Jon Rahm tries also to defend Sergio Garcia


The former world No. 1 never has his tongue in his pocket. Even less when it is necessary to “defend” a friend. In this case Sergio Garcia. Even when he “escaped” after a lap at Wentworth during the last BMW PGA Championship.

Before taking a picture the next day with Madame in a US University football stadium. Only a few months after joining LIV Golf… It’s done, it’s true, bad style!

Jon Rahm, statements

So when asked if his rich past – that of Garcia – on the European Tour can be affected, the Basque answers.

Honestly. “I hope not, says the winner of the US Open 2021. I think golf fans who are also fans of Sergio really do not care about that. (…) This should not change what he brought to our game. What he did in the Ryder Cup (Editor’s note, points record, 28.5), on the European Tour, on the PGA Tour… Well, that’s what I think.

But if the opposite happens, it would be sad” Whoever won here in this final of the DP World Tour (2017 and 2019), even achieving the double (victory + Race in 2019) was much more offensive with LIV Golf when it came to world points that the dissident Tour is trying to recover.

Without for the moment being successful. “We have to stop advertising at LIV,” he shouts. I think a lot of people are against having world ranking points. I’m not necessarily against it, but there should be adjustments.

(…) If they stay on 54 holes and without a cut, one can imagine that only the winner could get 30 points. They still have amazing players. To say that Dustin (Johnson) wasn’t one of the best players this year would be a mistake. But I don’t know if they necessarily deserve 100% of the points…”.
