Jon Rahm won the Mexico Open ahead of Tony Finau, Brandon Wu, and Kurt Kitayama.
World No. 2 Jon Rahm won the Mexico Open on Sunday, counting for the first time on the North American PGA Tour, managing to withstand the pressure imposed by his runners-up Tony Finau, Brandon Wu, and Kurt Kitayama to the end.
In the lead since the 1st lap, the Spaniard was still two strokes ahead of the latter the day before. His card of 69 to total -15 was enough to keep him one shot ahead, but he saw Finau and Wu return an excellent 63.
He gave up and then regained the lead of the classification several times on this last lap to keep it finally by ensuring, in particular, a complicated par on the N.17.
It was a pretty stressful weekend until the end,” Rahm said after winning his seventh title on the tour, his first since the US Open last year.

Enough to give him a little confidence less than three weeks before the PGA Championship, the second round of the Grand Slam approaching.
