Woods falls to Rock in Abu Dhabi, finishes T-3


Robert Rock won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Sunday by two shots over Tiger Woods and one shot over Rory McIlroy. It is his second European Tour win.

Rock finished at 13 under after closing with 2-under 70.

Beginning the day tied with Tiger Woods, Rock matched Woods with two birdies in the first three holes. When Woods made consecutive bogeys at the fourth and fifth of Abu Dhabi GC, Rock had a lead he would not relinquish.

Woods shot even-par 72 on Sunday and finished T-3 with Thomas Bjorn and Graeme McDowell on 11 under.
