Busy Weekend for PGA and LPGA
Final round coming to an end
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Spaniard Jon Rahm eagled two of his final six holes to win the PGA's Farmers Insurance Open by three shots over Charles Howell III and C.T. Pan.
Rahm closed with a 5-under 67 that was capped by a 60-foot eagle putt from the back fringe of the par-5 18th. The 22-year-old became the youngest tournament champion and the first player in 26 years to get his initial PGA Tour title at Torrey Pines.

Americans Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller were third and fourth respectively.
