He sank a 15-footer to eagle the 15th and birdied the par-three 17th from five feet, but saw another birdie chance from 12 feet, for a round of 64, finish on the edge of the cup.

The 21st-ranked Leishman, who won the US PGA Tour's CIMB Classic in Malaysia recently, had four birdies on the front nine while Smith made two bogeys to give him the edge going into the home straight. Rahm, making his first trip to the Bahamas for this event, figured out early that the key to scoring at Albany were the five par 5s and two reachable par 4s.

Tiger Woods appeared to be headed for an ugly finish to an ugly week on Sunday at the Hero World Challenge, where he went out in 40 to fall all the way to two over for the tournament.

Halfway co-leaders Stenson and Rahm both carded round of 69 to be alongside Finau at 13-under 203.

It just wasn't Tiger Woods' day or week as he shot 73, his second over par round of the week and finished 17th in the 18-man field. I was just trying to hit it sideways there. "But I don't think he believed me really". "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". "Basically it says if the player did not know that he did that and the only way you can tell that is by using this type of slow motion technology, he's exempt from the rules, so there's no penalty there", Watson said. The five-time champion cut a sorry figure at the bottom of the board as he ended the day with a 72 that left him 11 shots back.

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?"

Yankees Rumors: Patrick Corbin’s free agent decision coming soon
NY was reportedly unwilling to offer Corbin a six-year deal, which was a deal breaker for the former Diamondbacks star. ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the southpaw is likely to receive the biggest pitching contract of the offseason.

Rahm shot a bogey-free round, collecting seven birdies along the way.

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

"All I know is I played too much at the end of the year", he said.

"I'll try and make it to the finish line", Stenson said.

Tony Finau had a 5-under 67 that turned out to be good enough for a three-way tie for the lead Saturday in the Hero World Challenge. "I just have not done a very good job this week of playing clean and keeping my rounds going like I should and could have". While it was a somewhat poor end to the year - finishing second to last at one under par, 19 strokes behind victor Jon Rahm - 2018 was far from a failure for Woods.
