Stenson, Rahm move into tie for Hero lead

Jon Rahm in the final round at the Hero World Challenge

He said - "don't even worry, you played great, and I started crying in front of Tiger and kind of - it was such an emotional moment".

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".

"I added two degrees of loft in my putter after Thursday and then went out and shot 64 yesterday with it and so I made a decision to keep it", he said. "As soon as I got in the lead, my mind was still forward".

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.

The 29-year old Salt Lake City golfer said he had also benefitted from a small adjustment to his putter as he seeks to make amends after losing out in a play-off in last month's WGC - HSBC Champions.

Woods laughed and offered some passing advice, "He told me it's all about feel", Rahm recalled.

It set up a tense finale with Smith - who partnered Leishman to second place at the World Cup in Melbourne last weekend. "If I'm hitting really solid drives and have short irons in, it's hard not to be aggressive".

United States senators: 'Zero doubt' MBS ordered killing of Jamal Khashoggi
Khashoggi, a USA resident who wrote for the Washington Post, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. However, the CIA's findings have not been made public and President Trump has equivocated over who was to blame.

Both Rahm and Cantlay showed further class by donating $500 for every birdie they made this week.

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.

Brooks Koepka, who did not play this week, remains No. 1. Rahm made birdie on the hole, and suddenly had a five-shot lead without much trouble to get in the way. Rose has one more event left in two weeks at the Indonesia Masters. Rahm, making his first trip to the Bahamas for this event, figured out early that the key to scoring at Albany were the five par 5s and two reachable par 4s.

"We play a lot of golf courses on the PGA Tour where there's only two or three, so to be able to have those couple extra par 5s, you just know you're going to have some opportunities to score", Finau said.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama brought up the rear, one shot behind Woods.

Rose, 38, who was five shots off the lead in a share of eighth going into the final round, holed a putt from off the green at the 11th for his fourth birdie of the day.
