Spain's Jon Rahm named European Tour

Player of the Month

Jon Rahm has been awarded the Hilton European Tour Golfer of the Month Award for July in recognition of his record-breaking victory at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation.
The Spaniard has provided one of the most incredible stories in world golf over the past 18 months, rising from 551st in the Official World Golf Ranking at the beginning of 2016 to his current heady position of World Number Seven.
Rahm’s victory at Portstewart Golf Club came courtesy of an incredible final round 65 which lifted him to a six-shot victory on 24 under par, the lowest under par winning score in the tournament’s long history.
In the process, the 23 year old joined an illustrious list of Spanish former winners of the event – alongside Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal and Sergio Garcia.
