Settles for T3 with cold putter Rahm finished in a tie for third place after shooting a four-under 66 in the final round of the Open Championship.
Impact Rahm was the betting favorite this week after claiming his first major championship last month at the U.S. Open. He got off to a slow start, however, shooting one-over in the first round. Rahm got back into the thick of things after a 64 in round two and a 68 in round three. He was going to need a very special round and some help to have a chance on Sunday. Rahm gave himself so many great chances for birdies over the weekend, but burned more edges than anyone. He was literally about a foot in total either direction from being four shots better and being in a playoff. Nevertheless, Rahm reclaimed the top spot in the OWGR and is in a great position heading into the close of the season.
