Jon Rahm says that Tiger Woods made it possible to play tournaments like WGC in Mexico

 Mexico, .- The Spanish Jon Rahm affirmed this Wednesday that if it were not for the influence of the American Tiger Woods it would be complicated to play in Mexico a PGA Tour tournament like the World Golf Championship-Mexico Championship.

“Surely we would not be playing tournaments like this if not for what Tiger did with golf, for how he took it to a higher level, it’s an honor,” Rahm said one day after the first round at the Chapultepec Golf Club of the Mexican capital.

Rahm, 24, said he could not help but stop feeling nervous standing next to Woods on the tee since it was his idol.

Born in Barrica Spain on November 10, 1994, Rahm won a tie-breaker for the US star during the 2018 Ryder Cup.

It is the most important sporting success of his professional career in golf that started a couple of years ago.
“Even though I am a normal person being with him and knowing everything he has won makes me feel quite significant,” he said.

Woods, winner of 14 ‘major’ tournaments, is only behind another American legend, Jack Nicklaus, who owns 18 major events.

Rahm, sixth in the ranking, and last week finished in the top ten of the Los Angeles Open, is one of the favorites for the Mexican tournament, which last year won the American Phil Mickelson.

He heads the Spanish contingent with Sergio García, Rafa Cabrera and Adrián Oategui.
“The Mexican public is one of the best against what I’ve played, especially the first year, it was a tournament that Mexico needed because of the golf hunger I had shown,” he said.
The field of Chapultepec Golf Club has become one of the favorite of the Spanish golfer, so in the third edition of the WGC-Mexico Championship hopes to emerge victorious.

The WGC attracts the best golfers in the world ranking of the present day among which are the Americans Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau. (EFE)
