Jon Rahm is making a nice habit of pulling off remarkable feats.

The 24-year-old is one of the game's most highly regarded young players and to win his home Open at an early age will be a relief.

Playing in the penultimate group, just in front of Dunne and Elvira, Rahm birdied the first two holes to move into the lead and was a constant presence there until the end.

Rahm joins the likes of Spanish greats Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia, Alvaro Quiros and Miguel Angel Jimenez as victor of the Spanish Open.

"I'm just happy to play the way I did and to get it done", Rahm said after his victory.

The B.C. premier said the three-hour meeting was civil but that he did not budge on his opposition to the pipeline. He said the government would "pursue legislative options" to "assert and reinforce jurisdiction in this matter".

Bidding to become the first wire-to-wire victor since Neil Coles in 1973, the Greystones star (25) had to make a 10-footer for birdie at 18th just to finish two shots behind the conquering home hero. "I've been blessed to be national champion from 16 to all ages in Spain", he added.

"I felt like I hit the ball great", Dunne said.

After Rahm had stamped his mark on proceedings with birdies at the first, second and seventh holes in the final round, the tournament was decided on the short 17th.

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.

Elvira carded a 66 to stand at one shot behind while Rahm is joint-third with Sweden's Henric Sturehed, both of whom matched Elvira's six under for the day.

"It's been fantastic", added Rahm.

"It was by far the hardest Sunday I've ever had to play and the weight of the crowd I was carrying and I saw the willingness and the feelings as everybody wanted me to win". You can tell how excited everybody is.

"They were pushing so hard and I felt that and as a golfer it is hard to deal with your emotions sometimes, and while I tried to isolate myself I could feel the emotion and used the crowd emotion". "They payed a huge part, I came for them mainly so I'm just glad I can win this one for the Spanish people".

As for Dunne, it was a missed opportunity to back-up his form with the substance of victory, but he heads to Morocco for this week's Trophee Hassan II full of confidence after a strong start to the season. "Obviously, I'm disappointed not to win, but it is what it is". Martin Laird and Russell Knox ended up 32nd and 40th respectively.

Warren closed with a 69 to finish on 15-under, eight shots ahead of the next best Scot, Stephen Gallacher, as he shot a third 70 in the event.
