"It felt really good, because if you can go out and shoot rounds like that in these kind of conditions, you know you're going to have confidence when the wind dies down and there are flawless conditions out there", Reed said. "So I knew that I still needed to pull off a shot and hit the green".
The Americans also won all four WGCs in 2013 when Tiger Woods won two of them, Matt Kuchar won the Match Play and Dustin Johnson won in Shanghai.
The 29-year-old American took only four putts over the last four holes, starting with a tough up-and-down from a bunker behind the 15th green that barely reached the fringe and trickled down to about 4 feet. His fourth! As Schauffele noted, Finau should (and probably will) win a lot and very soon.
But the tables were turned on Saturday as the Englishman surrendered the crucial 54-hole advantage with a costly double-bogey on the par-3 17th after his tee shot leaked into a hazard.

I remain intrigued and impressed.

"Obviously I have events I've got to defend between this week. two left Turkey and Indonesia", said Rose.
Rose, the 2018 Fedex Cup champion, overhauled an eight-shot deficit to win the tournament past year and so will still have hope of retaining the title and dethroning Brooks Koepka as world No. 1. It probably didn't go exactly as he would have liked, but it was a solid showing for his first time with everybody chasing him. "It was possibly an eight-under round with the chances that I had", said the world number three. "It's just kind of a blah week". Controlled the ball flight. "Just trying to set goals to finish the year off right".
Thomas Pieters (T18): I always enjoy the Thomas Pieters Experience, and we got a roller coaster this weekend. I felt like that was key because when it's windy like that, you have to have full control over it.
