The biggest news of the day from off the course was the announcement by European Tour chief Keith Pelley that next year's tournament would be held at Ballyliffin on Donegal's Inishowen Peninsula.
Six clear of his nearest challengers at that stage the only question remaining looked to be who would finish second, with 10 players separated by just two shots.
Oner shot better at -18 and tied for second were Scotland's Richie Ramsay and England's Matthew Southgate, both thrilled with their week in Portstewart.
However, by that time Rahm had already done more than enough to get his hands on the title in only his second start in Europe since joining the European Tour which will also place him back into the top ten in the world rankings.
Saudi Arabia Confirms Qatar Boycott Policy
He was met late on Saturday by Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani at Al Bahr palace in Doha. Saudi Arabia was chosen to host the 2020 summit, which officials said reflects the "world's trust in the Kingdom".
American Daniel Im added a second round 67 to move to the clubhouse lead on 13-under par with Spanish sensation Jon Rahm muscling his way to second and just a shot behind after also signing for a 67. After the former had holed his putt, Rahm moved the mark back but placed his ball ahead of it instead of to the side. But it was decided there should be no penalty and Rahm went on to win by six shots.
"Today, for 15 holes, I played the best golf I can ever play on the course with the weather we had", Rahm said.
That secured the first of three spots up for grabs in the season's third major at Royal Birkdale the week after next, with Drysdale claiming one of the other ones along with Kiwi Ryan Fox.
