Johnson takes control at WGC-HSBC Champions

Nov 2 2013, 5:54am CDT | by IANS

Shanghai, Nov 2 (IANS) United States golfer Dustin Johnson remained in the driver's seat despite carding two double bogeys to sign for a third round six-under-par 66 at the WGC-HSBC Champions here Saturday.

Shanghai, Nov 2 — United States golfer Dustin Johnson remained in the driver's seat despite carding two double bogeys to sign for a third round six-under-par 66 at the WGC-HSBC Champions here Saturday.

The American Ryder Cup star compiled a three-day total of 18-under-par 198 to take a three-shot lead over defending champion Ian Poulter of England who surged into contention with a 63.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell trailed Poulter by a single shot after a spectacular 64 saw him take third place at the $8.5 million showpiece.

It was an enthralling battle for supremacy at the top with Johnson and Poulter going head-to-head at the Sheshan International Golf Club.

Poulter, looking to become only the second player after World No.1 Tiger Woods to successfully defend a World Golf Championships title, had charged up the leaderboard with five birdies in a row from the third and another on the ninth hole. The Englishman birdied the 10th but had his efforts matched by Johnson who was equally impressive.

The seven-time PGA Tour winner fired five birdies in a row from the par-four fifth but found trouble on the 10th hole where his pitch to the green failed to get to the top of a steep slope and rolled back to his feet.

Johnson's third attempt smashed into the pin and he eventually limited the damage to a double-bogey six by holing from 12 feet. There was further drama at the par-five 14th when Poulter holed an eagle from 20 feet to reduce Johnson's lead to one.

However, the American responded with birdies on the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th before seeing his lead reduced to three with another double bogey on the 18th.

Should residency requirements play a role in the Ryder Cup?

Sep 29 2014 3:08pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

Another Ryder Cup loss has most of American golf shaking their heads and asking a collective “why?” There is a tendency to overlook the bigger picture here, but the bottom line is still rather clear. The balance of power in professional golf has clearly shifted. Europe seems too much for America to handle right now, just as GB&I was no match for the U.S. from 1927-1979. This is not the first time such an imbalance ha ...
