The leaders tee of last so the idea is the winner finishes last. It is always desired by the tournament organisers that the winner holes the final putt of the tournament, but it doesn't always happen that way.

He can if he wants to, but he could be the butt of many jokes!

If he doesn't feel he hits the ball far enough he could simply hit off the forward tees, but if he really wants to hit off the ladies tees nothing can stop him.
