NASSAU – Two months af­ter beat­ing Tiger Woods at the Ry­der Cup, Jon Rahm won his hero’s golf tour­na­ment on Sun­day, surg­ing to a fourstroke win at the Hero World Chal­lenge in the Ba­hamas.

Rahm started the fi­nal round tied with Tony Finau and Hen­rik Sten­son but turned it into a one-horse race with a seven-birdie sev­e­nun­der-par 65 at Al­bany on the is­land of New Prov­i­dence.

He fin­ished at 20-un­der 268, while Amer­i­can Finau (69) birdied the last to claim sec­ond place on 16 un­der.

English­man Justin Rose (65) was another shot back in third. Swede Sten­son faded with a 71 to fin­ish six shots back in fourth place in the elite 18-man field.

Rahm’s vic­tory is un­of­fi­cial on the PGA Tour, though the tour­na­ment awarded world rank­ing points.

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