The 2018 season had been "incredible", Tiger Woods said on Sunday after completing his final round of the year. There's also the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, a place Woods has won a few times at throughout his career.
Summing up his year, Rahm said, "As I said, this year was not so much about golf, it was about me as a person, so to win as many times as I did last year, it just shows that when I get into contention, to me nothing else matters".
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 wonderful year for the American, who is part-Tongan and part-Samoan by origin. "That's the next big step for myself, to get myself in there and get myself in a lot of situations where I can win golf tournaments".
"Tiger said that he did not think he hit the ball twice", Watson said. "As soon as I got in the lead, my mind was still forward".
Patrick Reed went from equal first to almost last with a 77 that left him eight shots back at Albany in the Bahamas.
"I've hit some brilliant shots but I wouldn't say I'm firing 100 percent", he said. Most of that is due to the par 5s, which he has played in nine under the last two rounds.
Even with a runaway victory, there was a small measure of drama on the final hole. Rose has one more event left in two weeks at the Indonesia Masters.
Justin Rose, needing to finish in a three-way tie for second to return to No. 1 in the world, closed with a 65 and was in position to go back to the top of the ranking until Finau rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt for a 69 to finish alone in second.
Noren was two-over par after 10 holes and then after a birdie on 12 he completed his closing five holes in weird 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. He made birdie on all seven of those holes Sunday. His 1-under 287 was one stroke better than Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, who shot a 3-over 75 to close out his tournament. Defending champion Rickie Fowler recovered from a testing first day to shoot a five-under 67 for outright eighth.
