Woods avoids penalty as Rahm & Stenson share Hero World Challenge lead

Going into the Sunday's final round, debutants Tony Finau and Jon Rahm enjoyed a share of the three-way lead ahead of several illustrious names in the Hero World Challenge here.

Finau hung within striking distance of Rahm until a poor tee shot at the 14th led to a double bogey and pretty much sealed the deal for the Spaniard. And with five par 5s and a pair of reachable par 4s at Albany Golf Club, plenty of birdies should be available.

"At the same time, three-under (on Saturday), tied for the lead, I would have taken it at the start of the week".

Woods got off to another rough start, rallied on the back nine and had to settle for a one-over 73 to finish 17th against the 18-man field.

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

"Just one of those days where I felt like I was fighting from behind", Woods said.

Noren was two-over par after 10 holes and then after a birdie on 12 he completed his closing five holes in freakish manner - birdie (14), eagle (15), triple-bogey (16), ace (17) and birdie (18) in a score of 70 that put him tied for eighth on eight-under.

Oklahoma snags 4th spot in football playoff semifinals
The top four teams are expected to be announced at around 12:30 p.m., but that will not be when you learn about every bowl game. For the second postseason in a row, an undefeated UCF team must settle for college football's version of a consolation prize.

"We play a lot of golf courses on the PGA Tour there's only two or three, so to be able to have those couple extra par-fives you just know you're going to have some opportunities to score and I've been able to take advantage of those opportunities", added Finau, who is nine-under on 15 par-fives through three rounds.

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

Finau was left second for the fourth time this year, knocking yet again on the door, which does not seem to be opening but will surely yield soon after an incredible year for the American, who is part-Tongan and part-Samoan by origin. "I just haven't played clean".

Even with his individual trophies, no moment for Rahm will top facing Woods in the Sunday singles at the Ryder Cup and beating him on the 17th hole, putting the first point on the board for Europe that day. "I know I can play now, and I know I can win".

He went on saying, as if it was all happening right in from of him all over again: "When I hit it and it went in, I mean, it's all that feeling, right? The only thing I would say could use some improvement is just maybe making a few more putts". I didn't play quite as good as past year, but I was still really good.

Rahm endured no such drama as he posted the best round of the tournament with a blemish-free nine-under 63.

Tournament host Woods finished second-last, a distant 19 strokes behind Rahm.
