Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, began his career at the Spanish Golf Open on Thursday at the Villa de Madrid Country Club with a record of 63 strokes (-8), equaling his own record on the course Madrid, in which the Englishman Ross McGowan shone, who with 61 (-10) made the best historical mark.

Rahm, who shared a group with the Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, also a member of the European Ryder Cup team in Wisconsin, and with the Frenchman Víctor Pérez, felt from the first moment the warmth of the Madrid public, who encouraged him to conclude the first day with a record of -8, “a brand that he would have signed before starting,” as he said at the end of his participation in the first day.
