Cameron Smith sees off the challenge of Jon Rahm and Matt Jones to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

Cameron Smith has won the Sentry Tournament of Champions, shooting a final-round 65 to see off the challenge of Jon Rahm by one shot.

The world number 21 has been consistency personified all week, and he followed scores of 65, 64 and 64 with another 18 holes of the same standard.

Holding a one-shot lead heading into the final hole, Australian Smith holed a three-and-a-half foot putt to get over the line, denying the world number one who had to settle for second despite ending the tournament on 33-under.

Matt Jones, also of Australia, pushed the leaders all the way on throughout Sunday, shooting a 12-under-par round of 61 to claim third position by six shots.

A 67 from Patrick Cantlay was enough to secure fourth spot on his own ahead of Collin Morikawa, who hit an 11-under 62 to move 14 places up the leaderboard into a share of fifth.

Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger also ended the tournament in tied fifth, while Ireland's Seamus Power was one of four players to finish in 15th position.
