This year's WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The General Administration of Sports of China recently put a block on any international sporting events being staged in the country, forcing the cancellation of the World Golf Championship tournament.
WGC-HSBC Champions was scheduled to be held at the Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai from October 29 to November 1, with Rory McIlroy defending the title he won in a play-off against Xander Schauffele last year.
