  • Ballyliffin Golf Club in Donegal to host 2018 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open

Lowry was unaffected by the comments from the crowd as he hit a stunning recovery shot to the fringes of the fairway and struck his third within three feet of the hole.

The back nine was something of a procession for Rahm and he was in such a comfortable position that two dropped shots in his last three holes were of no outcome.

"I've never led going into the final round so I am a little inexperienced in that sense, but I know what I did at Torrey Pines [where he won the Farmers Insurance Open], both good and bad".

Barry Funston, Chief Executive of the Rory Foundation, said: "It is great to be involved with the tournament and we're slowly moving around the country, taking it to all corners".

He joined Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia on the list of Spanish winners of the Irish Open.

Ibaka, Raptors agree on $65 million, 3-year deal
Big man Sergio Ibaka, who the Raptors traded for at the deadline in 2017 , will sign 3-year, $65 million deal to remain in Canada. The news comes hours after Toronto's other key free agent Serge Ibaka agreed to a three-year deal with Toronto.

Richie Ramsay qualified for this month's Open Championship after joining Matthew Southgate in a share of second, with David Drysdale and Ryan Fox taking the other places available. England's Justin Rose is among the group with Hend at 13-under. "It's going to be awesome playing with Jon Rahm". He had to move his marker to get out of the way of playing partner Daniel Im's ball but, when he replaced his ball he did so ahead of the spot instead of alongside it as he had marked it.

Six clear of his nearest challengers at that stage the only question remaining looked to be who would finish second, with 10 players separated by just two shots.

Rahm, 22, carded 65-67-67-65 for 24-under at Portstewart Golf Club. McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama give the Irish Open two of the top five players in the world ranking.

Southgate had already sealed his place in the Open via final qualifying on Tuesday, but Ramsay had forgotten all about it as he chased a fourth European Tour title.

"Star Wars helped put Inishowen firmly on the tourist map and the arrival of the Irish Open will have huge financial benefits for Donegal for years to come".
