England’s Robert Rock held off the challenges of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy to claim the greatest victory of his career at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on Sunday.
Despite a bogey at the last, Rock’s final-round two-under-par 70 at Abu Dhabi Golf Club saw him finish on 13 under par, good enough for a narrow one-stroke victory over McIlroy, whose 69 did not quite prove enough on the day.
Tiger Woods, tied with Rock overnight, signaled his intent early in the final round with successive birdies at the second and third, but Rock matched those and Woods’ challenge faltered as he inexplicably posted two bogeys, both after missing the green in two and failing to get up and down, immediately after his gains. Rock, meanwhile, parred the holes Woods bogeyed and then birdied the sixth to lead by three before the turn – a lead he would not again surrender.
