Dustin Johnson said it is the biggest win of his career. The former Coastal Carolina star carded a final round 6-under par 66 to finish with a tournament record 24-under score, and a three shot victory in the HSBC Champions tournament.
Johnson blew a six shot lead during the tournament. But he broke away from the field on the back nine on Sunday, going 5-under par during a five hole span.
The shot of the day for Johnson was a pitch-in eagle on the 16th hole.
It is Johnson's first World Golf Championship title, and places him third in the Fed-Ex Cup standings. He earned $1,400,000 for finishing three shots ahead of Ian Poulter.
Johnson has now won at least one tournament in each of his seven seasons on the PGA Tour.
