October 31: Here are five interesting facts which you need to know about from last week’s WGC-HSBC Champions.

[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]1[/dropcap]Will Hideki Matsuyama follow in the footsteps \\\\ \\\\ \\\\ \\\\

of Y.E. Yang and become a Major winner? The signs are positive. In 2006, Yang of Korea won the HSBC Champions before it was elevated to the World Golf Championship status. Three years later, he became the first Asian to win a Major title at the PGA Championship.

[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]En-route to becoming the first Asian to win a World Golf Championship title, Matsuyama went bogey-free in 45 holes! During the week, he holed 29 birdies and dropped only six shots. Simply amazing.

[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]3[/dropcap]More on Matsuyama’s victory at the WGC-HSBC Champions… Did you know that his seven-shot winning margin is the highest ever in the tournament’s history? Well now you do.

[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]Miguel Tabuena made two new friends in the span of two weeks… He played with Ernie Els at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia and in China, he enjoyed the company of Dustin Johnson of the United States. Looks like this young man is going places and meeting new acquaintance.

[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]5[/dropcap]Golf is a funny game, just ask Adam Scott. He shot a disappointing 80 in the second round but reversed the score with a 64 in the third round before finishing the event in tied 14th place…

Ends.
