For the second straight week, we have another first-time winner on the PGA Tour.

Jon Rahm shot a 7-under-par final round 65 to claim his first PGA Tour victory at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Rahm shot a back nine 30, thanks to a pair of eagles at the 13th and then made a 60-foot bomb at the finishing hole to close it out and become the youngest champion in tournament history.

"Off the tee I was pretty disappointed," said Rahm about the 13th hole. "I thought there was no chance to go for it, but I got a pretty good lie, short pin and a great distance for a 4-iron. Before that I did quite a bit of work of visualizing the shot."

The Spaniard hit his second shot from the bunker onto the green and had 18 feet above the hole for eagle, which he poured in.

"I was disagreeing a little bit with my caddie about what the line was going to be, but I honestly just aimed between the two spots that we were thinking of and thank God it went in."

The 22-year-old took a one-shot lead into the 18th, after making a birdie at the 71st hole of the tournament, and played the par-5 to perfection. Rahm hit his approach to the back of the green, and then brushed in an improbable 60-foot putt.

"I really can't explain what went through my mind. I saw the replay and my reaction and I just don't even remember doing what I did," Rahm said about the emotion of seeing the putt drop for eagle.

Rahm turned professional after last year's U.S. Open and immediately gave himself chances to win at Congressional and the Canadian Open, finishing in the top three in each.

"It's really hard to be there, that's for sure."

The win also gives him an invitation to the Masters in April.
