Jon Rahm claims Hero World Challenge by four shots

The 2018 Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods avoided a penalty on the 18th hole during the second round at the Hero World Challenge as Jon Rahm produced a brilliant performance to move into a tie for the lead with Henrik Stenson.

Rahm ends his year with three victories, just like in 2017, his first full season as a pro. The last threat to his title melted away on the 14th hole, when he birdied while Finau carded a double bogey, opening up a five-shot lead for the eventual victor.

He recorded an eagle at the 14th after a superb shot on a driveable par four.

"That Sunday with Tiger is still the most emotionally, most important moment of my golf career", Rahm told reporters.

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

"When I'm playing well, I feel like I can score on any golf course, especially a course that has five par 5s", Finau said. Rahm grew up on poa annua greens, still isn't entirely comfortable on Bermuda and asked Woods for advice.

China to cut tariffs on USA cars
The benchmark Shanghai Composite index led the way with a rise of 2.6% while Hong Kong was up 2.3% and Tokyo 1% better. Now, these tariffs will not be increased for 90 days, that is, until March 1, 2019.

Tiger Woods took three shots from just off the green at the par-5 third hole-chipping is tough on everyone at Albany-for a double bogey and a ragged start that never got much better until a few late birdies salvaged a 72. "And I've been able to take advantage of those opportunities on those par 5s".

"He was putting next to me and I asked him, because I'm not the best putter on Bermuda grass and I know it's kind of amusing to say that now", Rahm said.

Both Rahm and Cantlay showed further class by donating $500 for every birdie they made this week.

"That's just part of the injuries I've had and the aging process and trying to deal with that and compete".

"I've hit some brilliant shots but I wouldn't say I'm firing 100 percent", he said. I didn't play quite as good as a year ago, but I was still really good.

American Finau (69) birdied the last to claim second place on 16 under, with Englishman Justin Rose (65) another shot back in third. Stenson has won at least once around the world in five of the last six years. "As soon as I got in the lead, my mind was still forward". It's a testament to the good scoring conditions, with all but two players under par in the second round - Reed and Bubba Watson, who had a 73.

SHORT SHOTS: Defending champion Rickie Fowler finishes in a tie for fifth at 13 under.
