Sweet 16 at Sheshan
By Torleif Sorenson on 11/4/13
Shooting four rounds in the 60s at a WGC event is impressive. But going 69-63-66-66 (264) is an eye-opener.
That's what Dustin Johnson did at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, played over Sheshan International Golf Club in China this past week. And because the new PGA Tour season has begun, the $1.4 million Johnson earned isn't just real — it's also official money.
Johnson's chip-in at 16 (above) might be the signature moment of the HSBC Champions.
Not only does Johnson qualify for a bunch of events, including January's Tournament of Championship (That Actually Show Up), he also earned 550 FedEx Cup Points.
(And Drew Carey says the points don't matter.)

I wanted Poulter or McDowell... nice back 9 by DJ to close it out tho.
Oh, & it was funny seeing/hearing everyone scream at the people 'cause they weren't behaving.
I hear the game's new to them.
Since when have putts been called "bombs" (too often)? I mean I can understand a big drive, or a fairway wood/long iron being called a bomb, but a putt? For crying out loud...
