In the final round of the 2018 World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, Xander Schauffele cards a 4-under 68 and wins his first WGC event after a playoff hole.
Hsu had a total of 9-under 135 on the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club, one ahead of first-round leader Jodi Ewart Shadoff (71).
"I'm looking forward to tomorrow", said Finau after closing his round of...
Four-time Major victor Rory McIlroy was eight over par. "I didn't have an incredible Asian Swing up until this point, so I think that flight home will be a little bit more special".
He reclaimed one shot at the 13th, commenced his purple patch at the 16th before flirting with a hole-in-one at the par-three 17 and slotting a 10-foot birdie putt at the last to move to 13-under 203 for the tournament. Then at the par-5 18th, both players birdied, sending them back to 18 for the playoff.More news: American stock markets crash, analysts urge calm

Molinari, the British Open champion and Ryder Cup star as the first European to go 5-0 for the week, made three straight bogeys around the turn and had no birdies on his back nine.
Finau, of Samoan and Tongan descent, is the first player of that ancestry on the PGA Tour and the first Polynesian to play in the Ryder Cup, where he provided a rare bright spot as a U.S. captain's pick in last month's crushing loss to Europe. It's hard to swallow when you feel like you hit a good shot and you have a bad break like that.
Rose, the 2018 Fedex Cup champion, overhauled an eight-shot deficit to win the tournament previous year and so will still have hope of retaining the title and dethroning Brooks Koepka as world No. 1. "I was happy just to make a few birdies coming down the stretch".
