“It was not my best day. I told Adam (Hayes, his caddy) in the middle of the lap: everything that could go wrong he has done. Even shots that weren’t bad ended up in very bad places, such as hole 5. I haven’t had much luck and I haven’t had my best day in general and it was difficult for me to come back. It’s a shame that when things were going better, the bogeys of 11 and 12 came and stopped my lap. Let’s see if tomorrow I start better and give myself a chance, “Jon Rahm explained to the media after his +1 on the third round of the Acciona Open in Spain that leaves him six strokes behind the leader, Rafa Cabrera Bello.
The number one in the world attended the press the same as the rest of the days and did not hide: “It is an honor that so many people follow me, the pity is that I played so badly and they saw me on a bad day. The luck of golf is that after removing the last day, there is always a next day to improve. It is good not to have a bad day habit. It is to understand that it is golf and it happens. There are moments that can change the lap and today it has not come out. The way I felt the swing could have been a lot worse. Tomorrow (departs at 12:11) I will attack from the beginning because before I can not “.
The Barrika golfer does not consider results to achieve, nor predictions, nor speculation about what he would have to do: “With what dream? With a good dinner. Then sleep and tomorrow do what needs to be done. The main thing is that I will have to do very few strokes And I’ll need a day like Thursday or better to just give me options. Let’s see if it comes out. At the 2019 Irish Open he was in the same situation with the same leader (on hole 4 of the final round Cabrera Bello was the leader and was ahead of him by five strokes) and although Rafa (departs at 12:55) I really like him, I hope I can repeat what happened. “
Finally, he praised the ‘marshals’ and thanked the majority of the public understood that it is vital to silence the phones in golf: “There have been many more volunteers who repeated the slogans and the noise has been better. I understand that it happens, I understand that not all are golfers and that if you are watching a football game and your cell phone rings, then nothing happens. It is what they are a bit used to, it is understandable, but as I say today it has been much better. Little by little you will learn, there are many people who are in their first tournament and they think they cannot hear it. The volunteers have been incredible and the public has understood that much better. “
