Jon Rahm (-17) finished the Tour Championship in fourth place, held at the East Lake GF in Atlanta, which, in turn, is his final ranking in the FedEx Cup.
Thus, the golfer from Barrika reached the highest ranking of his career in the PGA Tour final, surpassing his fifth place from 2017, which was his first complete year in the PGA Tour.
Rahm shot four rounds of 65-74-66-66 on Bobby Jones’ legendary home turf, and finished four shots away from Dustin Johnson, and one from Justin Thomas and Xander Shauffele. Keep in mind that he started out in the final in second place with a partial score of eight under par, according to the handicap determined by the PGA Tour based on his ranking in the FedEx.
The truth is that Jon truly shined on the Georgian course. He played an excellent game of golf, and it was only the bad round on the second day that kept him from being able to fight for the win in the FedEx Cup final. In any event, another big step forward in his career, and in the astounding evolution of his game, year after year. He had never been as close to winning a FedEx Cup as this year in the 2020 edition.
With these results, Jon has maintained his place as number two in the world, only behind Dustin Johnson. A fantastic way to finish this somewhat strange season of the PGA Tour, marked by the coronavirus. Despite just how strange this season was, Rahm has the stats to back that it was his best year in the US. He had two wins, he reached Number One in the world, he became the first Spanish player in history who has won a tournament in the Playoffs, he beat Jack Nicklaus, and has improved in practically all aspects of the game.
And he will carry all of these good sensations with him into the next challenge. None other than the US Open at Winged Foot, which will be held next week in New York.
