The No. The No. Jon RahmAccording to, he recently received some solid advice on how he can keep his game at its peak as long as possible.
It came from Tiger Woods.
I asked him, Out of the 82 wins, — I didn’t get into any other ones — How many times do you think that you played your best over the four days? Rahm spoke to reporters on Tuesday. And he said, Three at the most. Right? He played his best on Sundays, but he only did that for a small portion of the week.
The truth is that you dont have to be firing on all cylinders in order to win.
Rahm, who won the Genesis Invitational on February 19, was able to move up to the No. The Spaniard is firing on all cylinders, having landed the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking. When asked if anyone could beat him ahead of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, the answer was No.
Rahm quickly added that he hoped that many players would feel the exact same way. However, its hard not to admire Rahms confidence in the state his game is in. He arrived at Bay Hill after his fifth win in nine global starts. He is the first player since Johnny Miller (1975) to win three events within a single year.
When you are No. 1, theres a lot to it. Rahm said that 1 is the best when all the other golfers are playing great golf. Scottie [Scheffler]Rory had a great year. [McIlroy]It was a great year. I felt like I had just started to pick up the pace towards the end.
And even with Scottie winning in Phoenix, I managed to get to No. 1 right after.
Scheffler was the one who knocked McIlroy from the top spot at TPC Scottsdales Waste Management Open on February 12, but Schefflers reign only lasted one week before Rahm won at Riviera.
It remains to be seen how long Rahm will stay there. McIlroy and Scheffler could jumpfrog him again, depending on how things at Bay Hill.
Rahm, a vocal critic against the OWGR, acknowledged that the power struggle over No. The game is thrilling when there are three elite players competing for No. 1.
Rahm stated that Its been fantastic. What is it, the greatest amount of No. In such a short time, how many No. 1 changes have you seen? I was interested in seeing some of these stats, as they are very interesting and speak to the quality of the game of golf, and how well everyone has been playing.
The top players are now competing in the same event more often because of the redesigned schedule and increased purses that the PGA Tour has implemented in response to LIV Golfs competition.
This week, 43 out of 50 top OWGR players will be at Bay Hill — the largest number of participants at an event since the 2022 open championship. They will also travel two hours north to attend the Players Championship next week.
With an eye towards the Masters in April, thats all. Rahm may be pushed to keep his current level by the threat of Scheffler and McIlroy at the top of world rankings.
He said that being No. 1 brings him a lot of satisfaction. Number 1 in the entire world. When we play the way that we have, its a lot more fun.
You should take some time to reflect on your work and have fun with it. However, you shouldnt let it end, as competitors.
