Hideki Matsuyama became the youngest golfer to win the WGC-HSBC Champions on Sunday, as the 24-year-old cruised to the title at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China.

Matsuyama finished the final round with a score of six under to grab the title well ahead of Henrik Stenson and Daniel Berger, who both trailed the Japanese ace by seven shots. Rory McIlroy jumped up the leaderboard with a round of six under, good enough for a share of fourth place.

Here's a look at the final leaderboard:



According to Golf.com's Golf Wire, there is a total of $6 million to be spread among the players.

     

Recap

Matsuyama came into the day with a three-shot lead at the top of the leaderboard and wasted little time pushing his momentum with a birdie on the first hole.

The Japanese star has stood out for his short game throughout the tournament, and his putter was on fire once again, as he finished the front nine three under without dropping a shot. As shared by the European Tour's official Twitter account, he provided a few highlights along the way:



A run of three straight birdies on the back nine pushed his advantage even further, and heading to the final two holes, he held an enormous seven-shot advantage. Here's a look at another beautiful shot:



Matsuyama almost dropped his first shot in two days on the final hole, finding water with his second shot. He saved par with a superb chip, however, finishing things off in style.

The title at the WGC-HSBC Champions caps off a great year for the 24-year-old, who recorded his best-ever result at a major when he took fourth place at the PGA Championship earlier this year. He's the latest in a long line of young, exciting talents set to dominate the sport for years to come.
