A positive Covid-19 test cut Jon Rahm’s week short at the Memorial, which is a shame considering the putting performance he put on during the third round with an Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S putter that was making its Tour debut.
Rahm needed just 14 putts on the back nine en route to a third-round 64 that stretched his lead to six shots. The performance on the greens was a welcomed sight for Rahm, who ranked outside the top 100 in SG: Putting entering the week.
“He’s been struggling for a little bit now,” said Odyssey Tour rep Joe Toulon. “He just hasn’t been making those 8- to 10-footers that he normally makes to keep a round going, keep the momentum going. He wanted something to match his stroke with what he’s doing now. His stroke mechanics have changed a little bit and he wanted to get back to a different feel.”
