The Genesis Invitational has entered the home stretch. With Jon Rahm galloping at 15-under ahead of Max Homa at 12-under, and Keith Mitchell not far behind, it looks like one of those three golfers will take home Sunday afternoon’s Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club.
Homa and Rahm, who played alongside Mitchell in Saturday’s final group, battled it out in Saturday’s third round for the best round of the day. However, late exploits from Rahm and mistakes from Homa rewarded the Spaniard with a cushion from the rest of the field going into the final 18 holes.
There are certainly big hitters right behind them, but Rahm and Homa are probably two of the top five players in the world right now. Could any of them oust their position at the top? Secure. But both? I doubt it.
It’s likely that either Homa will pick up his third win of the season or Rahm will pick up his third win of the year, and if neither of those things happen, Mitchell will likely be there to make it up to him. Of course something extraordinary could happen and Collin Morikawa or Patrick Cantlay could shoot something stupid to put pressure on the leaders. But right now it’s Rahm, Homa and kind of Mitchell…or the field. That shouldn’t change much on Sunday either.
