The PGA Tour makes one final stop on its Asian swing in China this week for the WGC-HSBC Champions, the first of four World Golf Championships this season. The limited field event will take place at Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai, a 13-year old course ranked No. 86 in our world top 100 courses in 2016.
In just 12 years, the WGC-HSBC Champions has produced a strong list of winners, including two-time champion Phil Mickelson, world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer and 2016 champion Hideki Matsuyama, who won by a record margin of seven strokes. Of that group of winners, only Johnson, Mickelson and Matsuyama are in this year's field, but plenty of other big names will tee it up, including the 9:50 p.m. ET marquee grouping of major champions: Henrik Stenson, Jason Day and Brooks Koepka. For golf fans, this week will be the last time they get to see some of the world's best until 2018.
The Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Wednesday and Thursday from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. ET and Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
