Spanish star Jon Rahm says it is “really special” to join his compatriots Seve Ballesteros, Jose-Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia in becoming an Irish Open winner.

Rahm fired a closing 65 to earn a six-shot triumph at Portstewart as he finished in a tournament record of 24 under par.

The 22-year-old says he will defend the title next year at Ballyliffin in county Donegal.
