Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship starts in 2 days

By: January 14, 2014

I think 2013 was a pretty good year for HSBC Golf. HSBC marked 10th anniversary as a major international sponsor of golf. I have just received from them a mail where they announced their sponsorship of Golf Business Community (web portal previously owned by KPMG, now by IMG). They upgraded their status for WGC-HSBC Championship and extended their sponsorship of the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore.

HSBC Golf sponsorship from grew US$7 million to US$8.5 million.

On this Thursday will be the opening of Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. Just to make the event even more interesting the organizers added the traditional Emirati Al Razfa dancing as a prelude.

Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson were not lazy to try to dance this traditional dance.
