Jon on the battle for No.1 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Jon Rahm puts his world number 1 position on the line at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, one of the events designated by the PGA Tour as the year’s golf biggest.

Because of this, it will feature a 20-million-dollar purse and, more importantly, the best players on the circuit.

Without further ado, Scottie Scheffler, who is on the heels of the ‘Lion of Barrika’ in the world rankings, is the reigning champion, while McIlroy also knows what it’s like to win at Bay Hill.

Only Tiger Woods will be missing if we refer to the 23 golfers who were financially rewarded last year by virtue of the PGA Tour’s media impact ranking.

But Tiger is always present in one form or another, all the more so since he has won eight times at Bay Hill.

“I see a lot of similarities in the courses that Tiger has done well on and, fortunately, I’ve been able to do well on most of them.,” Rahm declared.

“So, I do think this could be a good course for me.”

The 2021 US Open winner has also been asked about his mental toughness, and this led to how to face four perfect rounds.

“To win you don’t have to be doing everything perfect. I talked to Tiger about this. I asked him: of the 82 wins on the PGA Tour – I didn’t go into others – how many times do you think you played your best in all four rounds? And he said, three at the most,” he continued.

“Many of those Sundays he played his best, but the whole week, very few times.

“I mentioned US Open 2000 and British Open 2000, and he said yes. The other one, I think you can choose any of his victories in 2000.”

What Jon is most proud of at the moment is how he’s regained the world crown, battling with two remarkable opponents.

“It’s been great. There’s a lot of satisfaction when you get to be number one while your opponents have also been playing really well,” he explained.

“Scottie had a great first part of last year, Rory had a great moment right after that, and then towards the end of the year I got better. Even with Scottie winning in Phoenix, I was able to get to No. 1 right after that.

Scheffler and McIlroy are two great competitors. It’s hard to say anything about Rory that hasn’t already been said. He’s incredible when he’s on fire.”
