Jiménez looks to make history in Hong Kong
Miguel Angel Jiménez will attempt to create a little piece of modern day golfing history this week when he aims for a successful defence of the US$1.2 million UBS Hong Kong Open at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling.The ponytailed Spaniard triumphed by one shot last year in a thrilling duel with the 2004 champion Padraig Harrington of Ireland and South African James Kingston and will be looking to get his hands on the silverware once again in this, the first year of a four-year sponsorship deal with new tournament backers UBS.
Kang is King for the day in the UBS Hong Kong Open
Korean golfer Kang Wook-Soon rekindled his love affair with the UBS Hong Kong Open when a sparkling opening round of six under par 64 at the sunkissed Hong Kong Golf Club gave him the first round lead. The 39 year old former two time Asian Tour Order of Merit winner was the last Asian golfer to win the co-sanctioned event between The European Tour and the Asian Tour at the course in 1998, and sparked memories of that day with a fine opening effort.
