Jon Rahm is again king of the world rankings. The Spaniard conquers his nineteenth professional victory at the Genesis Invitational 2023, but above all he returns to where he remained in four distinct periods until May 2022 for a total of 43 weeks.
-17 his final score, with -2 in the last lap which is enough to contain comebacks of various kinds; a small drop at the beginning of the second nine is promptly redeemed by the decisive birdies at 14 and 16.
Jon Rahm, results
No comeback for Max Homa, who has to be content with staying where he was on Saturday, i.e.
in second position with -15 despite a good -3 on Sunday. The lowest step of the podium goes to Patrick Cantlay, who with -14 resists the strong comeback of Will Zalaris, who despite the -13 overall takes the satisfaction of -7 of the day, proving to be the best in this final lap .
Fifth alone Keith Mitchell (-12), ahead of the two at -11 Sahith Theegala and Collin Morikawa, who precede a solitary Matt Kuchar eighth at -10. In ninth place are the other two non-Americans in the top ten, Australian Jason Day and Canadian Adam Svensson, who join former US Open winner Gary Woodland at -9.
So Scottie Scheffler is unable to stay on top for more than a week, even though he forces Rahm to win given that, in any other situation, 12th place at -8 would have given the New Jersey native permanence at the top of the ‘OWGR.
The 29th place, however, causes Rory McIlroy to drop again: the Northern Irishman will start again from the third global position. Tiger Woods doesn’t close very well, but beyond the +2 of the day, the 45th place at -1 is good news for his recovery at adequate levels compared to his fame.
