Jon Rahm was still com­ing to terms with his lat­est win af­ter beat­ing Dustin John­son on the first hole of a play-off in the BMW Cham­pi­onship at Olympia Fields in Chicago. A bo­gey-free six-un­der 64 had left Rahm in pole po­si­tion on four un­der be­fore John­son birdied the 15th and holed a 43-foot putt on the 18th to force a play-off. But Rahm then sunk his own mon­strous putt from 66 feet and when his Amer­i­can op­po­nent’s ef­fort fin­ished short, Rahm took the win. “I still can’t be­lieve what just hap­pened the last hour of play,” he said.

Formula One

The FIA has launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the ac­ci­dent at Sun­day’s Bel­gian Grand Prix in which Bri­tish driver Ge­orge Rus­sell es­caped un­harmed af­ter hit­ting an er­rant wheel sent hurtling when An­to­nio Giov­inazzi lost con­trol of his Alfa Romeo on lap 10. Wheel teth­ers were in­tro­duced into Formula One to pre­vent a tyre fly­ing off a car dur­ing a col­li­sion. FIA race di­rec­tor Michael Masi said: “It is a con­cern that it hap­pened. Why the wheel came de­tached, I am not 100 per cent sure, but im­me­di­ately when the car ar­rived back our tech­ni­cal team started their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”
