Villa de Madrid Country Club. 8:02 am on Thursday, first day of the Acciona Open de España. No player has left the tee and the tournament announces that all parking spaces are sold for the four days. ‘Sold out’ for cars. The day is opening in Madrid and many people climb the steep slope to reach the exit of the 10 tee, the starting point of the great culprit that on a weekday golf fans are eager to see their idol play.

Jon Rahm has revolutionized golf and aspires to be one of the great references of Spanish sport in the coming years. The humility of the León de Barrika (26 years old) makes him consider himself far from myths like Fernando Alonso, Pau Gasol or Rafa Nadal, but the reality is that he is sitting at the same table and with the future ahead to take the flag. Dozens of people stood along the 10th hole at 9:30 a.m. on a weekday. Rahm was going to hit his first ball in pursuit of his third win at the Spanish Open.
