Jon Rahm delivers for Spanish fans

Madrid at night

We had backed Ireland's Paul Dunne for his second European Tour victory at a handsome 22/1, following the advice of our betting guru Nick Fleming.

"My game was great". "Spain has a great champion in Jon and I'm sure he'll win many more", said the Irishman.

"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". So while I feel good for the next few weeks, I am disappointed not to win.

An all-Spanish play-off looked on the cards until Elvira found the water with his tee shot on the penultimate hole and, after seeing a brilliant chip for par lip out, had to two-putt what looked like a routine finish. I felt everything magnified.

His joy contrasted with Dunne's disappointment although the Greystones man will move to a career-high of 68th in world today. Dunne picked up $206,000, and Elvira won $116,000.

Moscow alleged soon after the suspected April 7 attack that the images of the victims in Douma were fakes. Guterres also said a failure to hold someone accountable for the attack could encourage more .

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. He needed to go super-low on Sunday to have any hope of snatching his first European Tour win and set out in ideal fashion with a trio of opening birdies.

"When I chose your decision in the future direct from Augusta rsquo & it wouldn;t be to show up and wander around, " I wished to get that particular tournament", Rahm told reporters.

In-form Jorge Campillo completed a strong week at his home Open de España with a closing 3-under-par 34-35=69, nudging two spots up the final leaderboard to tied fifth on 15-under 273. His biggest challenge on the day came from another Spaniard, Nacho Elvira, who made back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14 to get within one of the world No. 4.

While he birdied the 15th to get back to within two shots of Rahm and Elvira, there were to be no late mistakes from the eventual victor.
