Kaymer the last WGC-HSBC winner at Sheshan 10-29-2013
Martin Kaymer
Martin Kaymer hoisted the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions hardware the last time this event was held at Sheshan International Golf Club in 2011.

The event moved to Mission Hills in 2012, with Ian Poulter winning, but Kaymer holds the distinction of defending at Sheshan. Nine of his 12 rounds at Sheshan have been under par. It's fair to say he's rounding into form, finishing no worse than T13 in any of his last three starts. A T7 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship started that run.
W.C. Liang rides a hot Fall into the WGC-HSBC 10-29-2013
Wen-Chong Liang
W.C. Liang makes his fifth appearance at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

If you're counting at home, that gives him perfect attendance in the exclusive event. Liang has performed well this Fall, finishing inside the top four in three of his last five starts and inside the top 11 in four of the five. His track record at Sheshan International Golf Club isn't anything special. He has yet to finish any better than his T40 in 2009.
McDowell begins 2013-14 campaign at WGC-HSBC 10-29-2013
Graeme McDowell
Graeme McDowell kicks off his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions this week.

G-Mac finished third in this event at the current venue of Sheshan International Golf Club in 2011. Conventional wisdom is that length is an important attribute, but his success throws a little water on that fire. He hasn't finished inside the top 45 anywhere in the world since his T12 at the PGA Championship, so form is a fair question.
Uihlien begins chase for TOUR status at HSBC 10-29-2013
Peter Uihlein
Peter Uihlein makes his World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions debut at Sheshan International Golf Club this week.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
It's no secret the American would love to find a home on the PGA TOUR at some point in his career, and this week could be the first step. Because of his strategic decision to spurn the Web.com Tour in favor of global golf, he has boosted his world ranking all the way to 60th. As that continues to grow, he will see more and more action in PGA TOUR sanctioned WGCs and majors and begin to add up the dollars as it relates to Special Temporary Membership. That worked out pretty well for Jordan Spieth last season.
Manassero 7th in Race for Dubai ahead of HSBC 10-29-2013
Matteo Manassero
Matteo Manassero sits seventh in the Race for Dubai and looks to improve upon that at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
It's unclear if his sights are set on a permanent home on the PGA TOUR, but a big week at Sheshan International Golf Club could also bring that option into play. This is the first time the WGC-HSBC is considered an official PGA TOUR event. In his two previous appearances in this event, the Italian has failed to crack the top 50.
Wood makes WGC-HSBC Champions debut @ Sheshan 10-29-2013
Chris Wood
Chris Wood makes his World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions debut at Sheshan International Golf Club this week.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
The Englishman locked up his invitation with his win at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters earlier this year. His last top 25 came in the most recent WGC event, sharing seventh at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. If there's anything we know, it's that the stage won't be too big for him.
Sterne returns to Sheshan; disappointing 2009 10-29-2013
Richard Sterne
Richard Sterne will tee it up for the second time in the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club this week.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
Sterne appeared at the BMW Masters last week, sharing 31st, in his first action since the Presidents Cup. He tied for 60th in his first trip to Sheshan, so it's hard to envision anything better than a top 25 this week. Given there isn't a cut, we at least know he'll stick around for the weekend.
Gay makes second trip to Sheshan for WGC-HSBC 10-29-2013
Brian Gay
Brian Gay returns to the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions for the first time since his 2009 debut.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
Gay tied for 25th at Sheshan International Golf Club that season, but it seems unlikely he will fare quite that well this time around given his current form. He missed the cut at the Frys.com Open, then failed to break par in any of his four rounds at the CIMB Classic last week. Since his win at the Humana Challenge back in January, he's been largely MIA.
Donaldson makes first Sheshan Golf Club start 10-29-2013
Jamie Donaldson
Jamie Donaldson makes his second appearance at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
Donaldson tied for 42nd in the 2012 edition at Mission Hills, so this is his first attempt at Sheshan International Golf Club in this event. A T6 at the Portugal Masters gave way to an off week, then a T34 at the BMW Masters last week. Like everyone else in the 78-man field, he will enjoy the absence of a cut.
Rumford goes for third 2013 win at WGC-HSBC 10-29-2013
Brett Rumford
Brett Rumford has already claimed two wins in Asia during 2013 and goes for the hat trick at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
Rumford picked up wins at the Ballantine's Championship and the Volvo China Open in back-to-back weeks earlier this season. This marks his first start in this event, so familiarity with Sheshan International Golf Club cannot be assumed. His form is in top shape, finishing sixth at Perth International and T15 at the BMW Masters last week.
Bjorn playing WGC-HSBC ahead of DP World Tour 10-29-2013
Thomas Bjorn
Thomas Bjorn continues his Race to Dubai at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

WorldGolfChampionships.com
Bjorn currently sits eighth in the Race to Dubai standings. This WGC marks the second event of The Finals Series before the DP World Tour Championship. With the top 60 in the Race to Dubai qualifying for the DP World Tour Championship, he's a lock to be included. He tied for 42nd in his appearance at Sheshan International Golf Club in the 2011 WGC-HSBC Champions.
