Schauffele wins HSBC for USA sweep of World Championships

Tony Finau charged into a three-shot lead at the WGC-HSBC Champions as Rory McIlroy tumbled further down the leaderboard courtesy of a nightmare front nine in Shanghai. Finau shot a 71 Sunday, while Schauffele had the low score of the day with a 68.

Starting from back nine, Bhullar birdied the 10th hole, double bogeyed the 18th and then picked up birdies at the second and fourth holes before dropping a shot on 17th. He's so long, he's going to have a short iron in after he splashed it out. "It was playing tough out there".

But the real collapse came from Rose, who had led since a short birdie on the seventh hole and appeared to be in complete control of his game. Hats off to him. Xander played incredible golf today.

The victory for Schauffele is his third in the last eighteen months, and it crescendoed.

Dustin Johnson faded after a quick start and shot 73. The victory follows 2017 titles at Greensboro and the Tour Championship.

"I'm a little bit behind Francesco. and I'm hoping to close that gap and have a chance to hopefully win the Race to Dubai", said Reed.

"The issue's obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me", he told the New York Times after the US were thrashed by Europe in Paris.

The singer's five-year-old boy Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer two years ago but is now in remission from the disease.

"I feel like my attitude is like this a lot".

Here is a recap of the third round of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC in Shanghai, China. Last year, he finished second at the Safeway Open in California to get his season off to a strong start.

"Tony is great, and he's due a win, to be fair", Fleetwood said. I remain intrigued and impressed.

Tied with Reed were defending champion and world number three Justin Rose and fellow Englishman Tommy Fleetwood. For the Englishman, its on to the Race to Dubai over the next few weeks (he's now 10th there) as he tries back up his FedEx Cup win with the Race to Dubai double like his buddy Henrik Stenson was able to pull off back in 2013. I was two behind playing the last trying to force something there. "I've never [successfully] defended a tournament before, so that's the goal for this run is to defend one of them".

Finau hasn't won since the 2016 Puerto Rico Open, an opposite-field event that was held the same week as the Match Play. It probably didn't go exactly as he would have liked, but it was a solid showing for his first time with everybody chasing him. "Hopefully I'll shoot a couple more of these rounds, I think that will help me out". "I was happy just to make a few birdies coming down the stretch". Controlled the ball flight. "To shoot a round like that in these kinds of conditions, you know you're going to have confidence when the wind dies down".

He had several other good looks at birdie, and as good as his 64 was on Thursday, it was about the worst he could have shot. Like I said, the full Thomas Pieters Experience.
