Rahm just matched Seve Ballesteros with his third Open de España. The world number six took home the trophy at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, where in 1995, Ballesteros won his last Spanish Open and claimed his 50th and final DP World Tour victory.

On Sunday, Rahm was humbled by the comparison to Ballesteros. “Seve is a great hero of mine and to do something he took his whole career to do in just a few years is quite humbling, I’m not going to lie.”

During Sunday’s final round, Rahm finished out his round 9 under par with a 62. He grabbed 4 birdies and gained a two-shot lead heading into the back nine. Two more birdies finished out his round, leaving the runner-up 6 strokes behind. His weekend total? 25 under par.

“It might not be the strongest field I play all year but sometimes this could be the hardest to win, right? When I’m at home, I’m supposed to win, everybody is betting on me to win and to come out and play a Sunday like I just did it’s hard to describe. It was my lowest round, my lowest score out here, it was pretty much a perfect week,” Rahm said.

Rahm said, “I’m proud I was able to do what I did. Truthfully, moments like this, pressure-packed moments, make it better. Pressure makes diamonds, sometimes you get a diamond like this one.”
