Rahm Wins 4th Tournament in Last 6 Starts
Jon Rahm closed with a four-under 68 to edge out rookie Davis Thompson and win the American Express Championship on Sunday evening.
This is his second victory in as many starts this year and his fourth victory in his last six starts overall.
“I’m just going to say that I’m glad I came back and won the putting contest this year. That’s all I can say,” Rahm said after the round.
The “putting contest” comment was in reference to comments that Rahm made last year about how the course was too easy and it was just a “putting contest.”
Rahm finished the tournament at 27-under par, beating Thompson by one shot.
Thompson had a chance too tie Rahm on the final hole, however, his ball hit the flag stick and bounced out.
Rahm has already pocketed $4 million this year.
