On my list of things to do in life, play golf at a beautiful, world-class course, visit Hong Kong and get paid to do something I love are all pretty high up.

So you can imagine the slight jealousy I feel toward the participants of this weekend's Hong Kong Open.

The course at Fanling and the Hong Kong Golf Club in general are gorgeous, classic grounds, making it one of the finest late-season stops on the European Tour.

What They're Saying

Rory McIlroy is looking to be the first back-to-back winner of the Hong Kong Open in 48 years. As you might imagine, that has been one of the main storylines heading into the event.

From the Associated Press (via FOX News):

Only Taiwan's Hsieh Yung-yo has won the event two years in a row, in 1963-64.

"It's here also that I have had some great experiences as a player, taking part in one of the best playoffs ever against Lin Wen-tang in 2009," McIlroy said. "Then I was able to finally put my name on the Hong Kong Open trophy last year."

McIlroy will face 19-year-old Matteo Manassero, the new Singapore Open winner, who will play the opening two rounds with McIlroy.

 

Golfer to Watch: Rory McIlroy

Duh.

At pretty much any tournament that doesn't include Tiger Woods, McIlroy has been the man to watch this year. He has four titles, including the PGA Championship, and he has 15 top-10 finishes and 12 top-five results.

He has solidified his title as "World's Top Golfer."

In a word, he has been "awesome" in 2012. And despite a huge field of golfers, you know the majority of the attention in this tournament will be given to McIlroy.

Prediction

You probably think I'm going to go with Rory McIlroy.

You're correct.

The way he has played of late, I'm not betting against him.
