Not even one month as a professional and Matthew Wolff is a PGA Tour winner! The 20 year sensation with the Eamon Darcy-esque swing only made his professional debut at the Travelers Championship in June and two events later he's the winner of the 3M Open.

Wolff left Oklahoma State early but will go down as one of the school’s most decorated players ever, winning the 2019 individual title at the NCAA Championship and then being honored with the Fred Haskins and Jack Nicklaus Awards. TaylorMade were quick to sign Wolff to a 14 club deal having also secured a deal with California's Collin Morikawa.

Interestingly both Wolff and Morikawa were paired together in the final group yesterday, with Morikawa finishing in a tie for second with Bryson DeChambeau.

But what a way to seal your first win. One shot behind watching your 26 foot eagle putt drop on the final hole is the stuff of dream.  And a clearly shocked DeChambeau looking on in disbelief was the cherry on top!

A non Tour member playing on an invite, the 20 year old is now fully exempt on the PGA Tour through 2021, and is now in the FedExCup Playoffs race.


How He Did It

Using his TaylorMade M5 driver Wolff hit 38 fairways for the week including 10 of 14 in his final round and averaged 303.8 yards.  Gaming TaylorMade P750 Tour Proto irons the 20 year old hit 60 greens in regulation including 17 on Sunday posting a Strokes Gained Tee to Green clip of 5.36. In total he took 115 putts with his TaylorMade Spider X Tour putter to post one eagle and 26 birdies against seven bogeys.

Congrats Jon Rahm

A European Tour event like no other you've seen.  A links course that started and finished in the centre of a village. A party atmosphere with thousands of people lining the fairways by day and the streets by night. Fireworks on the beach.  An early cameo by Harrington. A whisker from a 59 by Rock. And a star winner in Jon Rahm. That was the 2019 Irish Open.

Cometh the hour cometh the Rahm as the Spaniard, starting the day five shots back, powered up the leaderboard with a final round of 62 to finish two shots clear of Andy Sullivan and Bernd Wiesberger.

Key to Rahm's success was a back nine charge with an eagle on 12 and bridies on 14, 15, and 16 punctuated by a dropped shot on 14.

Rahm has now finished Win-T4-Win at the Irish Open over the past three years and all thoughts now turn to the Open in Royal Portrush in two weeks time where he's listed at odds of 18/1.


How He Did It

Jon Rahm hit a total of 33 fairways for the week with his TaylorMade M5 driver (ranking T4 in the driving accuracy stats) averaging 308.9 yards.
