An Omega China Tour record of 144 players will compete in this week's 1.2 million yuan (HK$1.36 million) Sofitel Zhongshan IGC Open in Nanjing, the richest event on the circuit since its inauguration in 2005. The field features players of 14 nationalities, including Hong Kong's Wong Woon-man and Tang Shing-chi. Zhang Lianwei, the first Chinese golfer to win a European Tour event, praised the diverse field at the Nanjing Zhongshan International Golf Club. 'There are a lot of foreigners in this field ... It looks like an Asian Tour or European Tour event,' said the 43-year-old (pictured).
