Rahm bet on one

The Spaniard returns a month later with the aim of recovering the world number one in Las Vegas. Dustin Johnson will not be following his positive for coronavirus.


For the first time since its inception in 2017, the CJ Cup is played on US soil. The young event had always been held in South Korea, being one of the few tournaments on the PGA Tour to be held abroad.

This fact made many of the best golfers lose interest in going, since changing continents for four days did not appeal to them too much. Now, the pandemic has forced the CJ Cup to be moved to Las Vegas, and Shadow Creek will only host the competition this year.

Another particularity is the number of participants, only 78: the first 60 classified in the last FedExCup, several players from the Korean circuit and a few other guests, among whom is Sergio García for his good start to the season. Who is not these days in Las Vegas is the world number one, Dustin Johnson, after testing positive for coronavirus. DJ was back in action after his recent successes that earned him the FedExCup, but he will have to isolate himself to overcome the disease.

This again opens the doors of number one in the world rankings to Jon Rahm. The Spaniard returns to the fields almost a month after his last event, the US Open. Since then, the Barrika man took a well-deserved vacation to arrive as fresh as possible for this new season, which is preparing to host the Augusta Masters in less than a month.

To regain the world number one he has held for only four weeks, Rahmbo needs a very good performance in Las Vegas: he will lead the world if he wins the CJ Cup, if he finishes second alone or if he is second tied only with one other player. The accounts are clear, and it will not be easy for Rahm. Great players such as Justin Thomas, Morikawa, McIlroy and many more will try to claim victory on Sunday.
