Jon Rahm's wins at the US Open: an hope for all

Jon Rahm wins the US Open 2021, with a total of 278 shots and two decisive birdies in the final. The Spaniard so wins the 121st edition of the American event and he celebrates the first Major of his career. This success also allows him to come back to first place in the world ranking thus putting an end to a domination, that of Dustin Johnson.

And it is an hope for all who get the COVID-19: Rahm is healed and is back to win a major annual sports event, demonstrating how we can get out of this nasty virus. At the South Course (par 71) of the Torrey Pines Golf Course, where in January 2017 (at the Farmers Insurance Open) he took his first victory on the PGA Tour, Rahm at the 20th attempt managed to make him a Major.

Thanks to two feats signed on holes 17 and 18 (the last two), which relegated South African Louis Oosthuizen, king of The Open Championship in 2010 to second place with 279 (-5), Rahm entered the circle of big winners. And at the age of 26 years, 7 months and 10 days he established himself as the first Spaniard to win the US Open and fourth, after Severiano Ballesteros (for him 5 Majors won, three Open Championships and two Masters), Josè Maria Olazabal ( twice champion of The Masters) and Sergio Garcia (The Masters), to triumph in a Grand Slam event.

In his first victory as a dad, he dedicated the victory to his family and to a journalist who died from Covid last February. The positivity at Covid last June 5 forced the 26-year-old from Barrika to retire from The Memorial Tournament (at the end of the third round) with the trophy now in his pocket.

Rahm said: "I really believe in karma and I was sure that after that event great things would come. It's a fantastic victory, which fills my heart with pride" And that allows Rahm to move from 3 / a to the first position in the world ranking (thus regaining the top for the first time since August 2020) with a total of 9.9874 points, also thanks to Johnson's setback, 19 / or with 286 (+2) at the US Open.

For Rahm also a check for $ 2,250,000 for a total prize pool of 12,500,000, and second place in the FedEx Cup. In California, Rahm emulated Ben Hogan (1953), Jack Nicklaus (1980), Tom Watson (1982). ) as the fourth golfer at the US Open to record two consecutive birdies at 71 / a and 72 / a, taking the victory.
