Japan's Shugo Imahira will make his World Golf Championship debut in the HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC in Shanghai, China. UPDATE: Imahira was 74th (of 78) thru 36 holes (72-79), but was DQ'd for missing his R3 tee time.
The 25-year-old is making quiet progress through the Japanese ranks. He topped the 2014 Japanese secondary circuit to earn promotion and has since improved his main tour rank each year: 24th to 10th to a current rank this season of fifth. He has nine top fives this year, including a maiden victory in May's Kansai Open and a play-off defeat in last month's ANA Open. He was T3 in last week's weather disrupted Bridgestone Open. He has limited experience away from his home tour. He opened the 2016 Open with a 68 before crashing out with a second round 80 and missed the cut in this year's Maybank Championship U.S. Open, but was T35 in January's solid-field Asian Tour Singapore Open.

Making his tournament debut, Shugo Imahira managed a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during round one of The 145th Open at Royal Troon.

The 23-year-old from Japan split 11 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation. The highlight of the round came at the par-5 sixth hole where he circled an eagle-3. That came on the heels of a birdie-bogey combo at the two holes prior, vaulting him from even-par to 2-under. After circling his second birdie of the round at the par-4 ninth, he cruised home on the difficult back nine with nothing but pars. Making his first start in a PGA TOUR event, Imahira is showing no signs of nerves. He entered the week with podium finishes in two of his last five starts on the Japan Golf Tour.
