Jon Rahm And That 'Putt' To Change His Destiny In The Open

The Biscayan achieved a card of 69 strokes (-4 in total) after a day in which Sergio García shone (-6) and Tiger said goodbye.

Seven meters, a putt to change The Open Championship. "If something happens over the weekend we will talk about the putt on the 16th hole," warned John Rahm after signing 67 strokes (-4 in total) during the second day. More than a good card, it is a different feeling to face the weekend. The analysis is simple, 36 putts during the first day and 29 today. The explanation for those seven strokes difference is very clear: a change of putter.

"I had put another putter into play with half a degree more, because according to all the statistics and studies it helps the ball roll better. Yesterday, as soon as I finished, I returned it to the locker. There it stays, I'm going to return with mine", explained Rahm, author of an excellent return from tee to green, with the difference that the putts did not enter.

St. Andrews once again offered a morning of affordable conditions, some rain and no wind, which made it easier for some to recover positions. The first was Sergio García, who managed a partial -7 until the 17th hole, where he committed the only bogey of the day, the ghosts returned with the Road Hole, which has made the player from Castellón lose four shots in two days. He carried that mental breakdown into the 18th, where he made three putts and failed to finish with a birdie . A 66 (-3 in total) that does not seem to have pleased the winner of the 2017 Masters too much.


"I'm proud up to a certain point because it's a 66, but it had to have been a 64 or a 63. In the last few holes I tried not to make any mistakes, just keep making birdies , but when you're not quite right mentally, it's difficult. focus on what I really want to do and there are doubts that do not help. I have slept very little, three hours for everything that happened yesterday, "confessed a Sergio with a sad and worried countenance.

Sergio did not even find consolation with his friend Pau Gasol, who wanted to visit him in the cradle of golf. "I'm happy to be here, one more experience in this world that I'm discovering," said the former Barcelona player. "There is something different here in Scotland. I had never been there and there is something special in the air," concluded the center who won two rings with the Lakers. Pau was not the only celebrity present at St. Andrews, as the renowned chef Dani García arrived just to see Sergio's end and Karlos Arguiñano also left the kitchen to enjoy the best golf.

The reality continued to weigh more than the epic and Tiger Woods confirmed the bad feelings of the first day by saying goodbye with a +3 card today (+9 in total). The champion of 15 majors was fond of his passage through the 18th hole, where the public received him standing up. After crossing the Swilcan Bridge, Woods shed a few tears. Impossible not to get excited in the imposing setting that saw the birth of this sport.


"Yeah, it's very emotional for me. I've been coming here since 1995 and I don't know when I'll be back. I think the next one is in 2030 and I don't know if I'll be fit enough then. So I felt like this may have been my last British in St. Andrews. The fans, the ovation and the heat... It was an incredible feeling, recalled Tiger, who left the press room with his obvious limp, on his way to his private plane.

Against this background, Rahm struck a somewhat brighter note. "Hopefully it will not be the last, but in the next one he will be 54 years old and he is seen in pain. If this is the last one, I am glad I was able to be there in the 18th and applaud. When he walks, it is noticeable, especially when he is not you see in the players' zone and he doesn't have to put on a good face for television," concluded the Biscayan, who had competed just behind him in the match.
