Plenty Of Challengers In HSBC

At Shanghai, Kevin Kisner walked off the course in darkness Saturday with a one-shot lead at the HSBC Champions and a growing list of challengers.

That included Li Haotong of China, who had a 6-under 66 and was one shot behind with a gallery starting to believe the 20-year-old can deliver the biggest golf victory ever for the home nation.

Dustin Johnson, who won the HSBC Champions the last time he was here two years ago, also was one shot back after a bogey-free 65.

The list also includes Masters and U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth, who missed four putts inside 10 feet and still rattled off a 63 to pull within three shots.

Kisner made his first bogey of the week...
