NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Hideki Matsuyama of Japan won for the third straight time Sunday, holding off Henrik Stenson over the final few holes to win the Hero World Challenge.

Matsuyama, who started the final round at Albany with a seven-shot lead, never let anyone closer than six shots heading to the back nine at Albany. The final nine holes were a struggle, however. He closed with a 1-over 73 to win by two shots.

A double bogey on No. 10 and a three-putt bogey on the easy 14th allowed Stenson to get within three shots with four to play. Stenson three-putted the 15th for par and couldn't apply any more pressure. He closed with a 68.

Tiger Woods, in his first tournament in more than 15 months, shot 76 and finished 15th.
