Two long putts for birdie on the 18th hole and on the 2nd seemed to change the irregular trend of his round, but Rahm was unable to take advantage of the par five on the 3rd hole, after a poor start, and added a bogey on the par four of the hole.
6. He has recovered immediately with a birdie, but his -1 on the day prevents him from taking off in a classification in which, with that -4, he is far from the top positions.
