Rahm #5 in the world and why that's impressive

Postby Duke of Hazards » Thu Sep 14, 2017 5:58 pm

Jon Rahm
turned pro June 2016
achieved top 50 OWGR- 1/28/2017 - 222 days
top 25- 3/4/2017 - 257 days
top 5- 9/2/2017 - 439 days

Rory McIlroy
turned pro Sep 2007
top 50- 11/22/2008 - 431 days
top 25- 1/31/2009 - 501 days
top 5- 6/18/2011 - 1369 days

Jordan Spieth
turned pro Dec 2012
top 50- 8/17/2013 - 245 days
top 25- 9/21/2013 - 280 days
top 5- 3/28/2015 - 833 days

Tiger Woods
turned pro Aug 1996
top 50- 10/19/1996 - 65 days
top 25- 1/11/1997 - 149 days
top 5- 4/12/1997 - 240 days

Other notables:
Phil Mickelson - 1995 days (estimate) to OWGR top 5
Dustin Johnson - 1365 days (estimate) to OWGR top 5
Jason Day - 2779 days (estimate) to OWGR top 5

Clearly Jon Rahm is no Tiger Woods, but using this specific metric, this guy seems like he may have quite a career ahead of him.

Or perhaps it is a reflection of the fact that the current lineup of professionals at the top is like a revolving door?
Let's Play 36
GHIN Handicap: 7.8 … 9.2 … Let’s just say I am around a 14!
