Jon Rahm wins after 'hardest Sunday ever'

Jon Rahm wins after 'hardest Sunday ever'

Rahm went in to the final round two strokes off the pace, but mixed six birdies with a sole blemish on Sunday to join the likes of Seve Ballesteros and Sergio Garcia as winners of their home event. When I played for one, I got the other result.

"This is the hardest Sunday I have ever had to play".

"I've been blessed to be national champion from 16 to all ages in Spain", he added.

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. "I'm just happy to play the way I did when my putting wasn't the greatest". "I hit a lot of chips that I thought were a lot better than they were and I just kept misjudging bounces".

Elvira handed the title to Rahm when he hit his tee shot into the water at the 17th and made a double bogey just moments after the champion's tee shot hung up on the bank, allowing him to save what turned out to be a crucial par.

"It's such a satisfying feeling", he said.

Paul Pogba booked for his own 'Hand of Pog' attempt
Prior to the clash against the Baggies, United were placed second in the table with 71 points after 33 games. He said: "There's players all over the world Portugal, Spain - you name it - wherever".

Rahm played a handsome chip at the first to set up a birdie and when he hit a huge drive on the second to set up another gain, he was in a share of the lead with Dunne.

"They were pushing so hard and I felt that and as a golfer it is hard to deal with your emotions sometimes, and while I tried to isolate myself I could feel the emotion and used the crowd emotion". "Spain has a great champion in Jon and I'm sure he'll win many more", said the Irishman.

Rahm soon found himself in the solo lead as Elvira and Dunne both missed the green and failed to get up and down on the fourth but Elvira snatched top spot with an eagle on the next, holing a downhill left-to-righter from 35 feet. Dunne also birdied the last to beat Elvira by one, with South Africa's Gerry Coetzee finishing fourth a further shot back after his 63 equalled the lowest round of the week.

While he was tied for the lead when he birdied the 10th, the putts that fell for the first three days failed to drop. He was quieter on the inward nine but, after trading a single birdie at 13 with a bogey at 14, Campillo climbed to T5 with a walk-off gain at 18.

While he birdied the 15th to get back to within two shots of Rahm and Elvira, there were to be no late mistakes from the eventual victor.
