Dunne misses out as Rahm wins Open de Espana

Dunne misses out as Rahm wins Open de Espana”

The 23-year-old, in his first appearance at the Open, becomes the sixth Spanish golfer to win the tournament since it became a European Tour event in 1972.

The three top finishers were tied for the lead on three occasions, but Rahm held his nerve to bag his third victory on the European Tour.

An all-Spanish play-off looked on the cards until Elvira found the water with his tee shot on the penultimate hole and, after seeing a brilliant chip for par lip out, had to two-putt what looked like a routine finish.

"It's such a satisfying feeling", he admitted after following in the footsteps of Antonio Garrido, Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia, Alvaro Quiros and Miguel Ángel Jiménez.

The performance is one that Dunne can be optimistic about, a win is what he wants but falling short to a golfing prodigy and beating him for three out of four days is impressive.

"When I chose your decision in the future direct from Augusta rsquo & it wouldn;t be to show up and wander around, " I wished to get that particular tournament", Rahm told reporters. Triumph the previous one join and also I'd to win that collection of winners that are Spanish and to around my newbie and pro livelihood within such a way, it'so tricky to explain how good it feels and it is.

Rahm's fellow Spaniard Nacho Elvira looked set to go to a playoff with Rahm only to hit his ball into the water on 17.

"It's been unbelievable", Rahm noted. "It's probably the hardest Sunday I've ever had to play because the amount of crowds I was carrying". You can tell how excited everybody is, I felt that tension, I felt that stress, I felt everything magnified.

Another birdie at the second put him right in the frame for his third European Tour win.

Elsewhere, Japan's Satoshi Kodaira beat Si Woo Kim of Korea at the third extra hole to win the PGA Tour's Heritage Classic at Hilton Head in SC. Ian Poulter led going into the last round but closed with 75 to finish joint seventh.
