Jon Rahm cruised to a successful title defence of his Open de Espana name with a victory in Madrid.
The home favourite started with a guide and was never threatened in Club de Campo Villa de Madrid along with a five-under 66 seeing him complete five clear of nearest challenger Rafa Cabrera Bello during a day.
Rahms success saw him become the first back-to-back winner of the event since Max Faulkner at 1953, along with his winning total of 22 under equalling the smallest 72-hole score in the tournaments history.
The world No 5s success is his fifth European Tour title in his 39th start, 10 fewer than Spanish Seve Ballesteros that was amazing – that maintained his victory that was final in 1995 at exactly the identical venue – had to reach exactly the same number of wins.
After he missed birdie opportunities over his first few holes for him to shoot a stunning strategy at the par-five alongside set up a four-foot eagle, signs of frustration began to look from Rahm.
Rahm then followed a 12-foot birdie in the top by holing a 15-footer in the ninth to make it to the turn seven and got up and down to save par in the next clear.
The direct enhanced further until he paired that with the two-putt birdie to sit eight ahead with three to play, when Rahm gathered in by 12 feet at the 10th .
Following Cabrera Bello submitted a fourth birdie in five holes rahm didnt convert at the 16th, where he holed out for eagle the day, with his lead cutting on to six months.
As Rahm caught up and down from the fringe to close a superb victory with a par cabrera Bello introduced an eight-foot birdie at the last to further reduce the margin.
World No 1,413 Del Val also saved par at the last to bill a three-under 68 and place the best finish of his pro career, though a round-of-the-day 63 out of Jeff Winther raised him into tied-fourth on 13 under alongside Joachim B. Hansen and Adri Arnaus.
