Dustin Johnson lost his three-shot lead but found it again late to win the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Sunday at Sheshan International.
After a bogey on the opening hole, Johnson posted six straight pars to fall behind both Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell, who were playing in the final group with Johnson. He responded with two birdies around the turn and a back-nine 31 that featured a hole-out eagle on the short par-4 16th to close it out.
For Johnson, who started his 2013-14 PGA TOUR Season this week, it's the second consecutive season he's opened with a victory.
Poulter finished alone in second, right where he started the day, three off the pace with McDowell another shot back.
Sergio Garcia, who closed with the day's best round (63) was alone in fourth while Justin Rose rounded out the top 5.
