Rahm Emerges Victorious As He Secures US Open Trophy

Ben Hogan. Jack Nicklaus. Tom Watson. Jon Rahm. The Spanish golfer ascended to an elite level on Sunday by showcasing his brilliance en route to claiming the US Open title. In his maiden major triumph, the standout player birdied the last two holes to reach a score of -6, elevating himself among the top 4 contenders who managed to score so late in the tournament. Amidst a day of fluctuating fortunes and numerous mistakes at Torrey Pines, it was Rahm who exhibited the steadiest composure, capitalizing on his opportunities when it mattered most.

Converting a 17-footer on the 17th green, Rahm then sank an 18-foot putt on the final hole to conclude his round. Louis Oosthuizen emerged as the sole contender to challenge him, falling short by just one stroke as he needed an eagle on the last hole which eluded him. Rahm’s impressive performance came shortly after he squandered a six-shot lead at the Memorial Tournament after contracting Covid-19 and being forced to withdraw. Harris English secured third place, while a trio consisting of Guido Migliozzi, Brooks Koepka, and Collin Morikawa tied for fourth in an eventful and spectacular day in California.
