Former Sun Devil became the #1 golfer in the world over the weekend

Over the weekend, former Sun Devil, 25-year-old Jon Rahm became the #1 golfer in the world at the Memorial in Ohio.

Rahm graduated from ASU in 2016 and since then has been on the up and up. While at ASU the golfer earned 11 collegiate wins during his four years as a Sun Devil. This is second only to Phil Mickelson's 16. According to (LINK), during 2012-2015 Rahm lead the NCAA in eagles with 32 and he was also a 2-time PING All-American and Ben Hogan Award winner.

The former Sun Devil was off to an early 8 stroke lead Sunday and was able to finish the job for his fourth PGA Tour victory. Rahm shot a 69-67-68-79 over the four days to put together the three-stroke win. 

Rahm told ESPN (LINK),  "One of the best performances of my life ... Yesterday was probably one of the best rounds of my life and finished today with some clutch up-and-downs. As a Spaniard, I'm kind of glad it happened that way.''
