Rahm takes his third win in Dubai

Six 'birdies' and a 'bogey': with this splendid fourth round, the Spanish Jon Rahm got rid of the harassment of all his rivals and was proclaimed for the third time (2017 and 2019) champion of the Dubai tournament, which put an end to the DP World Tour, the old European Circuit.

Rahm signed a -5 card this Sunday that allowed him to finish 20 shots below par for the field, with 268 shots and two less than the Swede Alex Noren and the Englishman Tyrrel Hatton. The one from Barrika opened the day with a stroke ahead of the Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick and two over Noren, a minimum income that did not make him hesitate with the sticks.

He started his tour in an excellent way, with three 'birdies', followed by a 'bogey' in the fourth. On holes 7, 13 and 15, he again cut par for the course until he finished with 67, worse than the 66 on Friday and the 65 on Saturday (he made 70 on Thursday), but enough to ensure victory on the Earth Course of the Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Instead, Fitzpatrick, winner of the last US Open, had a day to forget, with 73 strokes. A double 'bogey' in the eight took him out of the fight for victory. In the final classification of the DP World Tour season, Rory McIlroy and Matt Fitzpatrick were at stake for first place and the prize went to the Northern Irishman, finally fourth in Dubai, four strokes behind Rahm. He finished with a card of 68.

Among the other Spaniards participating, the best in the final classification were, tied for ninth position, Adri Arnaus, 68 in the fourth round, and Jorge Campillo, 71, both with a total of 278. Adrián Otaegui finished sixteenth with 282, and Rafa Cabrera Bello in 34th place, with 288, the par for the field, tied with the Paraguayan Fabrizio Zanotti.
