The 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from October 26-29, 2017, at the Sheshan International Golf Club located in Shanghai, China. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs this week for the PGA golfers at the 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions.

   

The WGC-HSBC Champions dates back to 2005 when it was a European Tour event only. It became a PGA Tour event in 2013. Phil Mickelson holds the record for most wins with two. Since becoming a PGA Tour event the winners are Dustin Johnson (2013), Bubba Watson (2014), Russell Knox (2015) and Hideki Matsuyama (2016).
