Meanwhile, the absence of two of the game's biggest stars, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, has HSBC's sponsorship honcho, Giles Morgan, seeing red.

"I feel strongly that the top players should be here. We look forward to seeing them [McIlroy and Woods] in January at the Abu Dhabi Championship [also sponsored by HSBC], but I believe that golfers have a responsibility to their sponsors," Morgan said on Tuesday. "Without the sponsors there isn't professional golf. And I speak on behalf of the industry."
