Jon Rahm has won his second Irish Open title in three years claiming the title in Lahinch on Sunday.

20,477 was the official attendance, the largest of the 2019 tournament as the golf course infamous for it’s history of the goats saw the Rahm come good on the home stretch.

Spain’s Rahm turned on the style in the final day at Lahinch with a score of 62 to overtake Robert Rock who struggled to match his blistering round three form.

Four birdies and an eagle at the 12th saw him soar up the leaderboard and he recovered from a wayward second shot at the last to keep his composure for the par that all but sealed the win on 16-under par.

Cormac Sharvin was best placed of the Irish.  He carded a 70 to finish six shots adrift of Rahm.
