Jon Rahm Returns to No. 1 After Winning Genesis Invitational

Jon Rahm managed to beat tough competition to win the Genesis Invitational, but this wasn’t the only thing he was celebrating in California. The Spanish golfer managed to return to no. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings following the 10th PGA Tour win of his career. Rahm has been on fire since the beginning of the year, and this marks his third PGA Tour win of 2023, following the Sentry Tournament of Champions and the American Express. He managed to score another win in Los Angeles after beating Max Homa by two strokes. This win carries a lot of weight for Rahm because it’s his tenth PGA Tour title, meaning he’s one PGA Tour ahead of his idol and fellow Spanish golfer Seve Ballesteros. "Beating Seve, I know he didn't play full time on the PGA Tour… but still, to reach that milestone of double-digit wins is pretty incredible. And to do it at a golf course with this legacy, this history and hosted by the man himself, Tiger Woods, it's a true honor," said Rahm. This win also puts Rahm atop the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time since March 2022, with Scottie Scheffler in the close second spot.
