Rahm, on the pulse for the 15 million dollars

The Biscayan leaves this Thursday (19:06) in the Northern Trust, the first appointment of the PGA playoffs, which deliver that succulent figure to the winner.

Almost a month after a strange positive for coronavirus that Jon Rahm denies separated him from the Olympic Games, the Biscayan returns to action this Thursday at the Northern Trust, the first appointment of the PGA playoffs (FedEx Cup for sponsorship reasons ) which is held at the Liberty National Golf Course in New Jersey (USA).In an idyllic setting at the mouth of the Hudson, overlooking the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan, not far from the streets where the Soprano family committed their television misdeeds, the pulse will begin for the 15 million dollars (12, 8 euros) to be pocketed by the winner of the circuit after the final in Atlanta next September.

In this first act, the 125 most regular players on the circuit so far this season appear out of the 250 who have the full card. Among them Rahm, who has played 19 tournaments with 12 top-10s and a victory at the US Open, the first major of his career, is the fifth best classified. It will leave at 19:06 (from 20:00 on Movistar Plus) with the American Harris English and the Mexican Abraham Ancer. Sergio García, the other Spaniard in contention, who is 40th on the list, will do so at 18:44 with the American Lucas Glover and the New Zealander Matt Jones. Rahm assures that his objective in New Jersey is to "win", as always, although he is above all "to reach the Tour Championship in the best possible position."The latter is not trivial, since in recent years a format has been operating by which the 30 finalists (after this tournament only the 70 best will have access to the next one, the BMW Championship, which will leave the final cut in the aforementioned thirty) start with a certain margin of strokes won on the field according to their place in the table: the first with -10, the second with -8, the third with -7, the fourth with -6, the fifth with -5, from the sixth to the tenth with - 4, from 11th to 15th with -3, from 16th to 20th with -2, from 21st to 25th with -1 and the last five to par.

Right now ahead of Rahmbo is Collin Morikawa, Rahm's man of the year, who won WGC-Workday and the British Open, another winner from majors like Jordan Spieth, Patrick Cantlay and Harris English. Those are the men whose results should improve the Basque, without losing sight of what DeChambeau, Thomas, Schauffele or Dustin Johnson do. The further you keep all these bulldogs away, the better. You can get a good millionaire in it.
