The field is set in Shanghai as 40 of the Top-50 golfers in the world teed off this week at the World Golf Championships - HSBC Champions. And with a lot of low scores being posted in the early rounds, players know how important it is to get off to a fast start and keep the momentum going.
“Obviously a very important tournament this week and a good chance for me to get off to a good start and give myself some comfort early in the new FedExCup season,” said Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott.
“You really have to be on your game in all areas. There can't be anything lacking.”
This complete game approach requires a mental focus and determination from the first tee shot to the final putt. As Pro V1x loyalist Bubba Watson explains, it’s also about approaching every tournament with the same goals – to compete at a high level and win.
“I think any golf tournament, you're trying to win, you're trying to compete at a high level. It really doesn't matter if it's a major or regular event, you want to win.”
The combination of additional FedExCup points, a large purse and an extremely deep field have made the HSBC Champions one of the Tour's premier events and there should be plenty of low scores and high drama this weekend.
