Rahm: “I would rather have three Open wins like Seve and not a 63″

When you get used to what for others seems (and often is) impossible, you tend to normalize it. Maybe that’s why Jon Rahm appeared this Saturday in the mixed zone of the Royal Liverpool Golf Club with a relaxed, but serious gesture, like someone who doesn’t want the thing. In front of him, a very large group of reporters milled around. Not just Spanish. Even Jaime Díaz, one of the most important figures in American golf journalism, who has worked for renowned outlets such as Golf Digest, Sports Illustrated either Golf Channelwas there, waiting for Rahmbo’s impressions on a historic return.

“The first 17 holes of the first round of the masters They were the same, almost better. But like 18 holes, yes. It is equivalent to that day. The sensations are a bit different from the Masters, because I was there in the tournament from the first day and this was also a bit due to the weather conditions”, he started.

“Yes, I’m going to say yes. It has been one of those days in which I feel invincible. I’ve been very comfortable, really, especially from the tee. When I’m so comfortable off the tee it’s very easy to stay aggressive and give myself chances. It’s the best round I’ve ever played at a British Open. In fact it is the best round I have ever played in a links ”, he analyzed.

Even so, he acknowledged that he would change his 63, something he never did It looks“for the three Jars of Clarete” that the genius of Pedreña achieved. Also that there is “a lot of work to do” on Sunday to take home the third big one. A hit to keep for a day to remember? “It is going to be complicated. It’s hard to say one. The eight putt. I think approaching and putting is difficult. I hadn’t read the wind well and make that putt, then putt the nine… It’s hard to say one. I prefer the 20 minutes between the par number 8 and the birdie number 10. It is where everything has changed”.

He also touched on the issue of frustration, which he expressed especially on the first day at the 18th fairway, when he got angry at the crowd of television operators who were following a match in which the British hope, Rory McIlroy, also played (he acknowledged that going this time with the Korean Sungjae Im, in a less stimulating match for the locals, helped), and on the 10th green on Saturday after missing a short putt. “Honestly, I seem frustrated often. I was playing good golf but making mistakes. I left blows that in a big one are very expensive. I think I’m a lot more patient than people think. I simply show my frustration more often than others, but I am extremely positive on the field, ”he pointed out before outlining the strategy to face another Sunday in the fight for a major: “There is a lot of golf left to play. I’m just going to enjoy the afternoon with my family. That’s all. I feel that I have done a very good job in the previous weeks and in this one, giving myself a chance. I’m going to eat, see my physio and enjoy some family time before I go to bed. As simple as that”.
