Mission Hills Shenzhen and Dongguan sprawl over 20 square kilometers, and together create the world's largest golf complex, as accredited by the Guinness World Records. So, you'd assume it's easy to get lost at the HSBC Champions this week.
But no need to leave a trail of bread crumbs to find your way. Just head toward the smell of freshly-brewed coffee and gather at the Starbucks, which opened just last weekend in the Mission Hills clubhouse and has served as the unofficial meeting spot throughout the week.
Players, caddies, tournament officials and fans mingle from sunup to sundown at the coffee shop, welcomed by a little slice of home in China -- no matter where in the world they hail. Phil Mickelson even stopped to grab a coffee on his way to the media center after the first round.
PGA TOUR, European Tour and Asian Tour media officials surveyed some of the players while they were in line. Here's what the world's best players usually ask for:
Phil Mickelson: Venti non-fat cappuccino
Luke Donald: Tall cappuccino
Prom Meesawat: Hot chocolate
Thaworn Wiratchant: Caramel frappuccino
Brandt Snedeker: I don't drink coffee!
Graeme McDowell: Soy latte
Lee Westwood: Skinny latte with one sugar
Louis Oosthuizen: Iced frappuccino
As an aside, the author of this TOUR Report note was very pleased to learn that the Chinese barista understood "Grande non-fat green tea latte with no syrup" perfectly...
Lee Westwood made 11 birdies to shoot an 11-under 61 to catch Louis Oosthuizen at the top of the leaderboard after 54 holes of the HSBC Champions on Saturday in Shenzhen, China. Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open champion, held a five-stroke lead after 36 holes, but carded a 70 as his putting wasn't as sharp as in Round 2. Both players are at 18 under, three shots ahead of Phil Mickelson (66).
