Dunne had a disappointing final day, with four birdies off set by three bogeys to card a final round of 71, and finish 3 shots adrift of Rahm.

Rahm's victory at the Centro Nacional de Golf in Madrid sees him join a number of Spanish golfing legends who have won the country's national title.

It was Rahm's first professional win at home.

He had been hunting a first title as an expert past year, to grow his two previous European Tour wins in Dublin and Dubai.

"Everything feels good, the game feels great, I just didn't pick shots".

Spain's Nacho Elvira had seemed well placed to challenge Rahm, but he sent his tee shot on the short 17th into the water and paid the price with a double bogey.

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. Dunne also birdied the last to beat Elvira by one, with South Africa's Gerry Coetzee finishing fourth a further shot back after his 63 equalled the lowest round of the week.

"It's been unbelievable", Rahm noted.

With the final group needing to hole their second shots at the par-five to force a play-off, Dunne matched Rahm's two-putt gain and Elvira posted a closing par.

"It's been incredible. It's truly been the hardest Sunday I've ever had in any tournament that I've won because the crowd wanted it so much and I wanted it so much".

"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".

The 24-year-old added: "I hope there is a Spanish champion".

Dunne got off to a nervous start quickly finding himself two behind Rahm who birdied the opening two holes while the diminutive Irishman was three behind when he bogeyed the fourth. "They played a huge part, I came for them mainly so I'm just glad I can win this one for the Spanish people".
