Jon Rahm earns two-shot win at Open de Espana

Jon Rahm earns two-shot win at Open de Espana

Elvira carded a 66 to stand at one shot behind while Rahm is joint-third with Sweden's Henric Sturehed, both of whom matched Elvira's six under for the day.

The 24-year-old is one of the game's most highly regarded young players and to win his home Open at an early age will be a relief.

Jason Scrivener finished at the tail of the field after a second over par round of the weekend, his 1-over 73 dropping him to minus one for the 72 holes.

Rahm came from two shots behind Ireland's Paul Dunne to claim his national Open at the Centro Nacional de Golf overnight, a fifth professional victory and third European Tour title. "I'm just happy to play the way I did when my putting wasn't the greatest". "The feeling of pride and satisfaction is incredible".

"It's been wonderful. It's truly been the hardest Sunday I've ever had in any tournament that I've won because the crowd wanted it so much and I wanted it so much". They were pushing so hard and I felt that. As a golfer it's hard to deal with the public's emotions, so I tried to isolate myself and that's perhaps why I didn't play my best golf. Everyone seemed to want me to win.

But this was an even more impressive win considering the pressure on his shoulders.

Midfielder Paul Pogba was United's match-winner against City but produced another less than impressive display against West Brom . They clinched the silverware 24 hours later thanks to Albion forward Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header at Old Trafford .

"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.

"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.

Playing in the penultimate group, just in front of Dunne and Elvira, Rahm birdied the first two holes to move into the lead and was a constant presence there until the end.

Irishman Dunne signed for a closing 71 to finish at 18 under, a shot clear of Elvira and two ahead of South Africa's George Coetzee.

Elvira also birdied the par five first and there was very quickly a three-way tie for the lead at 17 under. But his back nine of 33 would prove enough as Dunne pulled his approach to the 11th and bogeyed, then failed to pitch and putt for birdie at the driveable 13th and bogeyed the par-three 14th when he came up short of the green and chipped 10 feet past.

Dunne also birdied the last to take second place on his own.
