Former champion Jon Rahm says he's feeling 'confident' ahead of this week's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Lahinch.
The Spaniard stormed to a six-shot success at Portstewart two-years ago and was inside the top-five at Ballyliffan last year.
Rahm, who was second at Valderrama last week and tied third at the US Open, says he loves playing in Ireland.
"The Irish Open is one of the few events, if not the only one, that I feel almost as comfortable at and get the same level of support that I had last week in Valderrama.
"I don't know why, it might be my love for the country of Ireland, but the support is amazing. Every time I come I'm just comfortable. It's a great feeling.
"My golf game feels pretty good," he said. "To finish top three and top two, that doesn't happen really often in tournaments. It's two very difficult golf courses and that's why I was comfortable in Valderrama. I just had the same mindset.
"I believe here, we might be able to go a little bit lower. It all depends on the wind we get but who knows? If it starts blowing hard, single digits could win it. But I hope I can just play as good as I have so far.
"I'm playing really good golf, second places, third places. I've had chances to win, I just haven't so far. Winning's not easy and there's a lot of diverse winners out this year. There's not many multiple winners.
"I hope I can win a European Tour event again. I've been able to do it the last few years and it would be amazing to be able to do it on both tours again. Looking forward to it and hopefully I can repeat in Ireland. That would be amazing."
