McIlroy slumps out of Irish Open

McIlroy slumps out of Irish Open

Tommy Fleetwood admitted he was frustrated by his finish in the third round of the Irish Open at Portstewart. "I just wish I could have been playing here over the weekend".

He is ranked No. 11 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

It could have been even better for Rahm, who bogeyed two of the last three holes in challenging conditions on the Northern Irish coast.

Not many people would have tipped the former Walker Cup player to be the leading light from this island come the end of the tournament but it has been a week to confound predictions at every turn.

Lowry was unaffected by the comments from the crowd as he hit a stunning recovery shot to the fringes of the fairway and struck his third within three feet of the hole. Hebert is a stroke behind after shooting 69.

The win is his first on the European Tour and 2nd worldwide, having claimed the PGA TOUR's Farmer's Insurance Open in January.

"I know that Government support is required and I have been working to secure that support". Hopefully I won't need two eagles in the last five holes again to win tomorrow. My putting and short game has never been my best ally on links courses, but this week has been the opposite.

Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia are other Spaniards who have won the Irish Open. "But if you had told me I was going to shoot 24 under in this weather, and win by six, I would have probably said, 'You're insane". He's one of the fastest rising stars in the world.

Frenchman Benjamin Hebert sits one shot further back, while Englishmen Justin rose and Oliver Fisher are in a tie for sixth on 13-under.

The biggest news of the day from off the course was the announcement by European Tour chief Keith Pelley that next year's tournament would be held at Ballyliffin on Donegal's Inishowen Peninsula.
