David Puig He made a golden birdie on his last hole and, with his fist raised, snuck to the top of the rankings with -10 (-6 on Saturday) on the Houston course of LIV Golf. He had already presented his candidacy before, as he linked four birdies in five holes and placed himself in command of the Spanish expedition and just one stroke away from the head of the table, made up of Carlos Ortiz, Paul Casey and Adrian Meronk, with -10 . And the Catalan’s great moment of form is undeniable and he starred, along with Rahm, in the two friends, university classmates and more than likely teammates also in the next Olympic Games in Paris.

And the second day of LIV Golf in Houston put an end to Jon Rahm’s comeback aspirations, since he retired with only six holes played due to an infected cut between the toes of his left foot. Everything indicates that during the first round Rahm already had problems due to this injury, but he managed to finish the round. Already in the second, a grimace of pain after the tee shot of his 3rd hole revealed that the discomfort had returned. Three holes later he submitted his withdrawal from the tournament. The test of touch that this tournament was going to represent for the Open USA next week has not gone as expected, which leaves a huge unknown about the performance of the Biscayan facing the third major of the year.

Sergio, for his part, was about to finish the round without a blemish because his last hole was the only one that ended with a “bogey” for a total of -7. Consolidated just three strokes behind the leaders, a Sunday start was left with options.

Eugenio López Chacarra made as many mistakes as he made successes and, although it is true that he always recovered after the “bogeys”, the pair on the final card relegated him to 28th place with -3.
