Rahm finished with another great second round to stay on top at the Phoenix Open


Jon Rahm it points to another weekend that is completely lost in the fight for a PGA tournament victory. There’s still plenty left to do Phoenix Openbut Rahm is temporarily second after his second round, although there are some players who have yet to complete it.

rahm Yes, he finished his round with a 66five under par 71 of the course, to be placed in a -8 on the whole, just behind the -10 by Scottie Scheffler and precedes -6 Jason’s day (there are two more holes) and wyndham clark (with three players). Of course, the Canadians Nick Taylor and Adam Hadwin (-5 after the first round) or the Americans Jim Hermann and Adam Schenk (both -5) or xander schauffele (-4) they still have to play their second round in full.

The Barrika native took advantage of the momentum of his birdie on the 17th hole of the first roundwhich ended a few minutes before the start of the second, to launch at a -5 during the day which puts him back in a prominent position for the weekend. In it, he will try to multiply the good sensations he is experiencing this year.

An eagle, four birdies and a bogey A Rahm signed in the second round, which, like the previous day, started with doubts. On his second hole of the round, the par four of the 11th, he was going to the water to sign bogey which compromised his fight for the top10. however, his reaction was brilliantwith a birdie on the par five of the 13th a birdie on the par three of the 16th and, in between, a stroke of genius ‘made in Jon Rahm’.

It was the par five of the 15th hole and Jon was going for his second shot into the bunker located next to the green. however, He came out of it with an amazing chunk to pierce from about twenty meters one of the punches of the tournament. With him, he not only added the eaglebut there’s also plenty of morale for the following holes: he’s the co-leader at -5 with Jason Day, Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor.

Rahm finished the first half of his round at -3 and maintained his positive momentum from hole 1. Two good putts on holes 2 (par four) and 3 (par five) put him in a prominent position in the fight for in leadership. however, that inertia has slowed since then with some loss of ‘feel’ in the long gamewith shots left many meters ahead to win the green.

However, where the long blow did not come, it appeared another piece of genius from Rahm. On the 7th hole, par three and the penultimate of his round, he went into the bunker to the left of the green. The exit in it is very far, with a long putt beyond thirteen meters for par. However, Jon pocketed it to save the hole and, with the last two pars after also suffering long games on 8 and 9, proving a -8 that leaves him in a good position for the weekend.

Rivals will dictate their final position, but everything points to Rahm being in at least a top10 position and there are options to continue to get weekend positions. After two victories and a seventh place this year, the Spanish player wants to fight for victory again.
