One of my biggest criticisms of Tim Finchem was regarding the “W”GC events, and after the recent news that the HSBC Champions event in China will join the WGC, rota, I think I’m going to ease off of him just a little bit.

A premeir event held at the well-designed Sheshan golf course will get a little more prestige and serve as a well-attended event to further promote the golf boom in East Asia.  With defending champs such as Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia, the already important event just got that much better.

So…good move Timmy.
