Rahm Wins As Finau’s Last Hole Birdie Denies Rose Returning To World No. 1

Albany, Bahamas ….

Jon Rahm has ended his season on winning note while Justin Rose was dramatically denied returning to World No. 1 at the close of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Rahm became the first Spanish-born winner in the 20-year history of the event posting a closing round 69 for four-shot 20-under par victory on the Albany course.

American Tony Finau holed a dramatic 15-foot birdie putt in a round of 68 to finish second on 16-under par.

Finau’s birdie at the saw the American finish second on his own as Rose, who had been tied in second place on the time at 15-under par following his last round 65, official finished third.

Had Finau not holed the putt Rose would have shared second place and thus ensured he returned to World No. 1

A tired-looking tournament host Tiger Woods posted a last day 73 to finish 17th in the elite 18-player field
