The stars of Asia-Pacific women’s golf are set to battle it out for pride.
The Asian Golf Leaders Forum (AGLF) announced today that it will host the Simonez Asia Pacific Cup at Pondok Indah Golf Course in Jakarta, Indonesia, for three days starting December 21.
The tournament, which serves as a national championship for women’s golf in the Asia-Pacific region, will feature 58 players from 16 countries competing in 54 holes of stroke play.
Korea will be represented by Kim Min-byul (19), the rookie of the year on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour, as well as Hwang Yoo-min (20), Lee Da-yeon (26), and Lee So-young (26).
Amateur prospects Lee Hyo-song (15), the No. 1-ranked player on the Korea Golf Association (KGA), and Kim Min-sol (17) will also join the field.
South Korea won the inaugural event last year with Yoo So-yeon and Lee Bomi winning the team title, while Princess Mary Superior of the Philippines topped the individual competition.
Hwang Yoo-min, who competed in the event as an amateur last year, said, “I felt the course was very difficult, so I’m honored to have the opportunity to compete again, and I’m motivated to do well as it’s my second challenge.”
Thailand is represented by Ataya Thititjer, Jaravi Boonchant and Shanetti Warnersen, as well as Japan’s Hataoka Nasa, who has six career LPGA Tour wins. 카지노사이트가이드
