The Arizona Republic - - Azcentral Sports -

SHANG­HAI - Dustin John­son shot a 4-un­der 68 in blus­tery con­di­tions that led to big num­bers, build­ing a six-shot lead in the HSBC Cham­pi­ons and leav­ing him one round away from be­com­ing the first player to win three World Golf Cham­pi­onships in the same year.

He got plenty of help from Brooks Koepka.

They were tied for the lead through seven holes Satur­day un­til a four-shot swing on the par-5 eighth hole. Koepka drove into the haz­ard off the tee, and then found the haz­ard again on his ap­proach to the green. He missed a 6-foot putt and took triple-bo­gey 8.
