GALLERY: Ridiculous WGC-HSBC Champions promotional pictures

The WGC-HSBC Champions is the final World Golf Championships event of the year, and it's the only one that isn't contested in North America. The China-based event has a reputation for two things: a strong end-of-year field...and ridiculous, staged pre-tournament promotional photos featuring the top players in the field.

Every. Damn. Year.

Whether it's Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods wielding swords, Jason Dufner deadpan in traditional Chinese garb or Bubba Watson looking upset before drumming, these photos are the absolute best. So we've compiled some for you.
