Jon Rahm runs away with win at Hero World Challenge

Jon Rahm runs away with win at Hero World Challenge

Woods got off to another rough start, rallied on the back nine and had to settle for a 1-over 73 to finish 17th against the 18-man field.

His nearest rival, Tony Finau, who looked like taking it to the wire, stuttered around the turn and then faltered badly with a double bogey on 14 and in Rahm's words, "That was a killer".

"It's definitely not alarming, for sure", said Woods, in his first 72-hole event since winning the Tour Championship. Rose needed to be in at least a three-way tie for second.

Australian Jason Day shot a 70 on Saturday to be tied for 16th at three under.

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.

Rahm had 25 and Cantlay 22 for a total of 47, which raised $23,500 for California Strong, which is helping families affected by the California wildfires.

At 13-under 203, the trio headed Gary Woodland by two strokes with one round remaining at the tournament, which boasts a strong field but is not an official PGA Tour money event. I love studying the history of golf and I did not expect to be here. "But I don't think they did a year ago, and Rickie shot 11 under, right?"

He added, "If you ever see Kelley (his fiancée), ask her because when we started dating, I still did that". "Overall it was a long week".

It was both fun and learning for him.

"I'm not going to play as many as I did this year", he confirmed on pgatour.com.

"Tiger said that he did not think he hit the ball twice", Watson said.

"On days like today, I just didn't really think about my swing", he said. Rose matched Rahm by also shooting seven under in the fourth round.

"That's just part of the injuries I've had and the aging process and trying to deal with that and compete". When they mentioned Seve, I knew he would be up there. "As soon as I got in the lead, my mind was still forward".

He was in last place, 11 shots out of the lead.

He went on saying, as if it was all happening right in from of him all over again: "When I hit it and it went in, I mean, it's all that feeling, right?" "I said, 'Hey, Tiger can you please teach me how to putt on Bermuda?'"

"I hope I keep winning three times every year", Rahm said.

While Rahm may have run away with the victory late, there was still some drama related to the race for the World No. 1 ranking, which remains very closely contested between Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose.
