Siem snatches dramatic playoff victory at BMW Masters in Shanghai
France's Alexander Levy started the day five shots clear of Siem but was unable to cope with winds gusting to near gale force and slumped to a six-over par round of 78. He finished tied for the lead on 16-under with Siem, who shot 73 on the par-72 Lake Malaren course, and England's Ross Fisher. "The golf course was the total opposite of the first three days. A real monster, super brutal in the wind." The round of the day belonged to Fisher, who shot a five-under 67 to claw back 11 shots on Levy and get into the playoff. "I thought I had to hole the chip just to stay in the playoff," Siem said. Donaldson started the day on 18-under par but fell back after finding the water at both the sixth and the 12th holes, eventually carding a 75. "It's very difficult," said Donaldson of the back nine and the conditions. Rose returned a respectable level-par 72 in the conditions, but will probably cast his mind back to Thursday's first round when he carded a triple bogey eight at the straightforward par-five 13th, his fourth hole of the tournament.
