Excuse our hyperbole, but as Jon Rahm chased his second PGA Tour title on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Championship (he would finish in fourth place, two shots behind Brian Harman), it was hard not to think of Jordan Spieth.
Rahm started the final round one shot off Patrick Reed’s lead, and found himself two strokes behind the leaders as he started the back nine. His tee shot at the par-3 10th hole ran off the back of the green — leaving him a tough pitch shot without much green to work with.
That’s when Rahm channeled the clutch gene he has shown thus far in his rookie campaign, and pulled off one of the shots of the day.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Rahm’s knack for holing out when he needs it most. The biggest example was in his first PGA Tour win at Torrey Pines — with his eagle putt at the 72nd hole.
And then there was this unbelievable hole-out chip-in by Rahm at the 13th hole at Augusta this year.
Rahm’s latest hole-out would catapult Rahm to the lead on the 11th hole, but Rahm failed to make anything happen down the stretch. Either way, Rahm showcased his world-class shot-making talent yet again at Eagle Point on Sunday.
