altTwo-time Major Champion Bubba Watson will return to China for the first time since winning last year’s WGC-HSBC Champions when he headlines the field in the inaugural Shenzhen International.

The World Number Two, who won the Masters Tournament in both 2012 and 2014, will be aiming to secure consecutive victories on Chinese soil when he tees up in the US$2.5 million tournament from April 16-19 – one week after he seeks to win a third Green Jacket at Augusta National.

Watson won the 2014 WGC-HSBC Champions title in Shanghai in spectacular fashion last November, holing a bunker shot on the 72nd hole to force a play-off with Tim Clark, which he won courtesy of a birdie on the first extra hole.
