There was plenty of drama this week in golf. A young Spaniard walked away with some serious hardware, a chip-in eagle snagged a tour card, and a controversial golfer was back at it on Twitter.

Here are this week's winners and losers from the world of golf:


Dream season

Jon Rahm capped his freshman season by picking up the Sir Henry Cotton award as the European Tour's Rookie of the Year on Tuesday. Rahm wasn't a tour member when he started the season, but ended his campaign Sunday, claiming the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai with a bogey-free 67 for a one-shot victory.

"An incredible week," Rahm told "I would not be more proud of what I've done this week."

Qualifying in style

Jazz Janewattananond earned his European Tour card this week in amazing fashion at Lumine Golf Club in Spain. The 21-year-old came to the 108th hole of the tournament needing an eagle at the par-5 18th to get inside the top 25 in order to qualify. Janewattananond not only got his eagle, but did it by chipping in from off the green to secure a job on the European Tour in 2018.
