Jon Rahm hails Tiger Woods defeat as "the best feeling of my life"

Jon Rahm claimed beating Tiger Woods in the singles in his first Ryder Cup was “the best feeling of my life” – and the Spaniard dedicated his win to Seve Ballesteros.

The world No.8 lost his first two fourball matches but never trailed to the former world No.1.

And despite missing a short putt on 16, he sealed the win with a nerveless birdie on 17 to spark an emotional celebration.

“That was for Seve,” he said. “That was for him, not for me. That was for him. It’s a lot going on for me right now, to be honest. Memory of Seve, many people.

"My grandfather, who would love to be here right now, who passed away at the PGA, was my biggest fan.


“And to beat Tiger, one of the greatest, if not the greatest, on the Sunday, with a pivotal point, it’s the best feeling of my life.

“So much was going through my mind. I’m playing against arguably the scariest player in history, the best player in history on a course that suits him pretty well because he doesn’t have to hit many drivers and he putts pretty well. It’s not like the odds are in my favour; I like to hit driver. I had to play my best golf and I did.

“After what happened on 16, and to come back on 17 and do what I did is really special.”
