In a battle of the world’s top two players in the BMW Championship, Joe Rahm made a 66-foot putt for birdie on the 18th hole to topple world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who had made a 43-footer to force the playoff and then watched his 30-footer to extend the extra session to a second hole finish one inch to the right.
“I still can’t believe what just happened,” Rahm said of his miracle putt. “I think we all want the flashy finish, but not the stress that comes with it.”
66 FEET for the WIN! 🏆
