Jon Rahm wins US Open at Torrey Pines

Jon Rahm wins the 2021 US Open at Torrey Pines with two birdies on the final two holes, sinking clutch putts of 24 and 18 feet. Rahm became the first Spaniard ever to win at the US Open.

Rahms’s win capped a dramatic several weeks after Rahm was forced to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament after testing positive for Covid-19. Rahm had a 6-shot lead in that tournament following the third round, so he was able to rebound from that devastating development to come back and win the US Open. Wow!


US Open starts at Torrey Pines

The U.S. Open begins today at the iconic Torrey Pines south course. It will be a homecoming for reigning PGA champion Phil Mickelson as he’ll be playing in front of family and friends on a course he got to know as a kid. The U.S. Open is the one missing piece from Phil’s grand slam resume, and it will be fascinating to see how he does on his home course. It’s interesting to read how Mickelson hated the Rees Jones redesign of the Torrey Pines course.

Torrey Pines hosted the legendary 2008 U.S. Open when Tiger Woods won the tournament over Rocco Mediate despite having a fractured leg.

As for the odds, Mickelson is still a long shot at 50-1, while the top contenders include Dustin Johnson (16-1), Brooks Koepka (18-1) and Jordan Spieth (20-1).
