Jon Rahm Outlasts the Field to Win 2017 Farmers Insurance Open

Jon Rahm fired a final round 65 to win the Farmers Insurance Open by 3 strokes over Charles Howell III and C.T. Pan, earning his first PGA Tour title. Rahm was 1-under on the front nine, but went 6-under over the final 8 holes, including 3-under on the final 2. Rahm made eagles at the 13th and 18th holes, including a 60 foot putt from the fringe on 18 to seal the deal. Five golfers were tied for 4th behind Howell and Pan, including 54 hole leader Patrick Rodgers. Reigning champ Brandt Snedeker finished -8, in a tie for 9th. Phil Mickelson finished -7 in a tie for 14th. Next week, the Tour heads to Scottsdale for the Waste Management Phoenix Open, where Hideki Matsuyama beat Rickie Fowler in a playoff a year ago. The 2017 field includes Jordan Spieth, Fowler, Matsuyama, Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, and Patrick Reed.
