Leader Finau vows to attack in Shanghai

A stunning five-shot swing over the final two holes of round three saw Tony Finau regain control of the WGC-HSBC Champions as defending champion Justin Rose slipped back into a tie for second.

Schauffele, who turned 25 Thursday, mixed six birdies with two bogeys for a fourth round four-under 68 to rein in Finau, who started the day with a three-stroke advantage and finished with a 71.

World number one Brooks Koepka shot a 69 on Sunday to finish at two under, second-ranked Dustin Johnson finished at three over, and four-time Major victor Rory McIlroy managed even par only once in Shanghai to finish at 10 over par.

In his first start since last month's heavy United States of America defeat to Europe, the reigning Masters champ overcame gusting winds en route to an eight-birdie, bogey-free performance at the $10 million tournament in Shanghai. "I was just really pleased I was able to finish that way and get some momentum".

Schauffele and Finau had both displayed the kind of mettle that could have led to a long, drawn-out playoff battle, but it simply wasn't meant to be that way on Sunday. I played really good golf. He added another birdie on the 9th, his last.

"One thing I've learned in this game is that you take the good with the bad and keep moving forward", Finau said.

The defending champion was in complete control on Saturday before a awful final two holes, where a double-bogey, bogey handed Tony Finau the lead. It led to a double bogey and cut his lead to one shot.

Brooks Koepka, playing his first tournament as the No. 1 player in the world golf rankings, rallied to card a 69 on Sunday.

He made his first bogey of the tournament on the fifth hole of the second round by missing a 4-foot putt after a smart chip shot from deep rough. "I was just in my own world out there".

Former No. 1-ranked Lydia Ko was the big mover with a round-of-the day 66 to move into third place and within two strokes of the lead.
