World number three Johnson responded with five birdies of his own in the seven holes, and posted 66.

English Paul Casey and Ian Poulter were tied for third place in 11 under. Casey has moved up 10 places on the leaderboard with a final round of 65, along with four birdies for the opening six holes. Him and Poulter ended the day with third place, which they shared with Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat.
