The UBS Hong Kong Open will take on added sig­nif­i­cance later this year when the his­toric tour­na­ment marks the be­gin­ning of the 2018 Euro­pean Tour sea­son.

The event will be played at Hong Kong Golf Club from Novem­ber 23-26, and will once again be tri-sanc­tioned by the Asian Tour and the Hong Kong Golf As­so­ci­a­tion.

The com­bined star power of the three golf bod­ies will once again gather with the hope of etch­ing their name on the tro­phy along­side such lu­mi­nar­ies as Padraig Har­ring­ton, Miguel An­gel Jiménez, José María Olazábal, Rory McIl­roy and Colin Mont­gomerie.

Not since De­cem­ber 2003 has the UBS Hong Kong Open taken its place as the first event of a Euro­pean Tour sea­son, when Padraig Har­ring­ton got his 2004 cam­paign off to a win­ning start.

The gal­leries at the Hong Kong Golf Club can also ex­pect a grip­ping fi­nale as the UBS Hong Kong Open is set to be one of the last events on the 2017 Asian Tour sched­ule where the lead­ing Asian Tour play­ers will be bat­tling for the pres­ti­gious Or­der of Merit crown.
