Up at number three we have the ever-impressive rookie, Jon Rahm. The 22-year-old Spaniard has shown he has what it takes to compete with the best in the world, no matter the stage. Like Justin Rose, Rahm has only played in three RTD point events so far this year, all of which were either The Masters or WGC events.

In his two WGC events, Rahm has racked up two top-five finishes, as well as a T-27 finish at The Masters. (Had it not been for a few slip-ups on Masters Sunday, Rahm could have finished much higher on the list, perhaps even contended for the title.) His T-3 and solo second-place finishes at the WGC events have earned him well over one million Race to Dubai points, and those tournaments will be important going forward if Rahm is to make a move up the list, perhaps even into the top spot.

Rahm is definitely a player to keep an eye on moving forward. He seems to excite golf fans at almost every tournament he starts. Rahm already has his first pro win, which he earned earlier this year on the PGA TOUR. Although the season is not yet halfway finished, look out for Rahm to make a run at the RTD title.
