SPAIN: Golf Madrid – Jon Rahm retains Spanish Open 2019
Spaniard Jon Rahm dominates in winning his national championship for the second straight year
When Jon Rahm starts winning national titles, he just doesn’t know when to stop. Already the holder of two Irish Opens, the 24-year-old Spaniard replicated that feat by successfully defending the Open de Espana at Club de Campo in Madrid.
A third-round 63 that included eight birdies and an eagle—he played the first seven holes of a back-nine 28 in a remarkable seven under par—was the key to Rahm’s victory. Holding a five-shot lead with 18 holes to play, the World No. 5 was never seriously threatened thereafter. It was a performance of almost total domination.
Rahm—the highest-ranked player in the field—closed with a 66 that took him to 22-under-par 262, five shots better than compatriot Rafa Cabrera-Bello. Another Spaniard, Samuel Del Val, was third, at 15under par. With Adri Arnaus T-4 and former Masters champion Sergio Garcia amongst a five-strong pack tied for seventh, it was quite a week for the home players.
