Jon cruised to Dubai Duty Free Irish Open victory with a blistering last round -7 under par 65, to post a winning total of -24 under par, and a six stroke margin over his nearest rival.
Jon now joins Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal and Sergio Garcia on an illustrious list of Spanish winners of the Irish Open;
“It’s such a great honor now just to be part of the history of this event.”
“Such a great country, such a great history in the tournament and such a great golf course.”
“To me it’s such a great week, it really is special for me to share it with three of my heroes.”
“I’ve been saying, I haven’t played my best golf and today, for 15 holes, I played the best golf I can ever play on the golf course with the weather that we had. Obviously the bonus of holing out on four was great.
“Man, this is a nice feeling.”
Richie Ramsay, Scotland, -7 under par 65 today, and Matthew Southgate, England, -6 under 66, shared second place at -18 under for the tournament.
Tied in fourth spot at -17 under were, Justin Rose, England, Daniel Im, USA, David Drysdale, Scotland and Ryan Fox of New Zealand.
