World No. 6 Jon Rahm fires third-round 65 to lead acciona Open de Espana

Jon Rahm is the biggest star in this week’s field at the acciona Open de Espana, and so far he’s living up to that label.

After opening the tournament with a 64, Rahm has posted rounds of 68 and 65 around Club de Campo Villa de Madrid in Madrid, Spain, to take a one-shot lead into the final 18.

On day three, Rahm was able to keep the bogeys off the card and took advantage of a wonderful drive down the par-4 18th, where his tee shot found the green. The eagle putt came within inches of finding the cup but the Spaniard settled for a closing birdie.

Min Woo Lee fired a third-round 66 and is one back of Rahm entering the final round. There’s a six-way tie at 13 under for third while two are tied at 12 under for ninth to round out the top 10.

Rahm’s last win came at the Mexico Open on the PGA Tour in May.
