THE world's best golfers descend on Shanghai today to play in the WGC HSBC Championship with a field of 78 competing over the 7241 yard par 72 course.

The name of the game this week is power and driving length. Big hitters will come to the fore.

I have highlighted three players I expect to go well:

Current World No.1 Brooks Koepka has played in Asia for the last two weeks  and will be well prepared. Won in Korea last week and I expect him to go well again.

Second is old favourite Xander Schauffele who finished third in two of the FedEx qualifiers, has been in Asia for the last two weeks and will again feature prominently.

The European Trio of Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy will all have supporters but I think the best value for the European challenge lies with Tommy Fleetwood who seems to excel at this time of year and appears to be holding his form well after the Ryder Cup.
