Robert Rock of England held his nerve to hold off Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods and win the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship on Sunday.
Robert Rock held his nerve Sunday to beat U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship for the biggest win of the Englishman's career.
Tiger Woods talked all week about his improved ball control - then it let him down when he needed it most.
Tiger Woods put himself in position to win his second straight tournament Saturday, and this one would leave little doubt about which direction his game is going.
Robert Rock, 34, had never played in a U.S. Open until this year, and thanks to the quagmire that often comes with international travel, he almost didn't play in this one.
Robert Rock arrived at the U.S. Open less than 12 hours before his first tee shot, his delay caused by visa issues stemming from an driving-under-the-influence incident when he was a teenager.
