Rickie Fowler ended his 2017 on a high at the Hero World Challenge, with the world No 9 having a special birdie run to thank for his second win of the year.
Fowler began the final round seven strokes back from overnight leader Charley Hoffman, but surged up the leaderboard with a lightning start to his Sunday in the Bahamas.
The American opened with a 12-foot birdie at the first and added further gains over his next three holes, before continuing the run by chipping in from a greenside bunker at the par-four fifth.
A sixth straight birdie at the sixth pulled Fowler into a share of the lead, before holing a 10-foot gain at the par-four next to claim the outright advantage.
Although the birdie run eventually came to a halt with a two-putt par at the eighth, Fowler added another at the ninth to reach the turn in 28 and pick up three more over his back nine.
