Dustin Johnson wins World Golf Championship event in China

Dustin Johnson won the HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai, China on Sunday.

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.
