Rahm scripts a master class to win Hero World Challenge

  • U.S. golfer Tiger Woods hits from the fourth tee during the last round of the Hero World Challenge at Albany Golf Club in Nassau Bahamas Sunday Dec. 2 2018

Woods eventually walked off with a double-bogey six that, after a flawless prior 17 holes, left him with a three-under par 69 for a two-under par total. The day prior, Rahm, too, had expressed his satisfaction at capitalising "on the easier holes", and the Spaniard reiterated the victor was likely to emerge from whoever did that best on Sunday.

Stenson and Finau are going for their first victory of the year, even though this holiday event is not attached to any tour and is considered unofficial except for the world ranking points, which are more than four of the domestic events in the fall on the PGA Tour. And with five par 5s and a pair of reachable par 4s at Albany Golf Club, plenty of birdies should be available.

In his first trip to the Hero World Challenge, it didn't take Jon Rahm long to figure out how to score.

Finau hung within striking distance of Rahm until a poor tee shot at the 14th led to a double bogey and pretty much sealed the deal for the Spaniard.

In past years, finishing 17th in an 18-man field might spell doom for the tournament host, at least in the eyes of fans and media.

Even so, Woods remained eight shots behind in his first 72-hole event since ending his remarkable comeback year with a victory in the Tour Championship. He's a proven big-game hunter, who especially likes to bring his best stuff against other elite young pros who get more attention than him. I was just trying to hit it sideways there.

"Last year I think I had 14 top 10s last year, maybe more". "Basically it says if the player did not know that he did that and the only way you can tell that is by using this type of slow motion technology, he's exempt from the rules, so there's no penalty there", Watson said. "I think I made one putt outside 10 feet, and I didn't miss a shot the last three days, it's as simple as that".

Henrik Stenson, Jon Rahm and Tony Finau are tied for the lead on 13-under par heading into the final round of the Hero World Challenge.

"I'm not going to play as many as I did this year", he confirmed on pgatour.com. "I took care of the par 5s, and on this golf course, that's what you have to do to play well".

He was four-over through front nine, before holing four birdies in five holes from 11th to 16th but again dropped a shot at 17th.

"That's what you have to do to play well, so I was able to do that today". While it was a somewhat poor end to the year - finishing second to last at one under par, 19 strokes behind victor Jon Rahm - 2018 was far from a failure for Woods.
