Paul Dunne is just one round away from winning Golf’s Spanish Open.

The Wicklow man heads into the final day of play in Madrid on 17-under par.

His closest compeditor, Nacho Elvira is just one back on 16-under and will play alongside him.

Irish Open winner John Rahm is just one shot further back.

The Greystones man had an almost perfect round yersterday with four birdies and eight pars, until it was marred by a messy ending, finishing up on 68, which still leaves him top of the pack.

The 25 year old, who only turned professional in 2015, admitted afterwards that it was a mixed day for him saying he managed to make some good saves when he needed to but also “hit a few shots without having anything in mind”.

He also said that in general everything feels good and he’s hoping for a good day today.
