• Woods urged to ‘respect’ WGC-HSBC Champions


    SINGAPORE: HSBC’s sponsorship chief has urged Tiger Woods to respect the bank’s large investment by playing at this year’s WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai instead of “meaningless . . . money-making opportunities.” Giles Morgan, HSBC’s global head of sponsorship, said the bank had “had words” with the golf tours about impressing on players the importance of appearing at the sport’s biggest events. World number one Woods has caused controversy by skipping the last two editions of the $8.5-million tournament, the richest seen in Asia, in favor of exhibition appearances in the region.
