Martin Kaymer of Germany made nine birdies over his last 12 holes Sunday and closed with a 9-under 63 to win the HSBC Champions for the biggest comeback victory ever in a World Golf Championship.
Starting the final round five shots behind Fredrik Jacobson, with a host of stars around him, Kaymer ran off four straight birdies to start the back nine at Sheshan International. He finally caught Jacboson with a birdie on the 13th, and then poured it on.
It was the second win of the year for Kaymer, who moves to No. 4 in the world. Europe occupies the first four positions in the world ranking. Rory McIlroy outplayed Lee Westwood to go to No. 2.
Kaymer finished at 20-under 268 and earned $1.2 million.
