Jon Rahm wins July Shot of the Month award

What a month for Jon Rahm! First, he gets a top-ten finish on his HNA Open de France debut, then follows that up with a sensational six-shot victory at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. And now the Spaniard can add the European Tour Shot of the Month for July to his list of recent achievements.

Fans on Twitter voted Rahm’s hole-out on the fourth hole of the final round as the Shot of the Month. The 22- year-old came top ahead of fellow Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello, as well as Ryan Fox and Marcel Siem. Over 36 percent of fans voted Rahm’s shot as the winner.

Starting the final round at Portstewart tied with American Daniel Im, Rahm found himself in the fairway on the fourth hole with a two-shot lead and an approach of 150 yards. As the rain continued to fall, the leader doubled his lead with a perfect nine iron strike.

“It was clearly a turning point,” Rahm said. “It gave me a huge boost. It changed the trajectory of the whole round. It’s a shot I will never forget.”
