Justin fired a final round -5 under 67 to win the WGC-HSBC Champions title in China, by two shots at -14 under par;
“This is really, really satisfying, all players pride themselves on winning and I’ve won every year since 2010 .”
“I was very aware that that was slipping away from me this year.”
“To win a WGC is just amazing, they count for so much on both tours. It’s an incredible start to my 2018 PGA Tour campaign and gives me a real shot in the Race to Dubai as well.”
“I needed to regroup going into the back nine, I kind of told myself I was four down playing the golf course. I played match play against the golf course coming in.”
“I didn’t know if thirteen under was going to be good enough, I kind of figured I was playing for second and I thought thirteen was going to be an important number to get to for that.”
“I saw DJ get back to about 14 or 15 and the game was on so it was certainly exciting coming down the stretch.”
What a wonderful game golf is, yesterday I said DJ, the world #1 from the USA had the trophy in his hands, taking a six shot lead into the final round. Today Dustin Johnson carded a last round +5 over par 77, to share second place with Brooks Koepka, USA, -1 under 71 today, and Henrik Stenson of Sweden, with his last round -2 under 70.
