SOTOGRAND, Spain (NWN) – John Rahm’s fight at home continued on Thursday with a 7/78 score for his second worst round in professional history, leaving his 11 shots off the club’s lead in the Andalucía Masters.
He also made 78 shots in the second round of the British Open in 2018. His worst result was 82 in the third round of The Players Championship in 2017.
The # 1 player in the Real Club Valderrama rankings in southern Spain had four machine guns and a double scarecrow on the front nine and another on the back nine.
He was almost in last place after half a point in the first round, with only seven players scoring more points than him.
Ram was returning home last week after returning home for nearly two years with a disappointing 17th place at the Spanish Open. He started with 63, but didn’t play well for the rest of the round, and he didn’t have a title defense on Sunday.
The US Open champion did not play in the Andalucía Masters last year. The tournament was won by John Kathleen, the American, who opened the scoring 2: 73 to begin his title defense.
Julien Guerrier, who finished third in the Spanish Open, was the first leader after shooting 4 out of 67. Rafa Cabrera Bello, winner of the Spanish Open, was one shot behind.
The swing in Spain will end next week at the Mallorca Open.
