2017 champion Jon Rahm has confirmed that he'll play this summer's Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open at Lahinch.
The Spaniard enjoyed a six-stroke victory at the event two years ago, winning on a record score of 24-under-par at Portstewart.
He also tee-ed it up at Ballyliffan last summer and says he's looking forward to playing the tournament for a third successive year.
"Winning the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open was very special for me.
To perform the way I did and shoot 24 under par and especially the way it happened on that final round, with that magnificent hole-out on four which was arguably one of the best shots of my career, and the finish the way I did. With how much fun I had it was definitely special.
"What made it all better was the Irish crowds, they were some of the best crowds I’ve ever played in front of – for both years, two years in a row. I’m very excited to go back there and to Lahinch. I’ve never been on that golf course but I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.
"It’s always one of the most enjoyable weeks I have on tour so hopefully I can have a good showing again. The support I get over there is unlike any other, comparable to what I get in Spain and I love going back."
Look forward to getting back to Ireland for this year’s @DDFIrishOpen So many great memories from this fantastic event! #ddfirishopen #vamos @mcginleygolf @EuropeanTour pic.twitter.com/ER4TFNKkbS
