See below as we run through the main golf tournaments this week, including facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson with odds from 32Red.
- Sheshan Golf Club, China
- First staged in 2005
- Defending Champion: Xander Schauffele
OVERVIEW: The WGC-HSBC event is the fourth and final of the World Golf Championships events, the previous being the WGC-Mexico Championship, WGC Match Play and the WGC Invitational.
Being a WGC event it attracts one of the best fields of the year, including defending champion Xander Schauffele, but it is Rory McIlroy who comes in as favourite.
The pro’s point of view…
Our resident golf expert is Cliff Jackson. Cliff is a leading youth coach and PGA professional at the famed Seaton Carew Links – one of the oldest courses in the world.
All the WGC events are great viewing and I don’t think this week will be any different.
Hideki Matsuyama did well for me last week and I think he will go well again and I really don’t want to go against defending champion Xander Schaueffele – he will go close to defending his title.
