A Rahm from another world repeats at the Spanish Open

Jon Rahm (-22) won his second Open of Spain followed, this in the Club de Campo de Madrid. It is his ninth title, the fourth of the season.


Jon Rahm had "a dream" last year, winning the Spanish Open, and he did it. This year he returned with renewed hopes, defending a successful title for the first time in his career. And he has also achieved it. The Biscayan already has his long-awaited double, the back-to-back for the Anglo-Saxons. One more milestone in his short but meteoric career.

This week he again proved that he is the golfer of the people with permission from Sergio García. Both dragged huge masses of the public along the Black route of the Madrid route. It was an Open of Spain and for Spain. Five national golfers, in addition to the two aforementioned Arnaus, Cabrera Bello and the day laborer Del Val (who played his tournament number 20 in the last 23 weeks and leads a globetrotter race spread over different second level tours), finished in the top- 10,

Of all of them, of course, an extraterrestrial version of Rahmbo stood out, who after winning the lead on Saturday with a record of the included field did not hesitate in the least closed the victory with another great lap: four birdies and an eagle, with a single bogey for - 5 in the day and -22 in total. The schism he opened with his pursuers, five strokes, is the widest margin of victory of his career after the one he had in the Irish Open of 2017.

With this, there are already nine titles in the winners of the Lion of Barrika, four of them this season (his second Irish Open in Europe and the Zurich Classic, in pairs, and the Hero World Challenge, unofficial but part of the calendar, in the PGA). Since the Open is part of the European circuit, only Seve Ballesteros, with three wins, has won the tournament more times than he. Gone are Antonio Garrido, Sergio García, Álvaro Quirós and Miguel Ángel Jiménez, with one. As a gift, the leader of the Race to Dubai. Rahmbo rules in Spain and Europe.
