Rahm cruises to emphatic Hero World Challenge success

Las Vegas NV USA Tiger Woods reacts to his putt on on the 14th green during The Match Tiger vs Phil golf match

He made birdie on all seven of those holes Sunday.

Rahm received the Trophy from Pawan Munjal, Chairman, CEO and MD of HeroMotoCorp and takes home a cheque of one million dollars.

It is Rahm's third victory of 2018, the second straight year in which the 24-year-old has won three events worldwide.

Stenson and Finau are going for their first victory of the year, even though this holiday event is not attached to any tour and is considered unofficial except for the world ranking points, which are more than four of the domestic events in the fall on the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) Tour.

Handed an invite to the Quicken Loans by the Tiger Woods Foundation, which handles the PGA Tour event, Rahm justified the faith by nearly winning the event on his pro debut - he finished third and his pro career got off to a flying start.

Even though this tournament takes place outside of the heart of golf season, and only features an 18-player field, the win was still special for Rahm thanks in large part because the event was hosted by Tiger Woods. Woods earned seven top ten finishes but most importantly, he got back in the winners' circle for the first time in five years.

Senators say Saudi crown prince was complicit in journalist's murder

He was four-over through front nine, before holing four birdies in five holes from 11th to 16th but again dropped a shot at 17th.

While his skill and guile may still be at the level that brought him 14 major championships, Woods admits that after over 20 years on Tour, a knee surgery and four back operations, the body is struggling to keep up. I was just trying to hit it sideways there. Ask Tiger how many.

"When I'm playing well, I feel like I can score on any golf course, especially a course that has five par-fives".

Summing up his year, Rahm said, "As I said, this year was not so much about golf, it was about me as a person, so to win as many times as I did last year, it just shows that when I get into contention, to me nothing else matters".

I really liked the ball-striking assassin Stenson entering this week. I didn't play quite as good as a year ago, but I was still really good. That was the case Friday, when Rahm made birdies on half of his holes for a 9-under 63 to share the lead with Henrik Stenson, who had a 66.

Finau admitted the double at 14th proved to be decisive. "I made a mistake there on 17, but overall it was a long week". "That's the next big step for myself, to get myself in there and get myself in a lot of situations where I can win golf tournaments".
