Classy and talented, Jon Rahm wins sixth pro career title in Bahamas

Classy and talented, Jon Rahm wins sixth pro career title in Bahamas

Henrik Stenson, Jon Rahm and Tony Finau are tied for the lead on 13-under par heading into the final round of the Hero World Challenge.

Woods was 5 under for his round and trying to stay in the thick of his holiday event when he drove into a palm bush on the 18th hole.

Needing a three-way share of second place to regain the top spot he first earned in September, it left him in sole possession of the runner-up spot at that stage after Finau made a double bogey at the 14th.

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

Mark Russell, the PGA Tour's vice president of rules and competition, said: "Basically it [the rulebook] 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".

But the American picked up two shots in the closing four holes to ensure that compatriot Brooks Koepka, who was not playing this week, remained at the top of the rankings as Rose finished third.

"Yeah, in hindsight. I made a six there, one bad swing can do that on any hole and that's what happened. We just keep on going, try to make as many birdies as we can". This is a golf course I'm not very familiar with, I played it once before we played.

‘A Smoking Saw’: US Senators Leave CIA Briefing Convinced MBS Killed Khashoggi
US Senator Lindsey Graham said on Tuesday that bin Salman, known as MBS, is "complicit" in the killing of Khashoggi. He said finding a compromise will be hard because some lawmakers don't want to tie Yemen to the Khashoggi killing.

"There are days or weeks that they don't cooperate, so that's just part of the injuries I've gone through and aging". 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.

Everyone was under par going into the weekend, with Jason Day bringing up the rear at 1-under 143.

Rahm spoke of an interview he once saw from the British Open when Woods said that when he took the lead, his goal was to never go back to the field.

Rahm, however, dismissed his putting at Albany, although he needed just 110 putts and ranked eighth in the field on the greens, and instead credited his ball-striking for the victory.

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

"I played in too many this year, and that was from adding an event because I missed the cut at qualifying to get into Akron". "It was like a well-oiled machine".
