Warm temperatures and lush greens are expected to greet the field during the seventh annual edition of the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai China.
The WGC Champions is the first World Golf Championships event of the 2015/16 season, and this year’s tournament promises to be one of the best yet with six of the top ten in the official rankings as well as a talented contingent of Aussies led by Adam Scott, and you need not miss a key moment when viewing it on a standard or HD TV, streaming rounds live to a compatible mobile or internet connected device, or watching replays at a later time.
WGC-HSBC Champions 2015 Preview
The PGA Tour continues its Asian swing with a trip to Shanghai China, for the 2015 World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions. This year’s WGC-HSBC Champions tournament offers $8.5million USD in prize money, and the field is loaded with talent, including six of the top ten in the Official World Golf Rankings led by number two Jordan Spieth. Spieth started the 2015 season bagging consecutive Grand Slams, the Masters Tournament and the US Open, and came close in the PGA Championship when finishing second to Aussie Jason Day.
This year’s other notable names include Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson, as well as nine Aussies led by an in form Adam Scott. Scott will look to do one better than his last outing, when falling just short in the recently completed CIMB Classic off a blistering 63 in the final round to finish second. Marc Leishman, Matt Jones, Steven Bowditch, Scott Hend, Nick Cullen, Andrew Dodt, Greg Chalmers and Steve Jeffress complete the contingent, but don‘t look for them or any of your favourite players in the WGC Champions on Free to Air in Australia.
