Rahm Beats Garcia, Moves On To Knockout Round at WGC-Dell Match Play


Jon Rahm beat his fellow Spaniard, Sergio Garcia, 6 &5 in what was essentially the championship match of Group 7. Garcia, at No 7, had a tough draw getting the up-and-coming Rahm (21) as his B player, who is arguably as talented as anyone in the field, outside of maybe Dustin Johnson.

The Arizona State alum went 3-0-0 in group-play. In addition to Garcia, Rahm beat Kevin Chappell (3 &2) and Shane Lowry (2 & 1), in rounds one and two, respectively.

On the 465-yard par-4 14th, Rahm nearly holed-out for a walk off win.

Although it didn’t drop, it landed close enough where Garcia had to concede the match.
