Rahm won the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, the final event of the 2017 European Tour season.[22] He was awarded the European Tour Rookie of the Year for finishing as the highest-ranked rookie in the Race to Dubai.[23] However, his award caused a stir among fellow European Tour pros, who felt that it should've gone to a more committed member of the tour. Outside the majors and WGCs, Rahm had played just four regular season European Tour events.[24]

In late January 2017, Rahm won the Farmers Insurance Open with a 60-foot eagle putt on the final hole to notch his maiden PGA Tour title.[13] He jumped from 137th to 46th in the Official World Golf Ranking with the win, and also gained entry into the Masters Tournament, The Players Championship, the PGA Championship, and World Golf Championships events.[14] On 2 March, Rahm played in his first World Golf Championships event at the WGC-Mexico Championship where he shot rounds of 67-70-67-68 (−12) to finish T3, two strokes behind winner Dustin Johnson.[15]

It was no surprise, then, that Reed drew a poor lie in an indentation in the sand. What was surprising was what happened next: Reed took two practice swings that would face significant scrutiny over the coming hours. On the first practice swing, he placed his club on the sand behind his ball, took it club low and away, and scraped a quantity of sand from behind his ball. His second practice swing was slightly more square to the target, and as he pulled the club away he scraped an additional bit of sand out of the way. It looked pretty cut-and-dry: there had been sand in the way, and Reed cleared a path.
Kessler Karain & 9 other @PresidentsCup caddies made the two newbies Austin Johnson and G.W. Cable karaoke in 2015 Cup and called it their initiation.

Began the final round at the Copperhead Course at 5-under 208, four strokes off 54-hole leader Ryan Moore.

Following solid ups and-downs on the first two extra holes to save par and remain in the playoff, fell victim, with O'Hair, to Spieth's birdie putt on the third extra hole, No. 17. Two years earlier, defeated Spieth in sudden death at the Wyndham Championship en route to his first career PGA TOUR win.

It’s not really what players want to be doing.”


Rahm finished tied for 27th place in his first Masters and then finished 4th in the Wells Fargo Championship and joint runner-up in the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, results which lifted him into the top-10 of the World Rankings.[17][18][19] Making his debut in a European Tour event, he finished tied for 10th in the Open de France and, the following week, he earned his first European Tour victory by winning the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open by six strokes.[20]

Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship: After finishes of second, third, T4, T5 (twice) and T6, finally broke through with a win at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship on the Tour's toughest course of the year. His winning score was 6-under 278, with the field's average score 1.59-over par. Trailed South Africa's Richard Sterne by three shots with four holes to play only to find himself in a playoff after Sterne bogeyed Nos. 15, 16 and 17.

Became the fourth-youngest winner in Tour history, trailing only Jason Day, Patrick Cantlay and Danny Lee.
