Rahm's loot: more than 1.4 million euros and 8 hits

The Biscayan will come out with that advantage in the final in Atlanta next week. He's already sixth on the circuit's money list this season.


Jon Rahm's tremendous triumph in the BMW Championship comes with two sweet bonuses. The first is economic, and is that Rahmbo's check at Olympia Fields (USA) amounts to 1,710,000 dollars (just over 1.4 million euros). In total, the Biscayan has already pocketed nearly six million dollars so far this season, the sixth most in the entire PGA.

The other reward comes in the form of a lead to the final of the circuit, which will take place from Thursday at the East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta. Rahm will start 8 strokes clear from his second-ranked position in the FedExCup rankings. Two strokes away he will have Dustin Johnson, the leader on that list who will start at -10, and behind the rest of the peloton, who will receive a positive handicap from -6 depending on his position.

DJ also took 1,026,000 dollars (about 860,000 euros) from the BMW with his second place, making him the second player who has raised the most this year, more than 5.8 million dollars (4.8 euros) only behind Justin Thomas with 7.2 (6 euros) .

Third parties were the Chilean Niemann and the Japanese Matsuyama, creditors of $ 551,000 (462,000 euros). The American Tony Finau, fifth, was made with 384,750 dollars (322,000 euros). Lanto Griffin and MacKenzie Hughes closed the top-10 with $ 247,000 (€ 207,000) .
