Jon Rahm Wins Race to Dubai title, $5M payday
Jon Rahm birdied the last opening of the last occasion of the period to win the European Tour’s DP World Tour Championship and secure probably the greatest paydays in golf.
Rahm’s 4-foot birdie on the 72nd gap broke a tie with Tommy Fleetwood. And it gave him the edge over the Englishman both in the season finale and in the season-long Race to Dubai title. This means the Spaniard will leave Dubai $5 million more extravagant.
Rahm and Fleetwood were two of just five men who could have won the season-long prize this week in Dubai. And both realized that a competition title would probably work. Two years after Rahm’s competition win in Dubai gave Fleetwood the Race to Dubai praises. This time it was Rahm who caught the two trophies in the wake of shutting with a 4-under 68.
Rahm seemed to have things wrapped up ahead of schedule. Constructing a six-shot lead on account of birdies on five of his initial seven openings. In any case, a group of four intruders pursued and permitted Fleetwood and Mike Lorenzo-Vera again in with the general mish-mash as the double titles stayed available to all until the end.
“Sooner or later, will undoubtedly have some awful stretch of golf. Tragically for me, it occurred from 8 to 15 in the last round rather than prior in the competition,” Rahm said. “I’ve traveled to success previously, fortunately enough. In any case, I’ve never needed to crush out subsequent to losing a lead that way. So it was intended to be to happen this way.”
Rahm gathered $3 million for winning the competition and another $2 million as the Race to Dubai champion. While Fleetwood completed second in both. Fleetwood earned his first win of the year a week ago at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and stayed idealistic subsequent. To shut with a 65 in spite of coming up barely shy of getting Rahm.
“Couldn’t have done substantially more, truly,” said Fleetwood, who shut with five birdies in the course of the last seven openings. “Pleased truly of the manner in which I played those last hardly any gaps. Glad for the finish of the period. Also, these most recent two weeks, they simply cause the season to appear from an alternate perspective than it appeared to be two weeks prior.”
Rahm hadn’t played since winning the Open de Espana a month ago. And this denotes the first run through in quite a while vocation he has won back to back starts. The triumph is relied upon to lift Rahm to No. 3 on the planet rankings and has now won multiple times in Europe in 2019. In addition to a group title with Ryan Palmer at the Zurich Classic.
Rahm has now won multiple times on the European Tour, including four Rolex Series occasions, and he joins Seve Ballesteros as simply the subsequent Spaniard to win the European Tour’s season-long prize.
“It’s as yet something I can’t generally process at this moment. Seve’s such a symbol for us all, particularly in Spanish golf, and such a symbol for me,” Rahm said. “Whenever you can join your name to a rundown where the main name in Spanish golf is Seve Ballesteros, it’s an entirely serious deal.”
Lorenzo-Vera confronted a protracted falcon putt on No. 18 that would have tied Rahm. However, after an end standard, he completed third and missed the mark regarding his first triumph. Rory McIlroy completed fourth after a last cycle 73, while Bernd Wiesberger, who drove the Race to Dubai standings to begin the week, completed T-28 in the competition and dropped to third place in the season-long race.
