The World Golf Championships (WGC) are a group of four annual events for male professional golfers created by the International Federation of PGA Tours. All four are official money events on the European Tour and the Japan Golf Tour, and officially sanctioned by the Asian Tour, Sunshine Tour, PGA Tour of Australasia, and PGA Tour. Three of the four are official money events on the PGA Tour, but the HSBC Champions is not an official event on that tour. However, the HSBC Champions winner receives an invitation to the following year's SBS Championship, the PGA Tour's season opener that invites only winners of tournaments in the previous season. - Source: Wikipedia
