Jon Rahm has a terrible accident at the LIV Golf event, which makes the $4 million prize seem unlikely.
Jon Rahm has a terrible accident at the LIV Golf event, which makes the $4 million prize seem unlikely.

At LIV Golf Hong Kong, Jon Rahm had a bad end to his first round. He ended Friday with a triple-bogey seven.

That was the only bad shot the Masters winner had made all day. The player from Spain made six birdies and had no bogeys in his first 17 holes. He was in a great spot as he got close to the last hole of the day.

It was Rahm’s fifth shot on the 18th hole after a bad tee shot. He came at them very well, which gave him a chance to lessen the harm. Even so, the captain of Legion XIII missed the double birdie putt. He could only get a seven because of this. It was the only mistake in what looked like a great start to the event.

Rahm’s score dropped back to three-under par for the event. At the top, he is now four shots behind Abraham Ancer and Dean Burmester.

The Spanish golfer has done well since moving to the league backed by Saudi Arabia. In his first three events, he finished no lower than eighth. There is no question that he wants to win as soon as possible. He wants to win one of LIV’s £13.1 million ($15 million) prizes.

Rahm has won one game with his team, though. Last month, Legion XIII beat their first game in Mexico. Rahm, Tyrrell Hatton, Kieran Vincent, and Caleb Surratt are fourth in the team results after their win in Mexico. They want to do even better in the future.

Rahm talked about his team’s hopes before the tournament: “Well, I think if there’s a way to describe my team in golf terms, it would be a team of four solid ball strikers.” If the golf course is narrow, that will clearly win. The greens are in great shape, so it shouldn’t be hard to make putts. In that way, I think it fits our skills.”

Rahm has really enjoyed playing as a team since he joined LIV Golf, and the Spaniard is very optimistic about his Legion XIII setting. “Like I’ve said many times we’re a young team,” he said.

“We have two extremely experienced players and two that are still learning, and without having anywhere near our best in the last two weekends, we’ve managed to stay close to the podium and finish no worse than fifth so far.”We won our first event, but even when we’re not playing at our best, we’re still in the running. That’s what I keep telling them should be the most positive thing.

We’ll soon all be firing on all cylinders like they were on Sunday. “I’m just waiting for the day that happens.” I’m excited to see Caleb and Kieran show everyone what they can really do.

In a very close race, Rahm is tied for 18th place as an individual, and Legion XIII is in 10th place as a team.

AUBURG, Ga. — The biggest word in golf right now, before its biggest event, has nothing to do with technique, gear, or any of the stars who will be at Augusta National this week. The hot topic right now is sustainability, or more specifically, how unsustainable people think the current situation is. For example, the world’s best pros are playing on separate tours, and their long-awaited alliance is still uncertain. Also, more people are joining a sport that wasn’t there before.
