Matsuyama cruises to WGC-HSBC Champions win

Hideki Matsuyama kept his foot on the gas Sunday at the WGC-HSBC Champions, cruising to a seven-shot victory. Here’s how the final round shook out at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China:

Leaderboard: Matsuyama (-23), Henrik Stenson (-16), Daniel Berger (-16), Rory McIlroy (-15), Bill Haas (-15), Ross Fisher (-14), Rickie Fowler (-14), Francesco Molinari (-14)

What it means: Matsuyama, 24, collected his third PGA Tour win and became the first Asian-born player to win a WGC title, lapping a world-class field by seven shots. He joins McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Adam Scott as the only players from outside the U.S. to win three times on the PGA Tour before the age of 25 in the last 30 years and could move as high as No. 6 in the new world rankings.
