Germany's Martin Kaymer carded a sensational nine birdies on the back nine on Sunday to take the HSBC Champions title in Shanghai by three strokes over in-form Swede Fredrik Jacobson.
The world number six Kaymer finished 20-under overall with his timely round of 68, capping off his remarkable day with a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th.
Jacobson had commanded the summit of the leaderboard since round two but the 54th ranked player fired three bogeys as Kaymer went three strokes clear with clinical green finishes -- including a blistering 30-footer on the 16th.
Kaymer finished Asia's flagship tournament on 268, making it one of the best days of his career.
