Jon Rahm triumphs at the “2023 Masters” after defeating Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka

Spanish player Jon Rahm defeated American Brooks Koepka on the thrilling final day to win his first “Masters.” Rahm maintained his composure and patience.

Rahm, 28, fired a three-under 69 to finish on 12 under par and won by four shots over Koepka, who had a two-shot lead going into the final round.

Koepka tied for second place with seasoned golfer Phil Mickelson after shooting a spectacular seven-under 65 to finish eight under par.

The top performer from Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Matt Fitzpatrick, and the defending champion, Scottie Scheffler, both completed a group on four under. Rahm became the “fourth Spanish player to win the Masters,” and his triumph came on the tragic

Seve is a significant figure in the game’s history, which is one of the main reasons I play. It was really significant for me to complete it on the 40th anniversary of his second Masters victory and on his birthday.

After a strong year leading up to the first men’s major of the season, Rahm was one of the pre-tournament favourites, as renowned two-time winner Seve Ballesteros, who won in 1980 and 1983, would have turned 66.

Rahm had the form and history to win at Augusta, and he dutifully delivered. Rahm has three PGA Tour victories this year, as well as four top-10 finishes in his previous six Masters appearances.

He recorded an opening round score of 65 and subsequently posted scores of 69, 73, and 69. Rahm displayed all parts of his exceptional all-around game, especially his consistently massive driving and nerveless putting.

Rahm not only captured the coveted Green Jacket for the first time but also reclaimed the top spot in the world rankings. After the ball landed 150 yards off the tee and bounced back into play, the player kept his cool to lay up and knock a beautiful chip to within a few feet for an unconventional par.

Rahm looked up to the skies after making his final putt and shook his closed hands.

His wife Kelley, two boys, Kepa and Eneko, and other family members soon joined him on the 18th green before he received additional congratulations from them. Among them was Rahm’s tutor and fellow countryman Jose Maria Olazabal, a second-time winner of the Masters.
