What happens to Jon Rahm?

Gone remaining 23 competitions, more than 180,000 kilometers traveled and 6,271 blows, not including those stuck in the five matches of the Ryder Cup. Thousands of signed autographs, airplane hours, Practice turns, days for sponsors and media, recording of advertisements and a change of material. All this with many hours of adjustments. From the busy 2021, Jon Rahm highlights the first victory of him in a major and consolidation of him at the top of golf as number one. The negative: two parons by Covid19, who deprived him of a victory at the Tournament Memorial and to fulfill the dream of being an Olympic athlete. Everything concentrated in 10 months where Kepa, the first child of him was born.

In the balance of Spanish clearly "the good surpasses the bad", but has reached the end of exhausted season physically and mentally, as he confessed after his failed cut in the star Damm Andalusia Valderrama Masters.

Yesterday morning, Rahm would have to be focused on the crowded countryside practice field, but Barrika has breakfast relaxed with her family at the remarkable and spectacular Sotogrande SO hotel. He then took a flight from Gibraltar Rumbo to Phoenix, and from there, four weeks of vacation. "It's the first time in my life that I do not want to see a golf club and look, it's weird because I'm passionate about this sport," said Basque.

Especially busy has been the end of the season, since the end of August, he fought for FedExcup three consecutive weeks, rested a week and failed the cut in Silverado, where he already gave the first samples of fatigue. The following week, the wear on the Ryder Cup was wild, disputing the five games, and only with a few days of rest he undertook a trip to compete in Spain. "The public was the reason why I have come, apart from wanting to win, I understand that reaching the level that I have come, I can help Spanish golf," he commented. "I will continue to come, but I got a little tired, I do not like to make excuses, I have tried, but more than the body, the mind has not given me for more," he insisted.

Golf is one of the sports where mental control is basic. The pressure must be handled, maintain the concentration five hours for four days, a sport with the ball stopped in most of the development of the game where external factors also influence. The wear is very demanding, more if you are the reference of all and with the additional pressure of playing at home.

In addition to work in the field, in these two weeks in Spain, Rahm has not left a photo for making, nor an autograph for signing, touches now hanging the clubs one month and enjoying the first juges of his son. The number one will return in November to try to win the Race to Dubai of the European circuit. "Dubai will go, but I can not assure him that he touched a stick until then. In 2019, when I won I was without touching a stick in five or six weeks. Meter many hours these weeks do not suppose improvement," Rahm explained.
