Rahm breezes to Hero World Challenge title

Tiger Woods is in last place 11 shots out of the lead Tiger Woods is in last place 11 shots out of the lead

Clearly, Rahm was pleased with his progress in the first two years of his career. "Still wouldn't get to what Tiger's done in 20 years, but it would be pretty impressive".

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.

Stenson couldn't get his game going, missed a lot of putts, while Finau had a fatal double bogey on Par-4 14th, where Rahm had a bogey and that three-shot swing saw the lead become five and the battle was more or less over. "And I've been able to take advantage of those opportunities on those par 5s". "Hats off to Jon this week".

"Hats off to John this week, he played incredible golf and he deserved to win this week".

Woods was never in the picture until it was time to hand out the trophy.

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.

Stenson almost rallied from a seven-shot deficit in 2016, only to finish toward the bottom of the pack a year ago.

Tiger Woods is overdoing his role as gracious tournament host.

Finau was left second for the fourth time this year, knocking yet again on the door, which does not seem to be opening but will surely yield soon after an fantastic year for the American, who is part-Tongan and part-Samoan by origin. So I capitalized on the easier holes today. "I didn't know what kind of a lead I had until I got to 16, and I was still rifling at the pin".

Woods' victory came at the zenith of the PGA Tour - the TOUR Championship - and it backed up his T6 and runner-up finishes at The Open and PGA Championship respectively, proving that he hasn't lost it on the highest level. After winning the Challenge, Rahm admitted that he grew up watching and learning from Tiger Woods. Beating Woods in the Ryder Cup singles was one of the greatest moments of his career, he said.

"Hosting the event and trying to play well, I haven't done a very good job of playing well but it was nice to finish off on that back nine and actually do something positive", he said after picking up four birdies over the final nine holes. "If I can keep winning three times every year, yeah, I'll be extremely happy".

"I've hit some brilliant shots but I wouldn't say I'm firing 100 percent", he said.

Rahm has said all week the key to Albany were the five par 5s and two reachable par 4s.
