Dustin Johnson topples field in China event

Dustin Johnson hailed the "biggest win" in his career at the HSBC Champions in Sheshan International on Sunday.

Stuck in a three-way tie with Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell in the back nine, Johnson broke loose with a five hole stretch in 5-under par to close with a 6-under par 66 that gave him a three shot win over Poulter.

The big swinging American powered his way to his first World Championship title, despite losing a six-shot lead earlier in the tournament.

''It's the biggest win I've had in my career so far,'' he said. ''Those guys put a lot of pressure on me. I'm really proud of the way I handled myself.''

''The first five holes were not fun,'' Johnson said. ''I wasn't having too much fun at the start, especially when Graeme and Ian were birdieing every hole, it seemed like. But I knew I just needed to keep playing my game."

Poulter and McDowell each closed with a 66, the same score as Johnson. McDowell went 64-66 on the weekend without making a bogey and still lost by four, thanks to Johnson's final nine blitz in which he set the tournament record at 24-under 264.

Having now in each of his first seven seasons on the PGA Tour, next on Johnson's "To Do List" is easy: win a major championship.

''You know what?'' Johnson said. ''If I play like I did this week, I'm going to win one, for sure.''
