CM – Defending champion Jon Rahm is rewarded with an ace for taking the lead at Memorial

Jon Rahm cracked the par-3 16th, a controversial hole in his win last year, to take the memorial lead through 36 holes.

The Spaniard returned to Muirfield Village early Saturday to complete his weather-related second round and put the finishing touches on his eventful 65 that brought him to the top of the Memorial.

Cream is late Birdie the 13th hole par 4 on Friday when the game was interrupted by the dark. When he returned on Saturday, he bogeyed # 14 and was one shot off the lead when he hit on the 16th.

« I didn’t think a ball that landed just short of the pin would go in, just because he comes so high from the raised tee and the greens are soft, ”Rahm said of his 8-iron tee that ricocheted twice before entering the hole. « You can see my surprised face because I was pretty sure the ball would be about four feet behind the hole. »

Rahm has a complicated relationship with the 16th hole in Muirfield Village. During the final round of last year, he extended his lead over Ryan Palmer, but after a video review it was found that he was moving his ball in the rough before hitting his chip and he was punished with two strokes. Rahm also won the event with the penalty.

« I said [Caddy Adam Hayes] I went downstairs after picking up the ball, I’m, well, that’s good karma and a payback from last year « said Rahm.
