I doubt there is a covenant in his contract that states that he has to play the Japan Open. If there were, it would be bizarre and highly unusual.

Since he hasn't been dropped from UNIQLO for breach of contract I think we can infer that there was never such a clause.

Since he's getting the same amount of money regardless (assuming that Japan nor China is like the UK in taxing endorsement revenue, or that if they are that his expected Shanghai winnings will more than compensate for it) he may as well go for the bigger pot and the larger amount of points up for grabs.
