Jon Rahm celebrates with tournament host Tiger Woods after winning at Albany




Nassau, Bahamas - Jon Rahm turned a potential final round shootout into

a four stroke drubbing of the field after his final round 65 (20 under par

total) at Albany Golf Club.

 

Starting Sunday's final round tied with Tony Finau and Henrik Stenson,

Rahm continued his domination on the par-5's, making birdie on all five

at Albany (he finished 13 under par for the week on the par-5's alone). The

biggest momentum shift of the final round came at the 291 yard drivable

par-4 fourteenth. Finau pulled his 3 wood tee shot into the sand, making

a mess of a very get-able hole (double-bogey), meanwhile Rahm capitalized,

making birdie for a three-stroke swing. He never looked back, it was Rahm's

3rd career PGA Tour win and his sixth global victory.

 

After a sloppy front nine 40, tournament host Tiger Woods righted the ship

slightly to shoot a final round 73 (finishing in 17th, one shot ahead of last

place finisher Hideki Matsuyama).

 

When Tony Finau's birdie putt at the last dropped to reach -16, it kept

Justin Rose from finishing tied for 2nd (and re-capturing the No.1 ranking)

after his 65 tied Rahm for the low round of the day.
