Hideki Matsuyama spanned his last 45 holes without a bogey to capture the World Golf Championships HSBC Champions over the weekend. Matsuyama finished 23 under par, 7 strokes above the 2nd place finisher Henrik Stenson, closing with a final round 66. Matsuyama’s 29-birdie performance was near flawless, consistently hitting fairways with long drives, a necessary part of the winning formula at Sheshan International.
Matsuyama beat out some of the world’s best en route to his 3rd PGA Tour win, the most of any Japanese native. Other notables in the top 10 included Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, and Sergio Garcia.
Our HSBC Top 5 Power Rankings finished very well, with Matsuyama capturing the W.
Rory finished in the top 10 and Scottie, DJ, and Bubba, and had decent finishes (14th, 35th, 54th)
