Four of the top players in the world have confirmed they will take part in the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions from November 1-4. World Number Three Luke Donald, World Number Four Lee Westwood, defending champion Martin Kaymer and Phil Mickelson have all said yes to the sponsors. The event will take place on the Olazábal Course at Mission Hills in China.
2010 US PGA Champion Martin Kaymer who won the event last year by three shots in dramatic style by making nine birdies on the final day is looking forward to defending the title.
England’s Luke Donald is also looking forward to his week at the WGC-HSBC Champions, having missed out last year waiting for the birth of his second daughter.
He said: “I was so disappointed to miss out on playing at the WGC-HSBC Champions last year, although it was for the best possible reason!
Plus Donald will be keen to get back to winning ways after not having the best season. But I guess compared to his heroics last season it was always going to be a disappointment!
