Schauffele wins WGC-HSBC Champions

SHANGHAI

Oct 29, 2018-

Xander Schauffele celebrated his 25th birthday week in some style by beating fellow American Tony Finau in a playoff to win the $10 million WGC-HSBC Champions at the Sheshan International course on Sunday. The 2017 PGA Tour rookie-of-year picked up birdies on the last two holes of his final round to join Finau on 14-under-par and sank a birdie putt on his second trip to the 18th green before watching Finau come up short with a longer effort. Schauffele mixed six birdies with two bogeys for a fourth round four-under 68 to rein in Finau. (AFP)
