It came down to the very last putt at the U.S. Open on Sunday. With rounds of 69, 70 and 72, Jon Rahm had already put himself well into position to be in the mix for the final stretch at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California. However, competition was close, and it was not until a birdie at the second-to-last 17th that he would tie for the lead. Now everything hinged on that final hole.
After his second shot on the par-5 18th had found the sand trap though, he needed to stay calm and employ the right strategy – which he did. The safe shot onto the green may have left him with a putt well over five metres, but he managed to sink it and become a major champion.
