Westwood, Mickelson joined by Yang
SHANGHAI -- In his first tournament as the world's No. 1 player, Lee Westwood will be paired at the HSBC Champions with the player who missed out on a dozen chances to top the world rankings.
Defending champion Mickelson played 12 tournaments this year with a chance to replace Tiger Woods at No. 1. Instead, it was Westwood who claimed the top spot this week despite playing once in three months while recovering from injury.
Westwood, Mickelson, Woods and PGA champion Martin Kaymer all have a shot at being No. 1 depending on their performances in Shanghai.
