Chad Campbell looks to snap out of a slump as he preps for this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

Campbell is 4-for-6 to start the new season but two of those were aided by a no-cut format. The 43-year-old is going through a rough patch, finishing outside the top 30 in his last 10 starts, dating back to last year's Barbasol Championship (T18). The flat stick is never his strongest asset but it's gone even colder recently, losing 2.5 or more strokes putting in five of his last seven starts with measured rounds. In his favor, Campbell finished T6 here last year so perhaps this could be a good spot to return to form.

Sung Kang returns from a fun week at the EurAsia Cup and will get right to work at this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

Kang was a big part of the early success for Team Asia last week. Paired up with Poom Saksansin on day one, the duo ripped apart Henrik Stenson and Alex Levy en route to a 5-and-4 victory. The same duo lost to Thomas Pieters and Matthew Fitzpatrick on Saturday but Kang halved his match with Fitzpatrick on Sunday. After a promising start, Europe prevailed in the end. Despite the lengthy travel, Kang should be well prepared this week. He shared some videos a few weeks ago of him practicing at PGA WEST. Gamers should give Kang a long look in deeper formats as he tries to build on last year's breakout season.

Dustin Johnson will make a second appearance in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC, hoping to retain the form he closed last season's renewal with.

Twelve months ago Johnson made his tournament debut and could only muster a round one level-par 72. It left him T75 and eight swings back of the lead. A Friday 68 got him inside the cut line (T38), but he remained those eight shots back. Cue a weekend 64-68, a 12-under last 36-hole total which bettered by three anything the rest of the field could manage as he raced into a tie for second. Add it to his dominant eight-shot victory in the season-opening Tournament of Champions and you can understand why he is the bookmakers favorite. Possible chinks in the armour? Travel: he's had to get from Hawaii to the U.A.E. In this day and age, part of the job though. More realistically, perhaps, the field will remember how he blew his six shot 54-hole lead in the HSBC Champions. Flipside of that is that we've learned that whilst they might recall it, he's unlikely to.

Dylan Frittelli will be seeking to maintain his newly discovered desert form when he tees it up in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC this week.

This time last year the South African posted 79-72 here and spent the weekend working on the range. It helped him make the cut in Doha, but he only scratched T42. It was in tune with his Middle East visits on the Challenge Tour. That he ended 2017 finishing T4 in the DP World Tour Championship says so much about how his game and confidence grew between those desert visits. He claimed a win in that period and added the Mauritius Open in December. T20 in the South African Open was a middling effort, but he is probably the next high quality South African to emerge and regularly contending in this grade of event will be his 2018 aim.

Rising star Hao Tong Li is all set to make his debut in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC this week.

The Chinese golfer was one of the undoubted stars of last week's EurAsia Cup. He drained a 12'0" final green putt to earn a day one fourball half which gave Asia an end-of-series advantage, added a foursomes triumph on day two and thrashed Paul Dunne 3-and-1 in the singles. It was a performance which ought to only add to the growing confidence of a golfer who has massive potential. This week will be his tournament and course debut, but he was T13 in the DP World Tour Championship so he is not entirely new to the UAE. He ranked fourth for Greens in Regulation that week and topped the Ball-Striking tables at the Hong Kong Open; more of the same will be useful this week.

Paul Dunne will want to rebuild a touch of confidence at this week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship hosted by the Abu Dhabi GC.

Dunne's first experience of team golf on the pro circuit will have left him with mixed emotions. The thrill will have been great, the victory sweet, but the fact he emerged with a 0-3 record will sting. He was the only member of the team not to add to the winning total. His response will be interesting. Plenty of players would use it as motivation. He arrives at the course with curious memories of this tournament on debut 12 months ago. He opened with rounds of 68-66 to lie T3, just two swings back of the lead, but slumped to weekend laps of 73-77 and T39. He has limited experience of the Middle East: he's 4-for-4 with a best of T21.

Alexander Levy needs to sharpen his record in the desert as he returns to for a sixth appearance in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC.

The Frenchman enjoyed his week playing a part in Europe's success in the EurAsia Cup. On the first day he and Henrik Stenson ran into the birdie-train that was Sung-Hoon Kang and Poom Saksanin, who were 8-under through eight. When Levy made birdie on nine for their first gain he theatrically raised his arms in triumph; a typical gesture of fun and love of the fight which endears him to crowds. He was 1-2 for the week, earning his point in a singles win over Kiradech Aphibarnrat. He doesn't have the greatest record in the Middle East: 17 starts and 7-for-13 when there is a cut (four of those cuts made at Emirates GC). He's 2-for-5 here, but his T20 in 2015 is his Middle East career best.

Patrick Reed and his wife, Justine, welcomed their second child into the world last month, and he'll make his first competitive start since the big event as he preps for this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

The five-time TOUR winner has been dormant since a T5 at the Hero World Challenge. He was on baby duty that week but his son didn't arrive until the following Wednesday (12/6/2017). Now he returns to a tournament where he owns a victory (2014) and a T12 (2017) in five tries. Only one of the courses used during the 2014 edition is still in the rotation this year (La Quinta CC). Without a win since the 2016 NORTHERN TRUST, Reed will surely be hungry in 2018. The safe play for gamers is to let him shake off the rust and then reinvest early and often. However, he's proven the ability to fire out of the gate without competitive rounds under his belt, winning the 2015 Tournament of Champions after a layoff over a month.
