Record-breaking Rahm wins Irish Open by 6 shots

Rory McIlroy

Spain's Jon Rahm celebrates winning the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open with girlfriend Kelley Cahill and the trophy at Portstewart Golf Club. Hebert is a stroke behind after shooting a 69.

Rahm only turned professional in June previous year, but claimed his first PGA Tour title at Torrey Pines in January and will climb to a career-high eighth in the updated world rankings. Hopefully I won't need two eagles in the last five holes again to win tomorrow.

"I was that focused on what I was doing, but it's a massive bonus". My putting and short game has never been my best ally on links courses, but this week has been the opposite.

"I felt like I was battling well, two under through 13, and with another par five coming up, but bogey at the sixth took the wind out of my sails", said McIlroy, who showed his frustration by slamming his driver to the ground after a poor drive at the 16th.

Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia are other Spaniards who have won the Irish Open.

Drysdale had joined world number 11 Rahm and Im on 17 under before they had even teed after the remarkable conclusion to his round. "It's going to be awesome playing with Jon Rahm".




Ruddy himself said afterwards "it's the people that make it so special" and 2018 will showcase to the world not just one of his masterpieces but the famous Donegal hospitality.

The No. 2-ranked Hideki Matsuyama dropped into a tie for 22nd after a 72.

His compatriot and fellow house guest Julien Quesne equalled his course record of day one with a 64 - which moments later Australia's Scott Hend too achieved.

"I knew there were spots, but it had totally gone from my mind", Ramsay said after a closing 66 that included four birdies and an eagle in the space of seven holes.

Jamie Donaldson, who was tied for 12th after 36 holes, withdrew before his third round because of a pulled muscle in his back.
