Jon Rahm continues to shine among the top golfers in the world. The golfer from Barrika finished in seventh place in the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational, third World Championship of the year, new host and new sponsor, standing in for the the long running Bridgestone Invitational, moved to TPC Southwind in Memphis.
Rahm started the tournament off with a bang. He shot a 62 in the first round, matching his best round in the PGA Tour and in the European Tour, and tying with the best first round in the history of the world championship ‘stroke play’ as well. Always leaving his mark.
He positioned himself in the lead from the very start, and he didn’t fall off the top of the rankings the entire week. Another tournament in which he was fighting for the win up until the bitter end. After his first score of 62 shots, he finished with a 71, 68 and 69, ending up in seventh place.
It’s his third top ten in the WGC after his second place in the Match Play and third place in the Mexico Championship. Thus, all he needs is a top ten in the HSBC Championship in China to achieve a very unique top ten Grand Slam in the WGCs.
This final score allowed Jon to move up one spot in the world rankings, now in seventh place, and he’s moved up to ninth in the FedEx Cup. The Spanish golfer’s next event will be the Northern Trust, precisely the first playoff of the FedEx.
Brooks Koepka took home the win in the FedEx St. Jude Invitational.
