The Worldwide Tours Are Back in Action!

Today, let's look at the European Tour. The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship kicks off the 2019 part of their wraparound season this week.

Two-time defending champ Tommy Fleetwood

Notably absent from this playing of the event is Rory McIlroy, who had already said that he was going to focus on the PGA Tour this year. But -- with all apologies to Rory -- he wouldn't have been the big story anyway.

No, the big gun this week is Tommy Fleetwood, who is going for a threepeat in this event. Only Martin Kaymer has won this event three times, but they weren't back-to-back-to-back (2008, 2010 and 2011). Fleetwood can make history this week and you can be sure it's on his mind. I'm excited to see how he handles the pressure.

Of course, this is the first appearance in several weeks for a number of big names -- Oosthuizen, Stenson, Poulter, Westwood, Aphibarnrat and Molinari, to name a few. In addition, Dustin Johnson and current world #2 Brooks Koepka have made the trip over

GC's schedule lists the first round of this event to begin TONIGHT -- yes, Tuesday night -- at 10:30pm ET. This is a Wednesday-Saturday event, so the time difference means we get to watch tonight. So don't forget!
