After missing out to Dubai Success on Rush at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, tommy Fleetwood Directed the praise for Jon Rahm.
Despite securing second place in 36, but dropped just short fleetwood had a complete to have some prospect of ending the year as No 1 for another time.
The Englishman briefly trailed by eight strokes during a stunning final day, simply to birdie five of the last seven holes and close a brilliant seven-under 65 out to set the target under.
Fleetwood, pursuing another victory in as many starts could only watch as Rahm – who let a lead slip – got up and down from a greenside bunker to generate birdie and snatch a one-shot victory.
I feel fine, Fleetwood told Sky Sports. I could not have done much more, really. A few of the shots they [Rahm and Mike Lorenzo-Vera] hit coming down the stretch, it started looking like I could put back into it or might have a opportunity.
These two months make the season only seem in another light than it did would weeks before we began. Theres always going to be a bit of pity there but for the most part, I got myself back in it and I am really proud of how I played on back nine.
Its Jon [Rahm]s time, Jons minute. He has played this season and play. Terrific birdie down the past and yeah, just happy with my week.
After shutting his 70 together with Rory McIlroy seven shots off the pace in fourth spot, using a par at the last mike Lorenzo-Vera started the last day co-leader but finished.
I will look back in 2019 very fondly, McIlroy said. There has been lots of golf played a few of my golfclubs. Four wins and I guess this is actually the 19th top-10.
Its been a learning season, too. I learned some things which I wish to take forward into next year, but first and foremost Im looking forward to a month or two off to reflect on everything and get myself ready for next calendar year.
Ill take a good four or four week break from them [clubs] and then in the new year, Ill begin getting ready playing and again in the previous week in January.
