NOTES:
The European Tour travels to Singapore this week for the Singapore Open at Sentosa Golf Club. This is the 48th edition of this event, but only the third year that it is part of the European Tour. The purse for this tournament is $6 million (U.S. dollars), which makes it the largest prize fund for a national open in Asia.

Thirteen of the top-50 players in the world are in the field this week, including American Phil Mickelson (11), Graeme McDowell (14) and Justin Rose (16). McDowell is coming off a third place finish at the WGC-HSBC Champions last week, one of his best performances of 2011. Rose finished tied for seventh last week. Mickelson is playing for the first time since finishing 10th at the PGA Tour Championship in September. Since then, he's fallen out of the top 10 in the world rankings.

This event is co-sanctioned by the European Tour and Asian Tour. It is the 58th tournament sanctioned between the two tours since the first one took place in 1999.

Last year, Adam Scott fired four rounds in the 60s to win this tournament for the third time in six years. Scott claimed the title at 17-under 267 and won by three strokes over Anders Hansen. The win was Scott's seventh on the European Tour and first since 2008.

In 2009, Ian Poulter captured his first win in three years. He finished at 10-under-par 274 for a one-shot victory over China's Wen-Chong Liang. Poulter carded rounds of 66-64-72-72 and won in wire-to-wire fashion.

The European Tour heads to Malaysia next week for the inaugural Iskandar Johor Open. The tour will also be in South Africa for the Alfred Dunhill Championship, where Pablo Martin has won the last two years.
