YORK golfer Simon Dyson returns to European Tour action today at the Shenzhen International in China.

Dyson will be playing the first round with Australia's Wade Ormsby and Chinese amateur Qihao Pan.

The field also includes two times Masters champion Bubba Watson and Italian Edoardo Molinari - the winner of last week's Trophy Hassan II held in Morocco.

Dyson, 39, missed the cut by six shots last weekend following a six week break from Tour action.

The Shenzhen International is one of three events to be staged on the Chinese mainland during the 2017 season and offers a prize fund of $2.8million.
