Golf-Schauffele forces playoff with McIlroy at Shanghai WGC event

Nov 3 (Reuters) - American Xander Schauffele birdied the final hole to tie Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy and send the WGC-HSBC Champions to a sudden-death playoff in Shanghai on Sunday.

Defending champion Schauffele sank a pressure-packed five-foot birdie at the last for a six-under-par 66 in the final round at Sheshan International.

McIlroy could only par the last after a poor drive, missing a 25-footer for the victory. He shot 68.

The pair finished at 19-under-par 269. (Reporting by Andrew Both in Tokyo; Editing by Simon Cameron-Moore)
