John Rahm (Spain) jumped to second place alone in the third round of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Farmers Insurance Open. As a result, the possibility of becoming number one in the world rankings has increased. 메이저놀이터
In the third round of the tournament held on the 27th (Korean time) at Torrey Pines South Course (par 72) in San Diego, California, USA, Ram shot 6-under-par 66 and ranked second with a median total of 10-under 206. He is two strokes behind leader Sam Ryder (USA), who finished at even par that day. Ram started with a sluggish 1-over par on the first day and started in a tie for 116th, but after reducing 5 strokes in the second round the day before, jumped to 14th and climbed to 2nd place that day.
There are three scenarios for Ram to recapture world number one. First of all, if you win the Farmers Insurance Open, you can unconditionally take back the top spot regardless of the performance of world number one Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), who is currently participating in the DP World Tour Hero Dubai Desert Classic.
The second scenario is if Rahm finishes runner-up this week and McIlroy finishes in third or lower. McIlroy is tied for 3rd after finishing the first round of the Hero Dubai Desert Classic, which has been limping due to heavy rain. The final scenario is Rahm finishing alone 3rd or better at Torrey Pines and McIlroy finishing 27th or lower alone.
Rahm won twice at Torrey Pines. In addition, Sam Ryder, who leads by two strokes, has not yet won a championship on the PGA Tour. Rahm, who is attempting to win three consecutive victories on the PGA Tour, is highly likely to win a come-from-behind victory in the final round. However, he is also a strong player who has won five times in Dubai with McIlroy. In the end, it is expected that Ram will be able to return to No. 1 in the world rankings only when he pulls off a come-from-behind victory.
