Jon Rahm finished second in the RBC Canadian Open and has already secured the PGA Tour card for next season. The main objective was fulfilled just by graduating from Arizona State and after that, having become a professional after the Oakmont US Open is already in the bag.
Rahm didn’t even need a month to reach his goal. In four tournaments he has made an extraordinary feat capable by few. With the second place in Canada, the Spanish golfer has accumulated more than $800,000 already, a quantity that will put him well above 125º place on the PGA Tour winnings list when he finishes the regular season. Thus, mission accomplished and still three tournaments to be played in which to seek a victory, one of which slipped out from under his fingertips this Sunday
And Rahm did everything he could to take the win. He shot an incredible 67, with five birdies and no bogeys. And he had left great options for birdies along the way on the 13th, 15th and 17th holes. Even on the 16th he was about to land a stellar lobb for eagle. He was very close, although the reality is that there is very little to beat himself up about.
Apart from the PGA Tour, Rham has now gone up among the top 150 in the world after his second place win. His debut in the PGA Tour was explosive.
Next stop: Travelers Championship in two weeks.
