The 2018 WGC-HSBC Champions golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from October 25-28, 2018, 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 2018 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) Hideki Matsuyama (2016) and Juston Rose (2017).

The field for the WGC-HSBC Champions is limited to just 78 players and there is no cut. The player who finishes last in the field this week will earn at least $50,000.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2018 WGC-HSBC Champions is $10 million. That's at the very high end for most PGA Tour tournaments and is up 2.6% over the $9.75 million in prize money up for grabs here last year..
