The Swedish Henrik Stenson won his first title in more than two years at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Stenson hit an eagle on the 15th to shoot a final round 66 and finish at 18 below, a shot for defending champion Jon Rahm of Spain.

Patrick Reed cut American compatriot Tiger Woods with two shots, while the English Justin Rose jointly finished fifth.

"I thought it was good momentum and sometimes it just continues to work hard and sharpen," Stenson said.

"Of course, the shot of the day was five wood to a few centimeters out of 15, so I was very happy about it."

Former Open champion Stenson, 43, had had it since his capture of the Wyndham Championship in August 2017 did not win a PGA event.

Rahm achieved second place in New Providence with an impressive effort in the back nine, touching birds on the 14th and 16th and an eagle on the 15th.

& # 39; Night leader Gary Woodland, 35, dropped to seventh after a disappointing one-over-par 73 in his final round.

Tournament host Woods, 43, shot a final round three-under-par 69 but Reed, 29, finished above him at 16 below for the tournament, despite a penalty with two shots after the appearance of sand behind his ball with two practice swings in the third round.

World number eight Rose shared fifth with Justin Thomas of the US, number five.
