The biggest concern of the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open, which kicks off on the 25th (Korean time) at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California, is whether Ram, who is ranked 3rd in the world, will win three consecutive victories. Rahm won both the Sentry Tournament of Champions and last week’s American Express, a PGA Tour event he has participated in this year. If he wins the Farmers Insurance Open this week, he will set a record of three consecutive victories.
For the first time since Dustin Johnson 메이저사이트 (USA) in 2017, Rahm will challenge for three consecutive wins on the PGA Tour. At that time, Johnson won three victories in a row at the Genesis Open, WGC-Mexico Championship, and WGC-Dell Match Play. In Del Match Play, he defeated Ram by one hole and won the championship.
According to the current trend, no one can stop Ram. Most experts and gamblers predict Ram as the number one favorite. Justin Thomas (USA) and Jason Day (Australia) are emerging as opponents. Ram is suffering from a huge barrage of autographs from fans at Torrey Pines Golf Course, where the tournament is held.
Ram has won 4 of the last 6 matches, and if you include the runner-up in the DP World Tour BMW PGA Championship in September last year, he is recording an average of 66.9 strokes with 134 under par in the last 7 matches. Rahm also finished in the top 10 nine times in the 10 competitions he has participated in since August last year. The only case that was pushed out of the top 10 was a tie for 16th in the Tour Championship, the final match of the FedEx Cup.
The reason Ram’s winning party is highly likely to happen this week is because of his outstanding performance on the competition course, Torrey Pines. Rahm has won twice at Torrey Pines. He got his first PGA Tour win at the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open. And four years later, at the 2021 US Open, he succeeded in winning the first major in his life. The combined score of the two competitions recorded by Ram at the time of winning the South Course, which is much more difficult among the 36-hole Torrey Pines, was a whopping 36 under par. It is a phenomenal gap ahead of the second place player by 15 strokes.
Justin Thomas (USA) recently said, “Rahm hit a whopping 54 under par in the two recent championships,” adding, “Rahm is also a player optimized for Torrey Pines. Ram hits the cut shot well. A cut shot that curves from left to right is powerful on the narrow fairway of Torrey Pines. And any shot that can set the ball up on the hard green at Torrey Pines is a cut shot,” he said. As Thomas said, Rahm finished in a tie for 5th, a tie for 2nd, a tie for 7th and a tie for 3rd in the last 4 Farmers Insurance Opens. Did he say that when there is frequent thunder, it will rain? All he has left is to win.
