Rahm cruises to emphatic Hero World Challenge success

Rahm cruises to emphatic Hero World Challenge success

Jon Rahm turned the final round of the Hero World Challenge into a victory procession, surging to a four-stroke win in the Bahamas on Sunday.

It was a faultless display from Rahm as he claimed his third victory of 2018 at Albany Golf Club on Sunday, stringing together seven birdies as he pulled away from fellow overnight leaders Henrik Stenson and Tony Finau. The last threat to his title melted away on the 14th hole, when he birdied while Finau carded a double bogey, opening up a five-shot lead for the eventual victor.

Tournament host Tiger Woods shot a final-round 73 to avoid a last-place finish.

Jon Rahm grew up idolizing Tiger Woods, so earlier this fall during the Tour Championship he made the most of an opportunity. "I love the game and it's great to watch all those things". 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. Rahm grew up on poa annua greens, still isn't entirely comfortable on Bermuda and asked Woods for advice.

Britain's Justin Rose was in sight of the world number one spot after a 65 but Finau denied him with a birdie at the last for sole possession of second. I played so solid tee to green, didn't make any mistakes.

Both Rahm and Cantlay showed further class by donating $500 for every birdie they made this week. That was just too much for my body to handle and I was not physically prepared for it. However, because of an 18-month-old rules decision that limits the use of video evidence, Woods was spared the additional penalty because he didn't think he made contact twice and it couldn't be determined by the naked eye, only the use of high resolution TV played in super slow motion. "But I don't think he believed me". That left Koepka on top of the world rankings, at least for the moment. His 1-under 287 was one stroke better than Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, who shot a 3-over 75 to close out his tournament.

Defending champion Rickie Fowler posted a second consecutive five-under 67 to move 10 under for the tournament. "As soon as I got in the lead, my mind was still forward".
