Just like a gambler, the golfer Phil Mickelson does not like to be in bookmakers’ agreement always. But, now when it comes to player Jon Rahm, Mickelson could not help himself.
Mickelson strongly believes that the young player is great and he deserves his status of the player. He should get rid of the word Masters Debutante.
It has been 40 years since the player Fuzzy Zoeller became the only and the last player to win the event Augusta major at the first time of asking. However, after the brush of Rahm with glory on Sunday at the WGC Dell Match Play, his Augusta odds have fallen down to an exceptional low.
According to the reports of Ladbrokes, at 22-1, no player who has played the event for the first has fancied going into the first major of the session. World fame player, Tiger Woods in 1997 was 16-1 when he won, but he played it twice as an amateur. In 2009 the player Rory McIlroy was 33-1 and in 2014 Jordan Spieth was 40-1. All these scores speak about the standing of Rahm in the game.
When the question was asked to Mickelson about Rahm, whether he is a danger at Auguste, the response of Mickelson was clear, he said, “Yes, he is a real threat.” The player has received the best of coaching and has been groomed to play this game. Jon is a good player and now he deserves to be called as a player instead of a debutante. He has everything to emerge as professional pro and one day he will win some of the major tournaments. As far as the Augusta is concerned, then his scores were not at all bad, if compare to other legendary players of the world.
