Dunne had a disappointing final day, with four birdies off set by three bogeys to card a final round of 71, and finish 3 shots adrift of Rahm.

Rahm is the sixth Spaniard to win the Spanish Open since it became part of the European Tour in 1972, joining some illustrious company including Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez.

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

Bidding to become the first wire-to-wire victor since Neil Coles in 1973, the Greystones star (25) had to make a 10-footer for birdie at 18th just to finish two shots behind the conquering home hero. "When I made the decision to come straight from Augusta, it wouldn't be to just show up and walk around".

Rahm, Dunne and Elvira were tied for the lead on two occasions, but it was the 23-year-old who held his nerve in his 19th Tour event to become the third-quickest player to three titles. You can tell how excited everybody is.

"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".

"I hit a lot of chips that I thought were better than they were but kept misjudging bounces".

The only way Dunne could force a playoff was with an albatross on the Par-5 18th which was unlikely to happen but did have an impressive birdie to finish outright second. "Spain has a great champion in Jon and I'm sure he'll win many more", said the Irishman.

Rahm started to the leaderboard supporting Dunne, who had put also one supporting Elvira, and also the tempo from the initial few rounds. A closing 77 saw Bradley Neil drop 48 spots as he ended up on six under, with Richie Ramsay finishing on two under.

Poulter's 75 left him on nine under in a tie for seventh, as Kim was eventually beaten in a play-off by Japan's Satoshi Kodaira, with another Englishman in Matt Fitzpatrick in a tie for 14th on eight under.
