Jon Rahm Puts On Phenomenal Display to Claim DDF Irish Open with Bag Filled with TaylorMade Clubs
A remarkable 65 on a rain soaked Sunday saw the Spaniard win by 6 shots
Basingstoke, Hants (9th July, 2017) - Battling the elements, TaylorMade-adidas Golf Staff professional Jon Rahm displayed yet more incredible golf to take home his second win in 2017 and his first on the European Tour.
Powering the 2017 TaylorMade M2 Driver, Rahm averaged 308 yards off the tee en route to a four day score of 24-under par. Rahm consistently set up birdie opportunities throughout the week. Utilising his TaylorMade P750 irons and taking advantage of good scoring conditions, Rahm hit 81.5% of Greens in Regulation and carded 23 birdies and 4 eagles throughout the four days.
The Sunday surge started emphatically following a hole out from 150 yards to make eagle on the par 5 4th, finishing the front 9 with 3 straight birdies as he signed for a final round 65, matching his day 1 course record total. Rolling his Spider Tour putter brilliantly, he holed putt after putt throughout each day, including a monster eagle on the 14th hole on Sunday.
Having switched into the TP5X golf ball early this year and seeing almost instant success on the PGA Tour, Rahm's ball control was second to none as he tore apart the Portstewart links.
Rahm will now head into Royal Birkdale ranked number 8 in the world and as a hot favourite as his form shows no signs of slowing down.
