All European fans expect a lot from the world number one, the Basque Jon Rahm, who reaches his second consecutive Ryder, now with the stripes of the best player in the world in the ranking, although he only wants to lead on the field.
“We have many players who can take the leadership of this team, although I hope that I can speak with the clubs & rdquor ;, commented the one from Barrika, in the media spotlight on Whistling Straits.
Ensures the Spanish does not arrive with pressure but with the illusion of being able to play a great role and help win Europe this Ryder, which would be the second in a row after doing it as a rookie in Paris in 2018. “Here it is about teamwork, in the pairs that we will form in the morning. I want to enjoy it, with the added bonus of being surrounded by great players & rdquor ;, he said.
A very special year
For Jon it has been a very special year, where he achieved his first ‘Major’ at the US Open, and became a father just half a year ago. “It’s been five and a half months since I became a father and a lot has happened,” he explained.
Apart from what happened with the covid19, the good times of joy outweigh the bad ones. I have nothing to complain about. It has been an incredible year and a victory at Ryder it would be a good season finale, & rdquor; he said. “Winning in America would be very special and I hope to be a Ryder player for a long time.”
He recognized that it is not difficult for any professional to go from the usual individual game on the Tour to form a team and go out to play in pairs. “It is wonderful to be next to these great players, with a smile on their lips. I wish the whole world could see it. The excitement of this competition is unique& rdquor ;.
With much trust
He said that “the number one in the world gives you confidence, I will try to do my best and I see myself capable of doing it. But other players like Poulter, who may not be at the top of the world rankings, they transform and are more dangerous than anyone else. “
Regarding personal preparation for the appointment, he assured that “I am physically well, I will have no problem walking 36 holes. You have to learn to relax in some moments in five hours of competition. I will try to hydrate myself well and get enough sleep & rdquor ;.
