Rahm is unleashed, is leader in The Players and will fight for the title

The Biscayan, who goes first, signed a third round of 64 strokes (-8) in Sawgrass and is in a total of -15. He made a majestic blow on the famous hole 17 (Isla Verde).


Jon Rahm unleashed his best golf at The Players. It was in the third round, in which he signed in Sawgrass a brutal card of 64 hits (-8) with siete birdies, an eagle and, above all, a tremendous handling of his long game. Definitely the change of date of the considered fifth major, which happened from May to March, has come like a glove to Barrika, who takes advantage of a field in which until now had not dazzled ... " That the field is not going is a sensation misleading, "admitted Rahm, who is a solo leader with a blow on his pursuers.

Y ratified in these holes, because Rahm who had done a good first two days (69 and 68) marveled. "The modification of the calendar has been good for me, it's played longer. I think the most important thing is when you lose , you can control the game better, "continued Jon, 24, who in the previous two editions had derailed on Saturday. This time it was not like that.

If you had to summarize his return in two stellar moments, would be remarkable the eagle of 11 in which he sealed a 222-meter shot to leave it next to hole and very bright was his behavior in 17, the fearsome green island (green island) , in which Rahm hit a wedge in which the ball was given. A brutal turn.

Rahm, who has five top-10s of six this season, confesses that he has grown at the level of maturity and in Sawgrass, a field that may come to unsettle, he has shown at the moment: "It would be something big, I have grown a lot in the mental aspects of the game. I am very proud of myself, because I controlled my emotions very well. "

Rahm will be the last 18 holes with a stroke of advantage over Tommy Fleetwood and McIlroy (both -14), three over Jason Day (-12) and four over the Mexican Abraham Ancer (-11). Only one Spaniard has won this tournament. It was Sergio García (now marches in -3) in 2008. It's time for Rahmbo.

Results complete.
