“I was able to finish in a great way”

Dubai-based Adri Arnaus brilliantly holed the last putt from seven meters to jump over Jon Rahm and Jorge Campillo on this second day of the World Cup at the Jumeirah Estates, and share third place with Alex Noren, three shots off the lead.

“I’m very, very happy with the first two days,” said Arnaus. “At some point I’ve gotten into trouble, but I’ve always kept my composure and I’ve been able to finish in a great way, so I’m very happy,” said the Catalan.

“I always enjoy this week. It’s a big tournament for me. I stay home and have friends and family, so it’s a really nice week,” he added. Jon Rahm, for his part, highlighted that “it was a really good round of golf.

I can’t help but think what could have been. Obviously, I played the last nine holes very well. I made good putts on 11, 13 and 14 that didn’t go in a little bit of an error on the 16th with a wedge in my hands if that drive on the 18th goes a yard to the left I’m looking to go to the green those are the things that if they happen can turn an incredible round of golf”, explained the Basque.

“But it was good, that’s all I can say. I did a lot of good things and the trend is positive. I just hope it continues to improve over the weekend,” he added. Rahm is playing for the first time since he won the Acciona Open de España last month, having finished tied for second in the BMW PGA Championship prior to that tournament.

And Barrika’s concluded: “I’m pretty tired of hearing ‘you’re having a bad year.’ It hasn’t been a bad year, two wins and a lot of top tens. The only thing that I think would have improved for me at least is to have had a shot at the majors.

At the US Open I was there, but at the other three I was non-existent. Being there on Sunday, at least having the opportunity, would have made everything a little better.” And Jorge Campillo got rid of an initial bogey to add eight birdies, five of them before the turn, in a 65 that was only surpassed by Ashun Wu as the lowest round of the day.

“It was a rough start,” Campillo said. “After that, I’ve played solid and putt a great putt, so it’s been a great day of putting. Too bad I missed the last one on 18 for eagle, but it’s been a great day of putt overall.”

Norba declared. “I got three birdies in a row and got my lap going, so I guess the momentum was with me. I know the odds are not with me and people will think I have no chance of winning, and even myself at times. But you never know,” he concluded.
