WORLD NUMBER THREE Jon Rahm has confirmed that he will defend his Irish Open title at Ballyliffin this July.

Rahm, 23, romped to a six-stroke win at Portstewart last year with a massive total of 24-under-par, notching his maiden European Tour victory in style.

The Spaniard will now bid to become the first player to win back-to-back Irish Opens since Colin Montgomerie achieved the feat in 1996/97.

The Irish Open takes place at Ballyliffin Golf Club, Co Donegal, from 5-8 July.
