Jon Rahm: Nobody can beat me when I’m at my best

Jon Rahm stated he’s heading to the Masters next month with “a lot of confidence” and believes nobody can beat him when he’s firing on all cylinders.

The Spaniard recently became World No. 1 for the fifth time in his career following five wins in his last nine worldwide starts.

With the first Major of the year now just weeks away, the 28-year-old revealed he’s heading to Augusta National with high hopes following a superb run of form.

“It’s a pretty big event,” said Rahm. “I don’t know if you can feel any different to what it usually is, right?

“I think obviously I’m going to go in with a lot of confidence given what I’ve done already this year.

“I don’t think anything needs to be done differently. Clearly what I’m doing rights now works, so there’s no reason to emphasize anything just because it’s Augusta National.

“You got to go out there and perform and hopefully I can get that done as well.”

Rahm is already the third different World No. 1 of 2023 following on from Rory McIlroy and more recently, Scottie Scheffler.

All three players have already won this year with a huge amount of competition vying for the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings.

When Rahm was asked if he thinks anyone can beat him when he’s firing all cylinders, he responded: “No.”

“The thing is, you don’t need to be firing on all cylinders to win.

“I actually had a conversation similar to this with Tiger. I asked him, ‘out of the 82 wins on the PGA TOUR, how many times do you think you played your best all four days?’

“He said, ‘three at most’. Right? A lot of those Sundays he played his best, but the whole week, very few.”

The Masters is set to take place from April 6 to April 9 with Rahm bidding to become just the fourth Spaniard to ever win the event.
