Rahm's Wild Day Ends With Memorial Win And No. 1 Ranking

Jul 20, 2020

Jon Rahm is No. 1 in the world with his victory in the Memorial on a Sunday with far more drama than he would have liked.

Rahm had an eight-shot lead at the turn. It was down to three shots with three holes to play. And then the Spaniard holed a flop shop from behind the 16th green that would have made Spanish idol Seve Ballesteros proud.

It gave him a birdie, which later was changed to a bogey because it was deemed he slightly moved the ball before the shot. It didn't affect the outcome. He won by three.

On Sunday, Jack Nicklaus says he and wife Barbara tested positive for the coronavirus at the onset of the pandemic. Nicklaus says he and wife Barbara stayed at home in Florida from about March 13 until they were “done with it” on April 20.

He says he had a sore throat and a cough, while Barbara had no symptoms of COVID-19. Both turned 80 earlier this year.

Nicklaus says given their age, they were “a couple of the lucky ones.”

Nicklaus says they have tested positive for antibodies.
