Jon Rahm celebrates holing an eagle putt on the 72nd hole to win the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open.
Rahm announced his talent to the golfing world at last year's US Open -- winning the coveted low amateur award. The Spaniard finished in a tie for 23rd place.
Rahm enjoys a joke with fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia who finally clinched his first major title at the Masters tournament in April.
World No. 1 Dustin Johnson shakes hands with Rahm after winning the final match of the World Golf Championships Match Play at the Austin Country Club in March 2017.
Rahm in action at this year's Masters -- his first appearance at Augusta National. The 22-year-old finished in a tie for 27th.
Sergio Garcia with the Masters trophy. The Spaniard's first major win came on what would have been Seve Ballesteros' 60th birthday. Ballesteros, a two-time winner at Augusta National, died of cancer in May 2011 aged 54.
