Justin Rose came from an astonishing eight shots behind the third round leader, Dustin Johnson, to claim his eighth PGA Tour title at the WGC–HSBC Champions.
Rose matched the third-largest comeback victory in PGA Tour history and even he did not expect to be in contention for the win. "The beginning of the day, I was playing for second," Rose said. The 37 year old Englishman's second World Golf Championship title has vaulted him to sixth in the World Golf Rankings.
Rose used a bag filled with TaylorMade clubs and trusted the TP5 golf ball en-route to victory. His win is the 29th on worldwide tours for TaylorMade's new '17 drivers and it also marked the ninth win this season for the new TP5/TP5X ball. Dustin Johnson, Si-Woo Kim, Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele have also won this year with the new golf ball.
