Rahm and Sergio hang off the fight in Florida

Uneven performance in the third round of the Basque (at par) and Borriol (-5 to -8). Rahmbo has no options and Garcia needs a miracle.


The World Championships have never been fertile ground for Spanish golf (no national player has won one of its four tests in 75 editions) and it does not seem that that will change this Sunday.

Jon Rahm and Sergio García will go to the fourth round at The Concession club in Florida (USA), far off the top of the table, which at the end of this news was for the American Morikawa with -17 after 12 holes. Rahmbo and Sergio had a mixed performance yesterday on the third day.

The Basque came out earlier, after a weak round of +4 on Friday. He couldn't find the key this time, either. Each of his four birdies was countered by as many bogeys and after 44 tournament holes he is still exactly the same as where he started, at par. He was provisional 46th in the table and the victory is a chimera for him.

Another rooster crowed for Garcia. Borriol's did find the magic to recover from what was another poor performance in the second round (+2). He made three birdies and a bogey in the first nine and closed with another three birdies without failure in the final half of the course. With -8 in the accumulated, he was 15th at the clubhouse, nine strokes behind Morikawa.

Despite his return, it will be difficult to get into a heavyweight fight with Horschel, Reed, Simpson, Finau, Fitzpatrick or Koepka. The canary Rafa Cabrera Bello, meanwhile, did +1 to +1 and was 57th.
