Final-Round Numbers: 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions

A look at some stats and facts after the final round of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan Golf Club (West) in Shanghai, China, where Justin Rose (67) won by two shots.


BULLETS

  • Justin Rose’s eight-stroke come-from-behind victory sets a personal best, a tournament best and a World Golf Championships record.
  • Dustin Johnson’s birdie-free round was the seventh of his career. His eight-shot blown lead was the third worst in PGA Tour history.
  • Henrik Stenson’s runner-up was his second to Rose in the past 15 months (2016 Olympics).
  • Brooks Koepka finished runner-up for the fifth time in his PGA Tour career.
  • Phil Mickelson matched Rose’s 5-under-par 67 for the low final round of the day. With the score, Mickelson moved to T15 for the tournament.
  • Peter Uihlein, a PGA Tour rookie and son of Titleist CEO Wally, shot a final-round 72 to finish T5. It is his second consecutive top-10 finish after a T10 at the CIMB Classic.
  • Richard Sterne, of South Africa, shot a 4-under 68 for the day’s only bogey-free round.
  • Wu Ashu finished as the top Chinese golfer (T20), and the only one in the red (-3), after a second consecutive 1-over 73.
