Rahm took control of the final day’s play when he picked up four birdies in his opening nine holes in Albany and never looked back from there as he picked up his third title of the year.

As for Rose he needed to finish the tournament in second to reclaim his spot at the top of the world rankings, and looked on course to do so as he shot a 65 to hold second on his own.

However Finau picked up two birdies in the last four holes to leapfrog over Rose, which means Brooks Koepka remains top of the pile in the world standings.

Meanwhile, tournament host Tiger Woods was 17th in the 18-man field after a closing 73 left him at one under.
