2019 Zurich Classic scores, grades: Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer coast in New Orleans


Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer won the Zurich Classic on Friday, but they had to wait until Sunday to get the trophy.


The duo shot 64-65-64 to open the team event in New Orleans before closing with a nerve-less 69 on Sunday for a 26-under total and a three-stroke victory over Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia.


It didn't hurt that Rahm and Palmer -- two tremendous strikers of the ball -- made every putt they looked at coming home either.


"Tommy played unbelievable," Garcia told Amanda Balionis of CBS Sports after their round before calling their last 18 holes together, "One of the easiest 68s in foursomes ever shot."


Anything can happen on the weekend -- Sam Horsfield and Ian Poulter were one stroke better than Day-Scott over the first two rounds, and they finished top 10 -- so I don't know that it's worth getting real fired up about this Australian failure.
