The entry list for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship has just been published, with MacIntyre and Warren set to be joined in the $8 milion Rolex Series event by Stephen Gallacher, David Law, Richie Ramsay, Scott Jamieson, David Drysdale and Grant Forrest.

With the 2019 Race to Dubai rankings being used instead of last year’s standings due to the season being curtailed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Calum Hill and Connor Syme are both on the reserve list.
