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.

Finau recovered from an early bogey to card a five-under-par 67 at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas.

"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 1-over 73 to finish 17th against the 18-man field.

"That Sunday with Tiger is still the most emotional, most important moment of my golf career", said Rahm, 24, who has been ranked as high as second in the world in his still young career. Beating Woods in the Ryder Cup singles was one of the greatest moments of his career, he said. "I think the best way to describe it, having five par 5s and two relatively short par 4s, out of those seven holes I got six birdies".

While Tiger Woods flopped again, Jon Rahm soared to victory at the Hero World Challenge on Sunday.

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. "There's no way them two are going to allow me to miss this putt". "I just haven't played clean". The day prior, Rahm, too, had expressed his satisfaction at capitalising "on the easier holes", and the Spaniard reiterated the victor was likely to emerge from whoever did that best on Sunday.

Defending champion Rickie Fowler posted a second consecutive five-under 67 to move 10 under for the tournament.

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 unbelievable year for the American, who is part-Tongan and part-Samoan by origin.

I really liked the ball-striking assassin Stenson entering this week. I've kept saying it the same way. "I know I can play now, and I know I can win".

"That's what you have to do to play well, so I was able to do that today".

"I added two degrees of loft in my putter after Thursday and then went out and shot 64 yesterday with it and so I chose to keep it", he said.

Spaniard Rahm was disappointed not to have the sole lead after a birdie putt at the last failed to drop. 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.

"[Woods] was like, 'That's a pretty good performance for somebody who can't putt on Bermuda greens, '" said Rahm, who was given the trophy by the tournament host.
