Jon Rahm admitted he's grown tired of hearing he's had "an off year" despite conceding his frustration at not being more competitive at the majors.
Speaking after his second round of the DP World Tour Championship - where he carded 66 on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates - the former World No. 1 admitted the high standards he sets himself has perhaps changed the perception of where he is at.
Rahm won twice in 2022. He won the Mexico Open on the PGA Tour and he also joined Seve Ballesteros in becoming only the second player to win his home Open three times.
He said there has also been some huge life changes, too, that have also had an impact on his performance on the course.

Frustratingly for Rahm he finished T-27 at The Masters, T-48 at the PGA Championship, T-12 at the U.S. Open and T-34 at the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews.
That's not what you expect to see from Rahm. Even he admitted that in three majors this year he was "non-existent".
Rahm told the media in Dubai when asked how he would assess his 2022:
