Jon Rahm won the BMW Championship

John Rahm scored a birdie from nearly 20.1 meters to beat Dustin Johnson in the final pit, winning the BMW Championship on 30/8.
The last round at Olympia Fields, par70 recorded Rahm hitting 64 strokes, breaking the recent record of top of the league achievement – 66 strokes – which he himself set in the penultimate round. Meanwhile, Johnson finished 18 holes with 67 strokes. Due to the same finish at -4, both must decide whether to win or to lose at 18 par4, 498 yards.
At the beginning of this hole, Johnson kicked the ball unexpectedly into the tree on the left and then was thrown back to the fairway. Rahm also went in that direction, but passed the top then scored 366 yards. Both went green after the second shot, but Johnson had an advantage over Rahm because his position was closer to the hole. With the further ball position, Rahm putt kicked the ball first. Standing 20.1 meters away from the target’s mouth, he chooses the left putt. Rahm rolled the clubface with enough force, made the ball roll to the top of the slope, and then down and straight into the crater to collect the birdies. And Johnson sucessfully hit par after two putts.
“I know that DJ is good and has been in top form recently. But when I play the playoffs with him, I have a lot of confidence. To be honest, I just hope that putt will help me keep par to hold onto the back hole. Luckily the ball was on the right track, especially at the last three meters. It’s unbelievable that I won with that.” Rahm said at the ceremony.
In the penultimate round, Rahm reached par in hole 5. But his real point was bogey for a one-stroke penalty for forgetting to mark the ball spot on the green. That was Rahm’s only bogey for the two weekends. If he did not have that error, he would have won after 72 standard holes.
