Jon Rahm delighted with home title defence at Open de Espana

After defending his Open de Espana name using a five-shot success in Madrid, jon Rahm has already set his sights on a.
Rahm proceeded top of the Race following a dominant display on home land to Dubai standings and became the Spaniard to reach Tour victories.
The entire world extended his advantage with four birdies and an eagle along with a bogey and took a direct into the last evening his single blemish in a five-under 66.
I am happy I three-putted 17, Rahm said. I wished to move bogey-free, but at the end of the day I did the most important thing, I managed to successfully defend it in front of the home audience.
It may not be the strongest field yet but its always very hard for me to keep everything under control and to play with the weekend which I did for these is always really fun.
I can not wait for next season to come back and do it twice. The audience was unlike anything else. Spanish audiences love golf and they adore us coming backagain.
I play with a whole lot of tournaments during the year which do not get so much presence, therefore it reveals how much Spain needs golf, just how much they need more events and how much they enjoy it. It is fantastic for the sport of golf, it is fantastic for Spain and hopefully it can only get bigger.
Rahms closest battle came in Rafa Cabrera Bello, who opened with 12 consecutive pars on the day prior to completing his bogey-free 66 along with five birdies in his six holes.
I would have liked to get some birdies early to put some pressure on Jon, however, didnt happen now, Rahm said. I needed to hang in there, struggle for the second spot and I was very pleased that the birdies came in the conclusion.
He had a major lead from the beginning. You could observe that dip in half following three or four holes and it changes your view – but that didnt occur, but it went the other way.
Seven shots proved to be a commanding lead After he eagled four. It was his tournament and that he played great. All I could do was concentrate on my ball, try to finish second and I managed to do this.
