Four birdies and an eagle at the 12th saw him soar up the leaderboard and he recovered from a wayward second shot at the last to keep his composure for the par that all but sealed the win on 16-under par.

Rock made 11 birdies, including six straight to close his round.

Rahm was in supreme form at Lahinch as he produced an eagle and eight birdies to finish 16 under par, two shots clear of England s Andy Sullivan and Austria s Bernd Wiesberger, who had the consolation of qualifying for the forthcoming British Open. Even though I had the little mistake on 13, I just knew that my target number was 15-under. One shot back are fellow Englishman Eddie Pepperell and Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello.

Wiesberger and Rock earned places in the field at The Open Championship with their top ten performances, as did England's Paul Waring, who finished at 12 under along with another Spaniard in Jorge Campillo.

Rock, Wiesberger and Sharvin now occupy the positions of the first three golfers not already exempt for the major but the Ardglass man will need another good round tomorrow to secure his spot in the first Open to be played in Northern Ireland since Portrush staged it in 1951.

Samsung , Huawei, Royole Corp and TCL showcased their foldable smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2019 held at Barcelona. Sony has been exploring the roll-up smartphone design for some time now, but it isn't the only company to be doing so.

"It's obviously a bit of comfort, I always like to have a caddie, so that helps me get a caddie from now on", said the 26-year-old.

"I knew I had to do something awesome today to have a chance and that eagle on 12 got me going".

"I think Seve (Ballesteros) is the only Spanish player to have won this event a couple of times so it's very special to add my name to the trophy again".

Rahm began the day five shots behind overnight leader Robert Rock but after a five-under front-nine of 31 and an eagle on the 12th, he quickly moved to within a single shot. Me and Adam did a lot of work over the weekend to polish the mistakes over the first few days. "I'm going to stick to my process and take one shot at a time".

"I think it's a great step for me to get top 15 on The Challenge Tour".
