Rahm and Cameron Smith are holding the top of the 54-hole table at -16. “I guess I’ll have to practice in the TopGolf branch. Assuming I lead a club, I’ll wait for the rain for two more days so I don’t have to play again,” joked Rahm.

The Spanish golfer does not worry about the lack of entertainment when staying in one place thanks to the experience from two periods of self-isolation due to nCoV infection – at the Memorial tournament in June and before Tokyo 2020 at the end of the month. “I think this hurricane day is just like the Covid-19 quarantine. It’s always time to eat. My family stays at a hotel, so instead of going to a restaurant, I can call room service. I hope they still have room to eat. open a spa or a fitness area for us to experience.”

Rahm also wants to take advantage of this unexpected day off to help his wife take care of the children. “My wife and I have a four-month-old baby. He needs to be taken care of by his parents, so this stormy day must be a happy family day,” he said.

Smith climbed to the top of the table with 60 strokes in the penultimate round, including two missed opportunities to touch a rare 59 on the PGA Tour. “I think it’s difficult to maintain form after a round of ecstasy.

Smith won three PGA Tour cups, on August 6 hit the record for the “least putt match” in arena history with 18 putts for the whole second round of WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

Therefore, he chose to practice while playing when he did not have to play all day yesterday. Finau practices putt in his room, can have fun with chips on the carpet lining the floors. “After the third round, I brought the putter back to my room to practice more.

But that is beneficial in real combat. “, Finau shared the program “one choice, two conveniences”.
