Round four of the WGC HSBC Champions was just a stroll in the park for Hideki. A final round of -6 under 66 giving him a -23 under par winning total, and a massive seven shot winning margin over the field.

Hideki  is also the first Japanese player to win an individual World Golf Championships event, he is now seeking a Major title. The difference today was putting;

“Winning today, I feel has got me closer to being able to compete a lot better in the Major tournaments.”

“My next goal is, of course, to win a Major and I’m going to do all that I can to prepare well for that.”

“I was really nervous at the start of the day but I was able to birdie hole number one. I kind of got myself into the rhythm of the day and after that, it was smooth sailing.”

“I really don’t know why I played well this week. The last three years, I’ve had to withdraw twice and I didn’t play very well the other year.”

“But I got off to a good start. I really didn’t make any changes to my golf swing or anything.”

“But I have putted really well these last three weeks, and that’s probably the difference.”

“I did play well today. I hit the ball a lot better. But putting was the difference this week.”

Tied in a distant second place were Henrik Stenson, -7 under 65 today, and Daniel Berger, -3 under 69. Both players with -16 under par totals.

Sharing fourth spot at -15 under par were, World number three Rory McIlroy, -6 under 66 today, and Bill Haas, -3 under 69.
