80 THE CUT DRIVING DISTANCE 299y 273m DRIVING ACCURACY 56% GREENS IN REGULATION 74% PUTTING AVERAGE 1.34 PGA TOUR STATS JON RAHM BORN 10 NOVEMBER, 1994 Jon Rahm turned professional in 2016 following an extremely impressive amateur career – Rahm was the number-one ranked golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 60 weeks. He received the Ben Hogan award in 2015 and 2016 and the Mark H. McCormack Medal in 2015. He claimed the honour of low amateur at the 2016 US Open, finishing in a tie for 23rd place at seven over par. He has already notched up one professional win on the PGA Tour. His golf swing is instantly recognisable due to his restricted shoulder turn and resulting incomplete backswing, but he generates huge lag and power on his downswing from the extreme strength in his core and leg muscles. His short/compact golf swing and his sharp short game will, I believe, see his name feature for years to come. MASTERS CHANCES Since the inaugural Masters in 1934, only two rookies have defied the odds to win first time out. I don’t expect him to add to that exclusive list but I am predicting him to make the cut.
