Rickie, USA, put together a final round of -11 under par 61 to win the Hero World Challenge by four shots at -18 under par.
Rickie started with seven straight birdies, and never looked back;
“You kind of just try, you ride until the horse kicks you off.”
“You start getting amped up or excited at times so you have to kind of pull yourself back and make sure you stay in the moment.”
“It’s fun when you get on birdie runs just to see how far you can go. You know it’s not going to last forever.”
“If you look at winning as your only sense of success, you’re going to deal with failure a lot.”
“There’s a lot of times where you could pick it apart and last year I could have gotten down on myself a handful of times for not getting the job done or not winning more, but it was a fun year.”
“Being in contention with your buddies and some of the best players in the world, if you keep doing that trophies will fall into place.”
Long time leader Charley Hoffman had to settle for second place, at -14 under par, a last round of even par 72 not good enough, especially as he started the day with a five shot advantage.
Tommy Fleetwood, England –5 under 67 today, and Jordan Spieth, USA, -3 under 69, tied for third place at -12 under par.
Tournament host Tiger Woods had a better day today, a final round -4 under 68 taking him to -8 under for the tournament and T 9 on the leaderboard.
