Terrible Rise John Rahm, Genesis Invitational 3R 3 stroke lead… 3 wins in the new year and world No. 1 on the verge
John Rahm (Spain) took the lead by 3 strokes in the 3rd round of the Genesis Invitational. If he wins, he will be ranked No. 1 in the world with three wins this year.
Ram, who is ranked third in the world in men’s golf, made a birdie 6 without bogey in the third round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars) held at the Riviera CC (par 71, 7322 yards) in Pacific Palisades, California, USA on the 19th. He caught a dog and hit 6 under par 65 strokes, recording a total of 15 under par 198 strokes, taking the lead by three strokes ahead of Max Homa (12 under par 201 strokes, USA) in the second round. Ram, who started in 3rd place, 1 stroke behind co-leaders Homa and Keith Mitchell (USA) by hitting 6-under-par 65 on the first day, shortened the gap by 3 strokes in the second round and rose to the lead that day.
If John Rahm wins, he will win his third trophy after this year’s Sentry Tournament of Champions and American Express, and achieve 10 PGA wins. In March of last year, right after the WGC Dell Technologies match play, he lost the world No. 1 spot to Scotty Scheffler (USA), and after 11 months, he will rise to the world No. 1 again. Ram has never been outside of the top 10, including four victories in the last 10 tournaments, including the two European tours he participated in after finishing the Tour Championship in the final round of the PGA Tour last season and the Hero World Challenge, an event hosted by Tiger Woods.
Ram, who won the Sentry Tournament of Champions by striking a 63 on the final day and beating Colin Morikawa (USA), who led the third round, won the come-from-behind victory. I think we can win,” he said, promising to do his best until the end. 온라인카지노
Co-leader Keith Mitchell (USA) and Ram in the first round had a close battle exchanging co-leaders and reversals throughout the day. Max Homa cruised with four birdies without a bogey until the 13th hole, but committed consecutive bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes. Unfortunately, Moving Day ended. Homa, who won two consecutive Fortinet Championships in the opening game of the 2022-2023 season and stopped Jon Rahm’s three consecutive victories at the Farmers Insurance Open last month, is aiming for a reversal in the final round.
Keith Mitchell took 3rd place by 4 strokes (11 under par, 202 strokes), and Patrick Cantlay (USA) followed with 4th place (10 under par, 203 strokes).
Scotty Scheffler (USA), who returned to world No. 1 by winning the WM Phoenix Open last week, finished in a tie for 15th (5 under par, 208 strokes), facing a crisis of stepping down from the throne in a week. World No. 2 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) stayed tied for 18th (4 under par 209 strokes).
Kim Joo-hyung (21) and Lim Seong-jae (25) tied for 45th with a total of 1 under par and 212 strokes over the three days. Kim Joo-hyung, who shot an even-par 71 in the third round, fell 12 places from the previous day, and Lim Seong-jae, who was sluggish with a 3-over-par 74, fell 33 places from a tie for 12th the previous day. Rookie Kim Seong-hyeon (25) tied for 55th (even par 213 strokes).
Kim Si-woo, Lee Kyung-hoon, and Kim Young-soo were eliminated from the cut.
