Jon Rahm Wins Playoff With Ridiculous 66-Foot Putt

Jon Rahm Wins Playoff With Ridiculous 66-Foot Putt
By Balls Team

Jon Rahm won the BMW Championship after a sudden death playoff against Dustin Johnson in Chicago on Sunday.

The Spaniard sank an incredible 66-foot putt to win the tournament. It was the 25-year-old's fifth victory on the PGA Tour.

"I was just trying to hit my spot on the slope, 10 - 12 feet left of the pin and, honestly, hope that it would be a decent putt for par and keep the playoff going," said Rahm.

The putt completed what was also a remarkable turnaround for Rahm in the tournament. He had carded a five-over 75 in the first round, and was penalised a shot on Saturday for picking up his ball on the green without marking it, but shot a 64 on Sunday to place himself at the head of the leaderboard.

It had looked like Rahm was about to win the tournament in regulation until Dustin Johnson sank his own incredible putt.

The world number one landed a brilliant 43-foot birdie on the 18th which took him to four-under tied with Rahm.

"Knowing DJ and how good he has been playing, I expected nothing else," said Rahm.

"I was fully confident it was going to come into a play-off and hoping to win it.

"Never did I think I would make another 50, 60-footer, a couple of breaks in there, to end up winning it."
