Jon Rahm is big, strong and fearless. It should in his play at the Farmer’s Open. Coming from 67 place on Thursday, he locked up the win with a 60 foot eagle putt on the 18th hole to post a -13 and just had to wait on several groups behind him. No one made a significant move and he ended up winning by 3 strokes over Charles Howell III and C.T. Pan.
The season opener for the LPGA tour took place in the Bahamas and many of the top ranked players took the event off.
