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 final hole, after making a birdie at the 71st hole of the tournament and played the par-5 18th 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. It's hard to explain, but just to get into that position, it's so hard and I am so blessed
