I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period," said the Spaniard Rahm. Spieth added: "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.
I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value."
