Jon Rahm: ‘Tiger Woods helped me in one way..’

Jon Rahm showed great quality when he won the Mexican Open. Although this season, his form is not the best, Jon Rahm is trying to show his maximum, and there are already indications that things could get better.

It was the experience from the Masters last month that helped Rahm gain confidence and learn some new things. He played with Tiger Woods in the final and revealed the way he tried to play against him.

 ‘I think that Sunday with Tiger Woods at Augusta gave me a quite a bit of confidence. I was a little bit technical in my approach. Too technical. I’m a feel player.’- Jon Rahm said, as quoted by metro.

‘That Sunday I just hit the golf ball. Make the swings you want to make. And I shot a three-under without having my best stuff.’

Jon Rahm on his victory to Mexican Open

Jon Rahm knew what kind of opponent was in front of him, but it was as if he was not afraid of him, so Jon Rahm showed that he is ready for the biggest ones. 

Now Jon has new tournaments that are very important, and his victory in Mexico is a good prelude to what is to come. It will not be easy, given the opponents who will be in the tournaments.

Jon Rahm has what is necessary and that is self-confidence. He believes in himself and his abilities and is ready to make another success.

‘It feels good to get this first win done. Early in the season I had a couple chances and I couldn’t close it out.

‘Today was a battle but I got it done. My first wire-to-wire victory. Even though it was hard at the end I’ll take it.’

Tiger Woods is also under the public eye. The pressure is on him as it has been so far, but no one expects Tiger Woods to show his maximum given his recent return.
