With rounds of 66-67-63-66, Rahm finished five shots clear of 2nd place and has planted himself firmly on top of the Race to Dubai rankings.

Earlier this year, Rahm switched to the TP5 for more spin and control with his mid irons and approach shots to the green, as well as the new Spider X putter for more consistency on the greens.
