Matteo Manassero showed his vast quality with an impressive 66 on the final day of the WGC - Cadillac Championship at Trump Doral.

The precocious Italian, who followed back to back 71s with a disappointing 75 yesterday, showed those in contention what is possible via an outstanding effort.

Many expected scoring to prove difficult in round four with the Blue Monster course hit by trademark winds, but Manassero looked untroubled.

The 19 year old found a birdie on the par five first and never looked back, picking up further shots on the fourth, seventh and eighth prior to the turn.

Not content with those efforts, Manassero then added a further four birdies on the back nine, only to double bogey the difficult 18th and end six under for the day, five for the tournament.

Another seemingly flourishing in the conditions was Padraig Harrington, who no doubt will be rueing a poor first two days having struck an impressive 68 yesterday.

He looked in the mood to better that in the early stages, birdying the first, second, fourth and eighth to be four under through 11. 

Nicolas Colsaerts, meanwhile, birdied his first two holes and was nine under - level with Swede Peter Hanson, who gained a shot on the first.

The final pairing of Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell, 18 and 14 under respectively, were set to tee off at 2:40pm local time, 6:40pm GMT.
