Jon Rahm wins in Bahamas, ends year with 3 titles

Twitter | @PGATour

Starting the final round in a three-way tie with Tony Finau and Henrik Stenson, Rahm took the lead for good on the eighth hole and never trailed again.

Rahm took a two-shot lead to the back nine with a 4-hybrid to 12 feet on the par-5 ninth that set up a two-putt birdie, and he held his own until Finau's double bogey.

"Tiger said that he did not think he hit the ball twice", Watson said. "Didn't seem like much could go wrong". He has made a double-bogey or worse in each of the three rounds so far.

But questions arose about this shot out of the bush.

After extensive video review, it was determined he hit the ball a couple of times.

Cape Town - Tiger Woods revealed that he won't be playing as much as he did next year once the PGA Tour gets into full swing in January. "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. "But there's no way he could tell that". He was four over for the round after two holes, got it back to even par at the turn and had to settle for a 72.

Patrick Reed went from equal first to almost last with a 77 that left him eight shots back at Albany in the Bahamas. I didn't miss a shot the last three days, it's as simple as that.

Manchester United v Arsenal
If you say that a player plays well or bad because of how good a manager is, you are calling the player dishonest. "I disagree totally with that question".

Englishman Justin Rose (65) was another shot back in third.

"At the same time, three-under (on Saturday), tied for the lead, I would have taken it at the start of the week". This is a golf course I'm not very familiar with, I played it once before we played. Since the Ryder Cup, I had an injury problem, I was out for five weeks. So I guess I should be a little bit fresher than some of my colleagues who call me from Hong Kong or somewhere else at this point. I'm feeling all right.

"That's just part of the injuries I've had and the aging process and trying to deal with that and compete".

Everyone was under par going into the weekend, with Jason Day bringing up the rear at 1-under 143. "I think whoever plays the par 5s...with the better score's going to have a chance".

Though his playing is done for the year, Woods can not relax just yet. "I hit the ball close - close enough to really have a shot of a low number today - just didn't do it".

Rahm figured out the secret to that. "It was like a well-oiled machine".
