This Saturday in Augusta was a very long day for Jon Rahm without a doubt. He summed it up like this in the mixed zone: “This morning I got a great par at 11, a great birdie at 12, a good par at 13 and how well I played. It’s a pity that I didn’t manage to putt that 16 putt, which I had shot well the second…”.
Jon Rahm, statements
Regarding the last bogey on the 18th, Jon explained: “On the 18th I hit a good drive, a good 4-iron… but these holes are tricky.” Then he spoke about how “I haven’t hit bad shots, it has rained a lot…
maybe the wind was not visible on TV in the afternoon… it’s not easy at all. And the only one but the putt of 5, which I shot well. But hey, the rest has been good golf”. He was also asked if playing with Brooks Koepka is a motivation for him: “Yes, yes, sure.
In the end he is someone who has played well on the European Tour, he is someone who has played well in Grand Slams with different elements. In the end Mentally, he’s someone who knows how to do it, right? So you know he’s not going to make many mistakes.
In the end they might come out, because we’re all going to get bogeys this week, but you know that at some point it’s going to happen. I think that at the moment it is more to concentrate on what I can do than on anything else,” Rahm replied.
And the last one: 30 holes tomorrow, how do you approach it and how do you prepare mentally? It’s not the first time….”No, go home to rest. Let’s see if I can go to bed soon and more of the same tomorrow. It’s nothing special. In the end, with the adrenaline, things don’t change a lot”.
