Spaniard Jon Rahm secured a maiden victory on his home turf after clinching the Open de Espana in Madrid by two shots, Sky Sports report.

Rahm, who was coming off the back of an extremely impressive Masters performance which saw him finish fourth, shot four sub 70 rounds in Madrid to finish two-strokes clear of Irishman Paul Dunne who headed into the final round in the lead.

The win is Rahm’s fifth as a professional, however, things could have been very different if fellow Spaniard Nacho Elvira, who was tied for the lead with Rahm with two holes remaining, didn’t double-bogey his penultimate hole.

The 23-year-old has now carded seven straight rounds in the 60’s, which started at the second round of the Masters.

The Spaniard has now joined Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia who also won three times in Europe and twice on the PGA Tour before turning 24 over the past 30 years.
