The Outlook

The maturity of his game might outweigh the maturity of his on-course psyche, but Rahm is still a big-time talent in search of a second career major contention. Truth be told, I’ve had this week picked out all year as a tournament that could serve as his coming-out party. Don’t be surprised if he makes a serious run at the title on a course which should suit his game.
