Johnson wants to fulfil his major dream
American Dustin Johnson believes he can win a maiden major title after recovering superbly from having his overnight three-shot lead wiped out in just two holes to claim the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai yesterday.
Johnson played the last six holes in five under par at Sheshan International Golf Club to card a closing 66 and finish 24 under par, three ahead of last year’s champion Ian Poulter.
All three members of the final group of Johnson, Poulter and Graeme McDowell shot 66, meaning Poulter finished one ahead of Ryder Cup team-mate McDowell, with Spain’s Sergio Garcia two shots behind in fourth after a closing 63.
