Hero World Challenge report

Jon Rahm now has three PGA Tour titles to match his three European Tour titles after storming to victory in the Bahamas.

Rahm began the final day at 13-under-par, tied at the top with Tony Finau and Henrik Stenson. But a Sunday 65 from the Spaniard, bettered only by Patrick Cantlay’s 64, saw him finish four clear of Finau in 2nd place.

It was a stellar display from Rahm, who moves up to World No. 6.

“I can say I ball striking-wise my game is where I want it to be,” Rahm said afterwards. “It was perfect today.”

Justin Rose shot a 65 of his own to finish 3rd, while Stenson’s 71 earned him solo 4th.

At the other end, Tiger Woods finished 17th in the 18-man field, but he’ll be delighted that for the first time since 2013 he has managed to go an entire year without withdrawing from a tournament. His next scheduled appearance is the Genesis Open in February.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
