Ernie Els up to World No.16, Lee Westwood No.4

World number two Phil Mickelson beat South Africa's Ernie Els by one shot to win the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions following an exciting final round in Shanghai. With Els in the clubhouse following a nine under par 63, the third course record of the day, Mickelson survived finding rough twice on his final hole to claim a second HSBC Champions title in three years and the second WGC title of his career following March's CA Championship success. Els had his only bogey of the day at the 18th after hitting his approach into the water at the front of the green. Mickelson cements his position as world number two while Els jumps 8 places to world number 16. Lee Westwood finished tied 8th and moves to world number four.

Toshinori Muto came from two behind overnight to win The Championship by Lexus on the Japan Golf Tour with a stunning seven-under-par round final round of 64 to win by two strokes from Kim Kyung-Tae. This third career Japan Golf Tour victory sees Muto climb 72 places to world number 136.
