Rahm finished with a 67, while Sergio Garcia's 65 took him to 17 under.Garcia was the only other player who could have taken the Race to Dubai title - he needed to win the Tour Championship with Fleetwood finishing outside the top 20 and Rose outside the top four.The Spaniard had eight birdies but his challenge faltered with the a bogey at the last to finish tied fourth alongside Rose, plus South Africans Dean Burmester and Dylan Frittelli.Fleetwood had started the day promisingly with a birdie on the first and although he dropped back with five bogeys, he had done enough to take the order of merit title."It's amazing. You start the season in November/December and you are watching the last shot of the season to see who wins. It's very special," said Fleetwood."I didn't play how I wanted to today. It wasn't pretty. From 11 and 12 onwards it was difficult not to think about what Justin was doing."More to follow.
