2016 WGC HSBC Champions
The 2016-2017 season continues at the beautiful Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai China for the World Golf Championships’ first event…the HSBC Champions. The WGC always brings the biggest names in golf and this week is no exception. Russell Knox will look to defend his title, but he will be up against big names and past winners like Bubba, DJ, Poulter, Kaymer, Lefty, and Sergio.
The Course: Sheshan International Golf Club, Shanghai, China. 7,266 Yards. Par 72
The Weather: Weather shouldn’t play too much of a factor this weekend, with the only real chance of rain being on Friday (only 50%). Thursday kicks off the weekend with temps in the mid 70s. Weekend golf cools down a little to the mid 50s and cloudier conditions. Wind calm breezing 5-7mph. No advantage here for your rain or wind players.
