Jon Rahm wins the Open de Espana

Leading man Paul Dunne is a shot ahead of the field after shooting 68 in the third round of the Open de Espana

The world number four began the day behind overnight leader Paul Dunne but a birdie-birdie start from the Spaniard saw him tied for the lead after two holes.

He becomes the Spaniard since it turned into a portion of their Tour from 1972, linking some illustrious company which includes Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez, to get against the Spanish Open.

"It's been incredible. It's truly been the hardest Sunday I've ever had in any tournament that I've won because the crowd wanted it so much and I wanted it so much".

That was five shots behind victor and compatriot Jon Rahm and made Campillo one of three home Spanish players to crack the top five. "When I made the decision to come straight from Augusta, it wouldn't be to just show up and walk around".

"Being able to win this as a pro for the Spanish people feels great, it's hard to describe".

He was hunting a first national title as a professional to add to his two previous European Tour wins in Dublin and Dubai a year ago.

Rahm edged back ahead with a close-range gain at the seventh, as Elvira missed the sixth green and dropped a shot, before the world No 4 cancelled out a three-putt at the ninth with a birdie at the par-five next. I felt that tension.

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

"I'm a little disappointed, but Spain has a great champion in Jon and I'm sure he'll win many more of these".

That left Dunne or even Elvira needing an albatross on the 18th to induce a tie an order with Dunne having a birdie into pip the Spaniard to location.

Dunne got off to a nervous start quickly finding himself two behind Rahm who birdied the opening two holes while the diminutive Irishman was three behind when he bogeyed the fourth. Kodaira had earlier closed with a 66 to finish alongside Players champion Kim (71) on 12 under. Martin Laird and Russell Knox ended up 32nd and 40th respectively.
