Many talk about Jon Rahm and his performances, as he is not in good shape. Rahm seems frustrated by the same questions, and the statistics that are constantly mentioned: “I’m kind of getting tired of answering the same question every single week.
When you’re No. 1 off the tee and top 10 in strokes gained approach, my putting stats are not going to be top 20. It’s absolutely impossible unless I’m winning every single week by eight. Kind of how it goes."

Rahm explained his view
Rahm is trying to work hard and fix his game, but he is aware that it will not be easy. However, public pressure seems to affect him and he can no longer tolerate it.
“Is it as good as it could be? No, but I think it shows in the stats worse than it actually feels just because I’m hitting so many greens and hitting it so good. Again, I feel like I’ve said it a few times, it’s not as bad as it looks; it feels a lot better than it looks.
Maybe I haven’t gotten the results yet, but I’m not worried about it”. “I know the stats, don’t worry. I don’t need to know that it’s not going well. Yeah, I’m working on some stuff.
I’ve been working on changing some things, and sometimes things get worse, apparently. Stats are not everything. There’s certain things I’ve gotten a lot better, but it’s a combination of things. My ball-striking has been so good, as well, that if I miss two greens a round and don’t get up-and-down on one of them because I left myself in a bad spot, the stats are not going to show that it’s really good.
So yeah, I’m working on things”. Of course, only the best is expected of him, but we have no doubt that Rahm will return to the form in which we expect him.
