Jon Rahm on Sunday became the first Spanish champion of the US Open, held at Torrey Pines Field in San Diego, California.
The golfer performed 67 shots, making five birdies and one mistake. Rahm also did a birdie with mid-distance putts on holes 17 and 18.
The Spaniard ended one stroke ahead of South African golfer Louis Oosthuizen. The latter had a two-stroke advantage at one point during the final round, but made bogies on the 11th and 17th holes.
