Jon Rahm Breaks Irish Open History


Jon Rahm impressed the Portstewart crowds with a hole-out eagle as he won achieved the record-breaking feat at the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open.

The Spaniard John Rahm fired in a seven-under 65 in windy and wet weather at the time of the final round, providing the Spaniard with a six-strokes gap toward his close opponent Richie Ramsay and Matthew Southgate.

The win was the Spaniard’s maiden victory on this year’s European Tour stage and went ahead to break the 72-hole record at 24 under at the tournament, with just one fired shot that stood out from his recent historical achievement.

Started From The Bottom

From the opener of the final round tied margin with America’s Daniel, Rahm finished the break with three holes in regulation before going on to set a pace with an exceptional split second at the par-five fourth.

Jon Rahm, 22, was still lagging behind with 150 yards after his second shot; however, he later saw his effort take a couple of hops and roll into the cup for an eagle that was timely and instrumental to his victory.
