The Spanish Jon Rahm has been placed as leader of the CareerBuilder Challenge, tournament of the PGA Tour of golf that is played in three tours of Californian club La Quinta, after a brilliant first day in which he signed 62 strokes, 10 under par.

Rahm, number 3 in the world and since becoming professional in mid-2016 has added three titles, handed a card with an eagle and up to eight birdies, and pairs in the rest of the holes.

The vizcaíno started with strength and with birdies to 1 and 2. In the 5 signed a large eagle and then sealed another two birdies followed at 6 and 7. He also took a blow to the holes, 11, 13, 14 and 18 for those 62 (-10).
