Rahm: “There were 53 very good holes and the last 19 bad ones, that’s the issue"


“There were 53 very good holes and the last 19 bad”. so checked Jon Rahm In a few words, his performance on US Open at The Country Club. He says about 19 holes because it includes the entire final round and the final hole of the third, which deprived him of the single lead when he took the lead by a stroke and closed off Saturday with a painful double bogey.

“It hurts because of how much I played all week. On this last lap things didn’t go away from the start. I stayed there but I didn’t feel comfortable with any part of the game and it showed. As usual, I fought until the end but things did not work out ”, said Rahm in a mixed zone with the Spanish special envoys in Boston.

“I’m having a hard time thinking right now, I’m annoyed, how good everything is for me, a course I like, a course I’m pretty comfortable playing. This is what it is,” he added, and reiterated that “there are 53 hole very good, the next 19 bad themes, plus six, that’s the theme.Defending a tournament is hard and a ‘big’ one is more, very complicated, it happens every thirty years and very few the winner ”, said Jon.

“It’s hard to play golf like that. There was something very good, for example I was more comfortable with vegetables, and for the rest of the year it was important. I did a very good thing with the trajectory of the ball, playing air. And I struggled, in the first three days I made as many putts as I needed, this is probably what was missing in this last round. Hitting a pair of putts changes drastically. This Sunday, the rest is not even close ”, added the Basque.

“Now thinking about going home, the truth is, then come the Pro am in Ireland, the Scottish Open and the Open in Saint Andrews, there is no better tournament to win than a British in Saint Andrews, and of course I have my mind on it ”, Biscayan said.

The final statement from the defending champion was for the field and the champion Fitzpatrick. “It is the best preparation of the field in a US Open, the fairest, a good event, hopefully we can return in the future. On how badly I played this Sunday and I +4 and it could have been even worse. Fitzpatrick, along with Nicklaus, was the only winner of a US Amateur and a US Open on the same course, he played like a great champion, his first victory on the PGA Tour and in a ‘major’. It holds the field tightly. He is very talented and it’s going to come in handy for Ryder ”, he said.
