3-way tie for lead in Bahamas with Woods at the bottom

3-way tie for lead in Bahamas with Woods at the bottom

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.

Cape Town - Tiger Woods revealed that he won't be playing as much as he did next year once the PGA Tour gets into full swing in January. This is a golf course I'm not very familiar with, I played it once before we played. He said that he loved the history of the game and had watched all videos on YouTube about golf, Seve (Ballesteros) and Woods.

"This entire year has been unbelievable", Woods said after the tournament.

"Tiger said that he did not think he hit the ball twice", Watson said.

Par or worse for Finau would have seen Rose move back above Brooks Koepka after weeks of flip-flopping for top spot with the American.

Finau finished with a three-under 69 on the day. It's a disappointing end to a successful comeback for Woods, who won the Tour Championship but struggled to keep dropped shots off his card - including a double bogey on the 18th on Friday that saw him at the center of a rules issue.

Tournament host Tiger Woods signed for a 72 to bring up the rear in the 18-man field. 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.




Immediately following the event, Woods is flying by private jet to Los Angeles to board a QANTAS flight direct to Melbourne.

Advantage Finau, at least over the last two days.

Relieved defending champion Cameron Smith held off a final round charge from close friend Marc Leishman to win the Australian PGA Championship by two strokes on Sunday.

Australian Jason Day shot a 70 on Saturday to be tied for 16th at three under.

Johnson had a pair of sloppy bogeys early on the nine - one didn't bother him too much when 3-year-old son Tatum came out to greet him - and recovered nicely on the back nine with four straight birdies to get in the mix. "I was like, 'OK, whatever, right.' And today out there with the trophy, he was like, 'That's a pretty good performance for somebody who can't put putt on Bermuda greens.' I think I made one putt outside 10 feet".

From the moment he stepped onto the first tee on his pro debut back in June 2016, a week after finishing T-23 in his last event as an amateur at the US Open, Jon Rahm had "class and talent" written all over him.
