Rory McIlroy is hoping to snare his maiden WGC-HSBC Champions title on his sixth visit to the Sheshan International Golf Club this week as he builds toward the climax of his season in Dubai.Northern Ireland's world No. 3 will face strong competition when the $9.5 million event, East Asia's richest, tees off Thursday, with all four reigning major champions and eight of the world's top 10 in the field.McIlroy has not finished outside the top 11 in his previous five visits to the course with three top-five finishes, so has some justification for feeling that a win is overdue.British Open champion Stenson won back-to-back titles in Dubai in 2013 and 2014 and the Race to Dubai in 2013 .
