john rahmo He went out with his war pictures on the third day Open Championship and managed to finish sixth, five strokes behind the leader, thanks to receiving the card two under par, which places them with -7 in the absence of the final match.

Again, pleasant weather, sunny afternoons and hardly any wind, invite retreat. Start with six shots from South Africa louis ostuizen. However, the first was on the forehead. Busy bogie on hole 1 with a five-feet bad tail. He didn’t even touch the hole. But ‘Rambo’ was not ready to miss a historic opportunity on Sunday. A huge birdie put on hole 3 brought the card back into balance.

The deceptive calmness of the day was in contrast to the difficulties presented by Royal St George, encouraged by the complex flag conditions, increasingly harsh and dry greens and the logistical pressure of having a day of movement in the last major of the year. Rahm’s birdie on the 6th hole looked to boost the Spaniard’s round, but the bogey on the 7th hole fell like a blow to Barrica’s wide back. As he continued his fight through holes 8, 9 and 10 of the legendary English course, leader Osthuizen was composing a harmonized symphony, his movement, all rhythm and balance, despite the largely dry time of more than 11. had gone till year. year.

It was a fine afternoon like yesterday at the Cathedral of Golf in St Andrews in 2010, when King Louis was leading his only Grand Slam win four strokes clear on the final day when he picked up the gold jug. History seemed to be repeating itself. Oosthuizen finished the first nine holes under two par, and only Jordan Spieth It looked like he might be standing in front of her. John made a new mistake on the 11th hole. For any other player it would be sure, but the US Open winner’s fighting spirit is endless and he reacted quickly with a birdie on the 12th hole. Another hole and hold short put for par 5 on the 14th, also for a birdie on the 17th. Rahm’s final stretch was crucial, not so much because of the birdie, but because he didn’t make a single mistake, saving a single peak in 18th, which gave him the illusion of continuing back, making history.

However, for the leader, the 11th hole seemed to end his winning streak. Oosthuizen signed his first bogey of the day with a new error in the 13th. He then shared the tournament’s leadership. Colin Morikawa And Jordan Spieth and such leaves an exciting last day. Jon Rahm himself knows he has a chance: “It’s clear that I should play my best game and spend the day.”
