The 24-year-old fiery Spaniard has been a fan favourite at the Irish Open since claiming a re- cord-breaking victory on his debut in 2017 at Portstewart courtesy of a six-stroke triumph with a 24-un- der par total – the lowest win- ning score in the event's 92-year history. "Winning the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open was very special for me," said Rahm. "What made it all better was the Irish crowds, they were some of the best crowds I've ever played in front of – for both years, two years in a row. I'm very excited to go back there and to Lahinch. I've never been on that golf course but I've heard a lot of good things about it. "It's always one of the most enjoyable weeks I have on tour so hopefully I can have a good showing again. The support I get over there is unlike any other, com- parable to what I get in Spain and I love going back." The Rahminal joins a star-stud- ded field, including Tommy Fleet- wood, Louis Oosthuizen, Shane Lowry, Ian Poulter, Padraig Har- rington and Graeme McDowell among many others at Lahinch Golf Club, from July 4-7 in what's already an unmissable Irish Open renewal.
