Zurich Classic report: What happened at TPC Louisiana?

Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer were too good for the field on Sunday as they converted a 54-hole lead to secure victory.

The Spaniard is undoubtedly one of the game’s brightest talents, but we’ll get to that, and his game seemed to match up perfectly with Palmer’s.

A final round featuring four birdies was enough to ensure the pair had a comfortable-three shot lead coming down the last despite a late rally from Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood.

The win is Palmer’s first for 3,388 days – he last won on tour at the Sony Open in 2010.

Crucially for the American he will receive a two-year exemption and will be teeing it up at next month’s PGA Championship.
