Jon Rahm has never won a major championship, but it probably feels like he’s won a couple after the season he’s had on the PGA Tour. Rahm took the 2020 BMW Championship at Olympia Fields on Sunday in a surreal playoff over Dustin Johnson by closing 66-64 on the weekend at one of the toughest courses of the year.
The last 30 minutes of the tournament were completely and totally insane. Rahm finished at 4 under, and it looked like D.J. was going to come up a stroke or two short. Instead, Johnson birdied the 15th and made the 3 of the year on No. 18 by sinking an impossible 43-foot putt over a ridge and down a hill. He even offered up a fist pump. That wasn’t even close to the best putt of the day, though.
Rahm poured in a 66-footer on top of him on the same hole about 20 minutes later to end the sudden death playoff between the two best players in the world before we even got to settle in and enjoy it. A 66-footer (his longest putt on the season) to win a playoff event and nearly $2 million! Sixty! Six! Feet!
