UBS HONG KONG OPEN TEES OFF 2018 EUROPEAN TOUR SEASON
The historic tournament will mark the beginning of the 2018 European Tour season. The event - which dates back to 1959 - will be played at Hong Kong Golf Club from November 23rd to the 26th 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. Last year, Sam Brazel claimed his maiden European Tour title in just his 17th appearance as the Australian upset the odds to secure a one-stroke victory over Spain’s 2016 Ryder Cup player Rafa Cabrera Bello; it was also his first Asian Tour title. 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.
