Jon Rahm carded a final-round 75 to claim victory at the Memorial Tournament along with the No.1 spot in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Rahm finished his final day at Muirfield Village Golf Club with 12 pars, two birdies, three bogeys, and a double to sign for a 9-under par total, three clear of Ryan Palmer (74).
The win was Rahm’s first of the 2020 season, and fourth of his PGA Tour career. He also has five European Tour titles, as well as a win at the unofficial Hero World Challenge (2018).
Along with the Memorial’s iconic glass trophy, the 25-year old Spaniard earned $1,674,000 and 500 FedExCup points. He also secured 72 first-place OWGR points to move to No. 1 in the world rankings for the first time in his young career.
Palmer, meanwhile, earned $1,013,700 and 300 FedExCup points for his solo second-place finish. The 43-year old Texas native also secured 45.6 OWGR points to move into the top 50 (No. 40) for the first time since 2015.
