Result: Jon Rahm earns two-shot win at Open de Espana

Home favourite Jon Rahm finishes two shots ahead of Paul Dunne to win the Open de Espana in Madrid.

Jon Rahm has fired a five-under 67 to claim a maiden victory on home soil at the Open de Espana in Madrid.

The 23-year-old held off closest challenger Paul Dunne with his final-round 67 to earn a third victory in his last 10 worldwide starts.

Rahm bogeyed on the ninth hole but six birdies proved enough to secure top spot, as overnight leader Dunne dropped three shots on the final day.

Nacho Elvira was in strong contention, meanwhile, eventually finishing third at Centro National de Golf after a double-bogey on the penultimate hole.

Further back, George Coetzee enjoyed an impressive final round as he ended the day on nine-under, seeing him claim fourth place ahead of four others tied for fifth.
