Jon Rahm Wins the Third Round of the Genesis Invitational

Jon Rahm Wins: Rahm, a Spanish parbuster, moved one round closer to recapturing the World 31 ranking when he claimed the third round lead at the US PGA Tour Genesis Invitational held at the Riviera on Saturday. For a 54-hole total of 15-under 198, the World No3 shot a 6-under-par 65 in round 3. Max Homa is the overnight leader, carding a 69. He is three shots behind Mitchell. Kevin Mitchell finished third, one stroke behind Max Homa who shot a 69. After his big round, the Spaniard is closer to capturing his third US PGA Tour championship this year. Golf experts betting predict that he will win the title and climb to World #1 at the end of the tournament.

Jon Rahm Fresh Start

Jon Rahm began the round by making a tap-in birdie on the first hole. To reach the back-nine, Rahm rolled in birdies on the fourth, eighth, and ninth holes. He was at 14-under after he took the lead in the 11th hole, with a birdie. At the 18th hole, he finished the round with a 23-foot birdie. Homa maintained the pressure on Rahm’s surging pace, with birdies at the third, sixth and 10th holes, and tied the Spaniard for first. He fell in the 15th hole and 16th holes, where he made back-to-back birdies. After victories at La Quinta in California and the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, the Spaniard will be looking to win a third title of this year. He is now just 18 holes away from replacing Scottie Scheffler as World #1 after Rory McIlroy won the Phoenix Open.

The Hot Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods, a 15-time major champion, also enjoyed a fantastic day. The American, who was barely able to make the cut Friday, played one of his best rounds since he recovered from the right leg injuries sustained in a car accident in February 2021. For a total 54-hole score of 3-under 210, he carded a 4-under par 67 in the third round. Six other players are tied for 26th. He was tied for 26th with six others. With a total of 203 rounds and 204 respectively, Gary Woodland (67), and Patrick Cantlay (68), Americans are in fourth- and fifth place.

Three Signees for LIV Golf

Three additional par busters have signed up to the LIV Golf League’s latest season, which will start next week.
These are Danny Lee from New Zealand, Thomas Pieters from Belgium and Brendan Steele from the United States. According to reports, Lee and Steele are moving to the Saudi-backed series. This series has attracted other top talent due to its 54-hole events, USD25-million purses, and is supported by Saudi Arabia. The 31-year old Belgian was a six-time European Tour winner and was considered for Europe’s Ryder Cup spot. Lee, 32, a South Korean-born New Zealander, was granted citizenship in 2008. He won the 2015 US PGA Greenbrier Classic and the Johnnie Walker Classic a year later. Steele, 39 years old, is a three-time winner of the PGA Tour. His last title was in 2017, at the Safeway Open. LIV Golf’s entry of these three players will add drama to an already existing circuit, which is home to stars such as Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson.
