The Spaniard's dramatic defeat of world No. 1 Dustin Johnson at the BMW Championship could be the start of something big ... or maybe not. Hawk & Purk sort it out
Is this Jon Rahm's breakout moment? Co-hosts John Hawkins and Mike Purkey review the PGA Tour's second FedEx Cup playoff event, the BMW Championship, which featured one of the greatest finishes you’ll ever see in what Purkey called “back-to-back Hail Marys” from Dustin Johnson and eventual winner Rahm amid a U.S. Open-like setup. “The best players in the world need to be tested,” Purkey said. “… That said, you don’t want to see that every week, because it would beat the hell out of those guys,” a comment that got a rise out of Hawkins. Hawk & Purk also take a peek at this week’s regular-season finale in Atlanta, the Tour Championship, which Purkey rips as a "gimmick" and "a handicap tournament" while Hawkins applauds his sidekick for finally seeing the light.
