    DUSTIN JOHNSON BLEW A SIX-SHOT LEAD in Shanghai. The 54-hole leader who had been a birdie machine threw a rod on a windy Sunday en route to a 77.

    Meanwhile Justin Rose rallied from 8 shots back to win the WGC-HSBC Champions. Rose carded a 67 including a 31 on the closing 9 for a two-shot victory over Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Henrik Stenson.

    No one saw it coming on Saturday night. World No.1 DJ had already won two World Golf Championship events this year and four titles overall. Put a fork in it. This sucker was done. But late on Sunday people used words like "collapse," "shocking" and Rose himself uttered "unbelievable."

    Rose's Sunday surge tied him with six others for the third-largest final-round comeback in PGA Tour history. Here are the greatest comebacks.

    8 Shots
    Mark Lye, 1983 Bank of Boston Classic
    Hal Sutton, 1985 St. Jude Memphis Classic
    Chip Beck, 1990 Buick Open
    Scott Simpson, 1998 Buick Invitational
    Craig Stadler, 2003 BC Open
    Kyle Stanley, 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open
    Justin Rose, 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions

    9 Shots
    Stewart Cink, 2004 MCI Heritage

    10 Shots
    Paul Lawrie, 1999 Open (Carnoustie)

    DJ is weird that way. He'll just shake it off and proceed as if it never happened. I always wonder if he really wants to win. He seems so laid back, he probably wouldn't breathe if his caddy could do it for him.

    What’s that expression about being as dumb as a bag of rocks?
