NOTES
This week marks the 50th anniversary of the oldest sporting event in Hong Kong and the second event on the new European Tour season. The 51st playing of the tournament will take place next November, one week before the 2009 season-ending $10 million Dubai World Championship. Although the event was first played in 1959, it didn`t become part of the European Tour schedule until 2002, the year Jose Maria Olazabal won. Olazabal will be joined in the field by fellow major champions Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, John Daly, Michael Campbell and Paul Lawrie. Langer won the tournament in 1991, before it was an official European Tour event. Miguel Angel Jimenez beat K.J. Choi, Robert Karlsson and Thongchai Jaidee by a shot last year to win the title -- his second at the event since 2005. Jose Manuel Lara and Colin Montgomerie, the 2005 and `06 champions will also be on hand this week. The Golf Channel will have very early morning coverage (et) for all four rounds, and also a re-broadcast later in the morning. Next week is the Australian Masters, where Aaron Baddeley won last year.
