Fabulous finish sends Finau clear as Rose stumbles

Matthew Fitzpatrick Englishman Fitzpatrick is the world number 40

On the second nine, he bogeyed five times and also had a double and just one birdie on Par-5 second.

"I felt like I played good enough to shoot 4- or 5-under par", Koepka said. At the Open Championship at Carnoustie, Scotland, Schauffele and Finau played together for two rounds and both finished in the top 10, with Schauffele edging Finau by two shots, finishing in a tie for second while Finau tied for ninth.

Controversial US Ryder Cup player Reed was the star man of the day, holding a two-shot lead after a bogey-free eight-under 64.

Hsu had a total of 9-under 135 on the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club, one ahead of first-round leader Jodi Ewart Shadoff (71).

"The issue's obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me", he told the New York Times after the USA were thrashed by Europe in Paris.

"I knew I was still playing well and there was a lot of golf to be played", said Finau, who proved an inspired captain's pick for the United States of America in last month's crushing Ryder Cup loss to Europe.

Brooks Koepka, in his debut at No. 1 in the world, didn't deliver much excitement. "But one thing I learned from this game is you take the good with the bad", Finau said with a laugh.


That put him at 11-under 133, three shots clear of Reed (72), Tommy Fleetwood (68) and defending champion Justin Rose (67).

Masters champion Patrick Reed said on Friday he was focused on winning the European Tour's season-long points race rather than making a point to his fellow Americans with his play at the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai.

That brought him back to level par and, after a look at birdie just slipped by at the 9th, his 18th, McIlroy tapped in to card a level-par 72.

Finau hasn't won since the 2016 Puerto Rico Open, an opposite-field event that was held the same week as the Match Play.

Finau got a good break at Le Golf National. Not only did he hit a flawless tee shot into short range on the 17th, he got away with a poor tee shot into a bunker on the 18th and a shot that left him a lot farther from the green than he wanted.

The feature group was anything but that - Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Francesco Molinari combined to shoot 6-over par.

The victory for Schauffele is his third in the last eighteen months, and it crescendoed. This was Finau's 19th round in the 60s over his last 21 starts in PGA Tour events.
