A pic­to­rial re­view of the last 30 days from around the world.

23-year-old Jon Rahm picked up his sec­ond PGA Tour vic­tory at the Ca­reer-Builder Chal­lenge and passed Jor­dan Spi­eth to move to No. 2 in the Of­fi­cial World Golf Rank­ing, be­hind only Dustin John­son.

In 19 months, since June

2016, the Spa­niard has rock­eted from No. 776 in the world to No. 2. Asked af­ter his play­off vic­tory over An­drew Landry to dis­cuss his rapid as­cent up the world rank­ings, Rahm was al­most at a loss.

Rahm may only have two

PGA Tour ti­tles, but this is his fourth world­wide win in the last year, dat­ing back to last sea­son’s Farm­ers In­sur­ance Open. He also took the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and the DP World Tour Cham­pi­onship on his way to claim­ing the Euro­pean Tour’s 2017 Rookie of the Year Award. Dat­ing back to the start of last sea­son on the PGA Tour, Rahm has racked up 12 top-10s, three run­ner-ups, and two wins.
