Tee times, pairings, TV info: 2018 WGC-HSBC Champions

Another week of late-night golf awaits PGA Tour fans in the United States, as the Tour continues its Asian Swing this week with the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China.

The par-72 Sheshan International course will play at 7,261 yards. The winner gets $1.8 million of the $10 million purse and 550 FedEx Cup points.

Play begins Wednesday evening in the United States, with two star-laden groupings highlighting the lineup.

World No. 1 Brooks Koepka will be playing alongside 2018 FedEx Cup winner and WGC-HSBC defending champion Justin Rose and Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood on one featured pairing. Those golfers will tee off from No. 10 at 9:55 p.m. Wednesday night in the U.S., or 9:55 a.m. local time Thursday in Shanghai.

Francesco Molinari, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are another featured pairing. They go off from No. 10 Wednesday night at 10:55 p.m. in the U.S., or 10:55 a.m. local time Thursday in Shanghai.

Last year, Rose edged Johnson by two shots. Both golfers have a chance to replace Koepka at number one in the world, depending on how play shakes out this weekend. There are just 19 Americans in the field, as the U.S. goes for a WGC sweep. Phil Mickelson (Mexico), Bubba Watson (Match Play) and Justin Thomas (Firestone) won the other three WGC events in 2018. None are playing this week.

Here are the tee times and pairings for the first two rounds of play. All times listed are Eastern. Shanghai is 12 hours ahead of New York.
