Jon Rahm has reviewed his emotional withdrawal from The Memorial last year to US Open hero, desires to challenge Tiger Woods’ record.

“When I realized they were OK, I was in my little trailer, that little Covid cottage we had, and me and my caddie were giggling. We requested milkshakes and we were snickering at the entertaining piece of everything.

“Well, the way that that occurred; that I had a six-shot lead and it’s gone, I couldn’t play, right. All in all, it’s simply – the incongruity, all things considered, sort of made us snicker.

“In any case, at that point, I decided to simply recollect how great I had played. I had played great golf the entire year last season yet it was whenever all that first was clicking, and that was just before the main part of the time.

“So I felt only agreeable and certain for the mid year. What’s more, truly, I didn’t allow it to dial me back and I played extraordinary golf the remainder of the late spring up to The Ryder Cup.

“I decided to simply remain in the positive of things. What’s more, when I returned home and I was managing Covid, I actually remained confident.

All the difficult work I’ve done the earlier months since I changed to Callaway, it doesn’t simply go that way, right.

“So I was sure when I moved forward at Torrey that I could make it happen, and that is what I’m talking about, it wasn’t exactly a low.”

“Sadly last year I figure it would have been – on the off chance that I had won, I would have been the first since Tiger to win one after the other.

“So for that to occur, I must win this year. So in the event that I appear one year from now playing great once more, I will have the option to make it happen.

“So I’ll zero in on that. There were a ton of things that I was anticipating a year ago. One of them was drawing near to one of Tiger’s scoring records at the course.

“However, once more, the beneficial thing about golf is there’s generally a one week from now and a one year from now. Once more, I get another opportunity this time.”
