Jon Rahm wins Tiger's event after getting putting advice from Tiger

Jon Rahm wins Tiger's event after getting putting advice from Tiger”

"Knowing how much Seve means to me, having the five-footer to beat Tiger Woods, earning the first full point for the Europeans when it was looking kind of dark, there was a lot going on in my mind".

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 awesome year for the American, who is part-Tongan and part-Samoan by origin. He continued to share the lead with Stenson after both fired third-round 69s (Tony Finau moved into the co-lead as well). And then Rahm ended his year with Woods handing him the trophy from his holiday event. It's a disappointing end to a successful comeback for Woods, who won the Tour Championship but struggled to keep dropped shots off his card - including a double bogey on the 18th on Friday that saw him at the center of a rules issue.

Still, Tiger said, struggling in the Bahamas couldn't take away from what was an incredible comeback year for the 42-year-old.

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.

Fowler's name was mentioned a couple of times on Saturday. While Koepka was not in the field, Rose was among the leaders, and could have regained the top ranking in the world had he finished in a three-way tie for second or better.

"Tiger said that he did not think he hit the ball twice", Watson said. "But I don't think they did a year ago, and Rickie shot 11 under, right?" Most of that is due to the par 5s, which he has played in nine under the last two rounds. He made birdie on all seven of those holes Sunday. "And I've been able to take advantage of those opportunities on those par 5s".

"I somehow turned it around and got rolling a little bit to get to even par for the day somehow".

Dustin Johnson, one shot out of the lead, took two chips and one putt to get up the slope right of the green on the par-3 second and made triple bogey. He still was only four shots behind, along with Xander Schauffele (66).

Alex Noren had a 70, but it was far from boring.

Rahm shot a bogey-free round, collecting seven birdies along the way.

He isn't putting a lot of stock into an event, and he wasn't about to make any comparisons to his return to golf in the Bahamas a year ago.
