Jon Rahm is firing out of the gate in 2023 and winning back-to-back starts.

In the final round of 68 on the PGA West’s Stadium Course, Rahm secured victory for American Express, defeating PGA Tour rookie Davis Thompson by one shot. The title follows Rahm’s victory at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, his first event on the PGA Tour of the calendar year, and his second victory at the Lahe Quinta. The Spaniard won the event (and then the CareerBuilder Challenge) for the first time in 2018.

Rahm’s ball-strikes have been consistent all week, with two 64s on Thursday and Friday followed by a solid 65 to take the lead in the final round on Sunday.
