Rahm fell short in his effort to reach number one in the world, and will have to wait for future tournaments
Jon Rahm was unable to extend his successful streak of results in the 2023 start and finished in seventh position in the Farmers Insurance Open, PGA Tour tournament that ended today in San Diego.
The Spanish golfer went into the final 18 holes from second position and two shots behind the leader, the American Sam Ryder, although he was never in a position to fight for victory. The Spaniard already started with a bogey on hole 1, hit a double bogey on hole five, after getting tangled up in the rough, and one more bogey on hole 7. He only had one shot left on par five, hole 6, the only birdie of his first nine holes.
Barrika’s man was uncomfortable with his game throughout the day; very erratic from the tee and without the necessary effectiveness with the putts that would have given him a chance to get into the tournament. Rahm also fell short in his effort to reach number one in the world, and will have to wait for future tournaments.
The only consolation is that his seventh position allows him to continue to lead the FedEx Cup. Rahm used more pride than game to make up his score on the back nine of Torrey Pines. He closed with birdies at 14, 17.
On the 18th, after a bad exit to the bunker, he had a last birdie putt downhill of about three meters, which did not go in to conclude with a round of +2 (74 shots) and an accumulated score of -8, five shots behind. Max Homa, final winner of the tournament. Home victory for Homa The Californian achieved his sixth victory on the PGA Tour (the fourth in his home state of California). Homa finished with a spectacular lap of -6 with which he certified a relatively comfortable victory with two shots ahead of the North American veteran. Kegaan Bradley.
