Henrik Stenson collected a cool $1 million for landing his first victory in more than two years at Tiger Woods' 18-man Hero World Challenge tournament.

Stenson, 43, carded an exceptional final-round 66, highlighted by a tap-in eagle at the 15th, to finish one stroke clear of Jon Rahm on 18-under par. The victory was extra sweet for Stenson, who is a member at the week's Bahamas venue, Albany. 

 

 

Patrick Reed caused the biggest controversy of the week when twice brushing away sand with his practice swings in a waste bunker on day three, consequently resulting in a two-stroke penalty and plenty of talking points across the world of golf. 

Reed rallied in the final round with a round of 66 but the damage of the two-stroke penalty came back to haunt the American as he finished solo third and two strokes behind Stenson.

Nevertheless, Reed still walked away with $250,000 for his week's efforts. 

Tournament host Woods held every chance of walking away with a consecutive tournament victory and his fifth Hero World Challenge, but he struggled to get anything going on the closing holes and finished fourth on 14-under par. 

The event finished on Saturday to allow the American players in Woods' team extra time to make their way over to Royal Melbourne to compete in the Presidents Cup that starts on Thursday.
