This talented Spaniard continues to shine on the PGA Tour.
Forgetting his missed cut at the Memorial Tournament, what Rahm has done this season is nothing short of exemplary. Since winning the Farmers Insurance Open in January, he’s logged five top-10 finishes in his last eight events, counting that missed cut.
Earning $4.5 million this season (fifth on tour), he’s averaging under 70 strokes per round and under two putts per green in regulation.
Rahm was the leading amateur finisher in last year’s U.S. Open, tying for 23rd place. He finished in a tie for 27th at the Masters in April. Now that he’s got a few major championships under his belt, we fully expect the Arizona State product to challenge for a top-10 finish this weekend, if not quite a bit better than that.
