Home hero Jon Rahm delighted the huge crowds at Centro Nacional de Golf as he became the sixth Spanish player to win the Open de España.

It was the 23-year-old first appearance at the Open de Espana and his third victory on the European Tour.

Dunne led by one shot overnight and a birdie on the 18th gave him a final-round 71 and outright second place.

Rahm and Elvira were both tied at 19 under on the 15th and a playoff beckoned, but Elvira hit the water with his first shot on the penultimate hole, leading to a double bogey.

"It's hard to describe the feeling of satisfaction and pride I have right now", Rahm said.

Gambhir, who led KKR to two IPL titles, was bought by DD in the IPL 2018 auction for Rs 2.8 crore and is also their captain. KKR experimented last game with Robin Uthappa opening the batting instead of Narine, instead of his otherwise No.3 slot.

"It's probably by far the hardest Sunday I've ever had to play just because of the amount of crowds I was carrying", he said.

He said 'I felt like I hit the ball great. I tried to isolate myself, but I could feel it. "I'm blessed to be national champion of the Spanish federation many times - European champion, world champion representing them - so to be able to do this as a pro and for them, and for the Spanish people, feels great".

Rahm began the day two shots behind Dunne after rounds of 67-68-66, but got off to a fast start on Sunday with back-to-back birdies on his opening two holes.

The tournament was eventually decided on the short 17th as Rahm escaped with a par after nearly sending his tee shot into the water, the ball just holding up in the rough.

The Greystones man appeared to be primed for one of the biggest victories of his career entering the fourth and final round however he failed to fire as he did on the previous days and ended up being overtaken by Rahm on the leaderboard.

Rahm birdied the last, although he didn't need it, to grab the trophy.

Ryder Cup stalwart Ian Poulter, who snatched a late place at the Masters Tournament following his play-off triumph at the Houston Open on the US PGA Tour earlier this month, was in contention for a second victory of the season at the RBC Heritage in SC as he approached the back nine just one shot off the lead.

The Spaniard, who's now the World number four, claimed a two-shot victory after carding a closing 67 to move 20 under for the tournament.

He joins Antonio Garrido, Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia, Alvaro Quiros and Miguel Ángel Jiménez as winners of the event, which has been a staple on the European Tour since 1972.
