Started 2017, his first full season as a professional, 137th in the world, but in under two years made it all the way to second and on his Ryder Cup debut in September defeated Tiger Woods in the singles as Europe romped to victory.

Jon Rahm 

He had won the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open in 2017 with a closing 60-foot eagle putt, finished third and second in his first two World Golf Championships, then stormed to a six-stroke victory at the Irish Open. Top seven placings in all four FedEx Cup play-off events were followed by a one-stroke victory at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. Won his second PGA Tour title at the 2018 CareerBuilder Challenge, beating Andrew Landry in a play-off, then was fourth in the Masters and the PGA Championship as well as winning his home Spanish Open.

As an amateur he reached world No1 and his 23 under par 263 at the 2014 world team championship was six strokes better than the previous record set by Jack Nicklaus in 1960. In December added the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas by four strokes.
