Classy and talented, Jon Rahm wins sixth pro career title in Bahamas

Noren was two-over par after 10 holes and then after a birdie on 12 he completed his closing five holes in weird manner - birdie (14), eagle (15), triple-bogey (16), ace (17) and birdie (18) in a score of 70 that put him tied for eighth on eight-under.

Of the six titles, three are on PGA Tour, two on European and now the unofficial PGA Tour win at Hero World Challenge. Rahm, making his first trip to the Bahamas for this event, figured out early that the key to scoring at Albany were the five par 5s and two reachable par 4s.

Jon Rahm turned a potential shootout into a Bahamas breeze Sunday, closing with a seven-under 65 for a four-shot victory in the Hero World Challenge.

Sweden's Stenson and Spain's Rahm, who shared the overnight lead, couldn't be separated at the close of day three in signing for three-under par 69s while American Finau birdied both the 15th and 16th holes in a round of 67 to join his European Ryder Cup-winning rivals. Tiger finished in 17th place at just one-under-par for the tournament, 19 shots back of the leader and ahead of only Hideki Matsuyama, who finished at even par for the event. "I just haven't played clean".

Woods, who was under the weather following "The Match" with Phil Mickelson, was never really able to get anything going following his Tour Championship victory. "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. Rickie Fowler also had a 67, and suddenly the defending champion is back in the mix at three shots behind. I've kept saying it the same way. "But I don't think he believed me". He dropped to one knee to pop the ball back to the grass, came up just short of the green, chipped weakly and made double bogey for a 69.

Advantage Finau, at least over the last two days. "I know I can play now, and I know I can win". Today was probably the best I've felt physically this week. He was 4 over for the round after two holes, got it back to even par at the turn and had to settle for a 72.

"I'll try and make it to the finish line", Stenson said.

"[Woods] was like, 'That's a pretty good performance for somebody who can't putt on Bermuda greens, '" said Rahm, who was given the trophy by the tournament host.

"Last year I was in a completely different spot, completely different scenario and trying to piece together, see if I could actually play this game again", Woods said.
