
