European Tour Weekly stays in China for a second week for the final World Golf Championship event of the season. ETW will be on the range at Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen with the latest news and views from the players on the eve of the WGC-HSBC Champions.

Twelve months ago Martin Kaymer stormed to his tenth Tour victory, and first WGC win, at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai. We recently caught up with the former World Number One to talk about how he overhauled a five shot deficit on the final day, and also to reflect on the most famous putt of his career at Medinah last month.

Kaymer is one of eleven European Ryder Cup stars playing at the inaugural BMW Masters in Shanghai and as always European Tour Weekly will show the best of the action.

Taking part in the tournament, and talking to us, was the ever popular Spaniard, Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño.

Now fully recovered from a back injury he’s taken advantage of a clean bill of health by winning two tournaments in the last twelve months – the most recent being the BMW Italian Open presented by CartaSi in September.

ETW also brings news from The Challenge Tour’s last event of the year, the Apulia San Domenico Grand Final. The tournament represents the last chance for many Challenge Tour players this year to gain their full playing rights for The European Tour for 2013.

Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
