Rahm vs. Stenson in Round 3?

Jon Rahm in the final round at the Hero World Challenge

Jon Rahm in the final round at the Hero World Challenge

There are five in total, and it certainly hasn't escaped the attention of Tony Finau and Jon Rahm who are both making their first appearance at the Hero World Challenge.

"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.

"Yeah, in hindsight. I made a six there, one bad swing can do that on any hole and that's what happened".

Woods was hopeful of much better considering how he struck the ball, though he missed plenty of chances. Beating Woods in the Ryder Cup singles was one of the greatest moments of his career, he said.

Finau was the last challenger, until the 14th hole when he went from a sandy area to a bunker and over the green, leading to a double bogey.

The episode wasn't lost on either Woods or Rahm on Sunday at the Hero World Challenge, where the Spaniard rolled to a four-shot victory at Albany, which has Bermuda grass greens.

At 13-under 203, the trio headed Gary Woodland by two strokes with one round remaining at the tournament, which boasts a strong field but is not an official PGA Tour money event.




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 didn't know what kind of a lead I had until I got to 16, and I was still rifling at the pin".

He'll be there for three days as part of his preparations as the USA Presidents Cup Team Captain ahead of the staging of the biennial event last next year.

Stenson and Finau are going for their first victory of the year, even though this holiday event is not attached to any tour and is considered unofficial except for the world ranking points, which are more than four of the domestic events in the fall on the PGA Tour.

S Chikkarangappa of India and Matthieu Pavon of France each shot 67 and tied for second.

"If you get wind all day, you don't expect people to low", Rahm said.

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? If I'm hitting really solid drives and have short irons in, it's hard not to be aggressive". He said, "I also use it as a learning curve because you can learn all these great things that all these great players have done, and use them for yourself".

"I somehow turned it around and got rolling a little bit to get to even par for the day somehow". Today was probably the best I've felt physically this week.
