Dustin Johnson wins HSBC Champions in Shanghai

SHANGHAI — It only took four holes over two days for Dustin Johnson to lose a six-shot lead in the HSBC Champions. All that mattered was the high-powered kick down the stretch Sunday at Sheshan International that brought him the biggest win of his career.

In what felt like the end of a long year and beginning of a new season, Johnson broke loose from a three-way battle on the back nine by playing a five-hole stretch in 5-under par. He closed with a 6-under 66 for a three-shot win over Ian Poulter to capture his first World Golf Championship title.

“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.”

Nike Golf’s Lightest Carry Bag Ever: The Nike Sport Lite

New bag weighs in at less than four pounds

BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 31, 2013) – Golfers are always striving to keep their numbers low, and Nike Golf designers took that same approach when it came to crafting the new Nike Sport Lite carry bag, available at retail November 1. Weighing less than four pounds, the Nike Sport Lite is Nike Golf’s lightest carry bag to date.

Nike’s proprietary EquaFlex revolving double strap system, which distributes bag weight evenly across the shoulders through an ergonomic design, brings that much more comfort to the often tiring task of carrying a bag around the course for hours at a time. A five-way, two full-length divider system with putter well maximizes club visibility and organization.

The Nike Sport Lite bag, available in six colors, features the storage space serious athletes need and none of the added weight. Six fleece-lined functional pockets, including a full length apparel pocket, provide enough space for athletes to be prepared on the course without creating extra bulk.

Additional features include:

• Integrated GPS loop, pen sleeve and glove patch
• Custom grip leg end-caps
• Matching rain hood
