“Rahmbo” Rams His Way To Another Win!
This kid is unstoppable! At age 23, Spaniard Jon Rahm (pictured) bagged his fifth professional win with the latest being the Open de Espana where he fired a final-round 67 to win with a total score of 20-under par.
He completely destroyed the early leader, Irishman Paul Dunne by two shots to win his third European Tour title.
Rahm entered the final round two shots behind Dunne but quickly erased the deficit with a birdie-birdie start.
Rahm entered the week as the clear favorite, as he was the only top-20 player in the world rankings who teed it up this week. Rafa Cabrera-Bello was the only other player ranked in the top 50 in the field.
Rahm’s victory sees him join a number of Spanish golfing legends who have won the country’s national title. Seve Ballesteros won the tournament twice, while Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez also won this title.
Rahm has now finished in the top 5 in 17 of his 43 professional starts, a staggering 39.5% clip.
