The 15th edition of the HSBC Women’s World Championship is set to begin on Thursday, March 2nd, with a star-studded field of the world’s best players, including five of the top-ranked players: No.1 Lydia Ko[0] No.3,[1] Number 6, Min[1] Brooke Henderson and defending champion and World No.5, Jin Young Ko.[2] It is fondly known as “Asia’s Major” and rightly so, as 11 of its 13 champions have won at least one major championship.[3] All five major champions from 2022, including Chevron champion Jennifer Kupcho (USA), KPMG Women’s PGA champion In Gee Chun (South Korea), U.S. Women’s Open champion Minjee Lee (Australia), Amundi Evian champion Brooke Henderson (Canada) and AIG Women’s Open champion Ashleigh Buhai (South Africa), will be competing this week.[4]

The tournament is to be held at the renowned Tanjong Course of Sentosa Golf Club, a leading light in driving sustainability initiatives in golf around the world.[4] This marks the tenth edition at the course. Number Lydia Ko said, “I’m so happy to hear that we will have fans back this year but I am even more delighted for our tournament sponsor HSBC to have fans back on site to celebrate this important 15th anniversary with them.”[1] Defending champion Jin Young Ko added, “Winning last year was very special but I really missed having fans there to celebrate the victory with me so it will be fantastic to see everyone back this year.”[1]

Number Nelly Korda said, “It is so nice to be back in Singapore again. I played a practice round this morning and the course is in absolutely perfect condition, the set up looks great and, of course everything is absolutely beautiful.”[1] While Kee Joo Wong, CEO HSBC Singapore said, “HSBC is committed to opening up a world of opportunity for women in sport and to bringing the best of the world to Singapore.[1] We are thrilled with the world class line-up for the 15th anniversary of the HSBC Women's World Championship and we can't wait to celebrate this milestone with the golfers and fans, as well as our customers, colleagues and communities.[1]
