SHANGHAI, China — It only took four holes over two days for Dustin Johnson to lose a six-shot lead in the HSBC Champions. All that mattered was the high-powered kick down the stretch Sunday at Sheshan International that brought him the biggest win of his career.
In what felt like the end of a long year and beginning of a new season, Johnson broke loose from a three-way battle on the back nine by playing a five-hole stretch in 5-under par. He closed with a 6-under 66 for a three-shot win over Ian Poulter to capture his first World Golf Championship title.

SHANGHAI, China (AP) — Rory McIlroy found himself in a spot that must have seemed vaguely familiar in the HSBC Champions.
He was in the lead.
McIlroy looked more like a two-time major champion than someone who hasn't won all year. He rarely had any stress and opened with a 7-under 65, building a two-shot lead after one round of this World Golf Championship.

VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Simon Dyson faces a disciplinary hearing over his disqualification for a rules violation last week at the BMW Masters.
Dyson was marking his golf ball on the eighth green at Lake Malaren in the second round when he quickly used the ball to tamp down the green in direct line of his short par putt. It was a clear violation of Rule 16-1a, which says a player cannot touch the line of his putt.
