First Dustin Johnson, then Jon Rahm set off some fireworks on the 18th green to close out a thrilling BMW Championship.
After what was a brutal, often difficult-to-watch golf tournament, the BMW Championship finished with two spectacular golf shots, both coming on the final green at Olympia Fields.
Jon Rahm fired a special bogey-free 6-under 64 on Sunday to get into the clubhouse at 4-under par for the tournament.
A one-shot penalty on Saturday for picking up his ball without marking it was no doubt playing on Rahm’s mind.
Meaning Dustin Johnson required a birdie at the final hole to force a playoff.
After finding the rough off the tee, Johnson got his ball to the back of the green and was faced with a tricky double-breaker to extend the tournament.
So he did this.
The ensuing sudden-death playoff saw the world number one and two ranked golfers go head-to-head down the 18th hole. Rahm found the rough off the tee, and Johnson’s tee shot ricocheted off a tree back into the fairway.
Minutes later, both the would face lengthy putts from “two putts would be good range”.
Rahm, 66-feet away stole the show and took home the BMW Championship trophy with this miraculous putt.
