Mexico City /
After signing a card of 64 strokes, seven under par, the Spanish golfer Jon Rahmnumber 2 in the world ranking, and five American players took the lead of the Mexico Open of the US PGA Tour to celebrate the first day of yesterday Thursday.
“Yes, very comfortable off the tee. It’s not like it was ever bad, but today I felt especially comfortable. Not the most demanding golf course from the tee, apart from the 10th hole and maybe the 1st hole. You are not in real danger of being in a bad position, but, although it’s generous, when I’m hitting shots with the trajectory and flight of the ball that I wanted, I just gives me more confidence for any other shot. I felt very comfortable out there, so it was reflected in the score,” said the golfer.
Rahmthe great favorite to win this contest, recorded an eagle on hole 7 and five birdies on holes 4, 12, 13, 14 and 18, on the course that takes place on the golf course Vidanta, en Vallartastate Jalisco and spoke of his learnings in a new field.
“I don’t think there is anything special that you learned before that you didn’t know before you started. Obviously none of us have seen the golf course before, except obviously the Ortizes. It is a very good golf course. And the only thing that people who see the scores have to take into account is that there is a big difference between morning and afternoon. We had no wind for 13, 14 holes, it’s very, very scoring. Once the wind starts blowing at 20, 30 miles per hour, this golf course starts to show its teeth. It is long, you’ve got a couple of really long par 4s, 4s and 8s straight into the wind, both 500 yards, so you can start to see higher scores. Once again, there is nothing to really learn. Not that I had to.”
