Rahm’s stunning 63 heaps pressure || رحیم کا شاندار 63 ہیپس پریشر

After rounds of 74 and 70 on Friday, Rahm, 28, narrowly missed failing to make the cut. But he quickly recovered, coming within one shot of matching the lowest score in major championship history. He exclaimed, “That’s the best round on a links course I’ve ever played.”

Rahm’s first round at Royal Liverpool was marred by frustration at the course’s 82 punishing bunkers, and his second round saw him squeak into the weekend at two over par after missing four short putts. The Spaniard, who is vying for his third major, continued, “It feels really good, but there’s a lot of work to do tomorrow.” With a spectacular second round of 65 at six under par on Saturday, Harman, who is ranked 26th in the world, surged away from the competition and moved to 10 under Rahm’s stunning 63 heaps pressure on leader Harman.

He struggled to get going on Saturday, making bogeys on two of his first four holes. However, he recovered, making birdies on the fifth and ninth holes to regain a four-shot lead. Harman was having to deal with boisterous encouragement from playing partner Tommy Fleetwood, who is attempting to become the first Englishman to win the Claret Jug since Nick Faldo in 1992. Fleetwood is from Southport, which is only 48 kilometres from Hoylake.

Fleetwood made a birdie at the second hole but bogeyed the tenth to fall back into a group of five players at five under. Victor Hovland, the fifth-ranked golfer in the world, recorded a 66 to keep himself in the running for his first major championship. Rory McIlroy, the second-ranked golfer in the world, moved to four under after taking three shots in the first five holes, which gave the large crowds cheering for the Northern Irishman hope that he could end a nine-year major drought.

After a 72, Brooks Koepka, the PGA Championship victor, is also four over par.
