The PGA Tour recently stopped in California for the CareerBuilder Challenge, which concluded on January 21 at the PGA West Stadium Course. Jon Rahm, who won the four-day tournament, faced considerable competition from the likes of John Huh, Martin Piller, Adam Hadwin, and Andrew Landry. In fact, it took Rahm four playoff holes to overcome the challenge from Landry in what was the longest playoff required in the annual tournament since John Cook emerged victorious in a five-way playoff in 1992.

Rahm's fate was in his own hands during the last four holes of the final round, but he missed three short birdie putts and, in turn, allowed Landry to capitalize and force a playoff. On the fourth playoff hole, Rahm made a 12-foot putt for birdie, while Landry missed from just about the same distance. With the win, Rahm became the fourth Spaniard to reach the No. 2 ranking in the world alongside Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia, and Jose Maria Olazabal.
