Woods Falls Short At The Abu Dhabi Championship
(ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates) -- England's Robert Rock held off U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods Sunday to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
Rock and Woods were tied atop the leader board while entering the final round. Rock was able to grab the lead after the 14-time major champion stumbled on the fourth and fifth holes.
“I was right there with a chance to win a golf tournament but didn’t do it,” Woods said.
Woods came within one shot of tying Rock after the Englishman bogeyed on No. 13, but couldn't cash in on the opportunity. He finished the tournament tied for third, two shots behind Rock.
Rock is ranked 117th in the world. He finished the tournament 13-under 275. It’s just his second victory on the European Tour.
