Thats a good question? I don't think it does this year. Just looking at Wickapedia there is no mentioned that its a sanction US PGA tour event. And that would seem to be reinforced by the lack of Americans in it.

I stand corrected

World Golf Championships (WGC): A set of events co-sanctioned by the International Federation of PGA Tours which attract the leading golfers from all over the world, including those who are not members of the PGA Tour. Note that the HSBC Champions was made a WGC event mid-season. It will not count as an official money event or an official win, but the winner will be invited to the 2010 winners-only SBS Championship (previously known as the Mercedes-Benz Championship)
