Jon Rahm wins 121st US Open
After what can only be described as rollercoaster of emotions over the past month for Jon Rahm, he came out victorious at the US Open winning by one shot ahead of Louis Oosthuizen.
The Spaniard was in the form of his life when he was six strokes ahead at the Memorial golf tournament at Muirfield Village. However he had to withdraw from the tournament due to a positive coronavirus test after 54 holes. His period of self-isolation limited his preparations for the US Open, however that seemed to not have any affect on his performance, as 15 days later he lifted the US Open trophy.
