Another week, another shot at glory for Jon Rahm.
Rahm on June 5 appeared primed to win his first PGA Tour event of the 2021 season at the Memorial Tournament, heading into the final round with a six-stroke lead over the rest of the field. But “Rambo” was notified as he walked off the course that he had tested positive for COVID-19, forcing him to withdraw from competition ending any chance at his first win since the 2020 Memorial Tournament in July of that year.
The world No. 3 golfer and lone favorite heading into the 2021 U.S. Open this week confirmed on Saturday he has been cleared to compete at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego:
