The WGC-HSBC Champions tournament is starting up tomorrow, and today, the big players were on the China publicity warpath by doing their mandatory “Look at us! We’re taking part in Chinese culture!” bit. The part of Shanghaiist that’s actually interested in this sport says this happens every time pro-golfers come into town: three years ago there was a ping pong match.
Anyway, this year, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are battling it out on the Chinese chess board (at The Bund!) before they duel on the green.
Speaking of which, if you want to see them duel on the green, here’s all the ticketing info. Standard package passes range from 500RMB to 2000RMB.
