Golf: Four of the world’s top women golfers “walked on water”
Four of the world’s top women golfers “walked on water” in their business suits today to launch the sixth edition of the HSBC Women’s Champions 2013 in Singapore.
The spectacular event was held at Marina Bay with World Number One Yani Tseng, defending champion Angela Stanford, and two other world-class golfers, Suzann Pettersen and Paula Creamer.
The golfers, armed with both golf and business paraphernalia, looked as if they were “walking on water” in their business suits, an illustration of HSBC’s support for successful women around the world – in golf and in business.
Hoping to achieve her dream of winning this year’s tournament is Tseng, who said : “Singapore is always a highlight for me and it’s great to be part of a launch like this which gives us the opportunity to do something different and inspiring – I’ve spoken to some of the other girls and we definitely mean business this year.’
“I am excited about this year because according to my mum, the year of the Snake will be a good year for Dragon babies like me. I know all the best players in the world are here but I am going to give it everything to win.”
The annual tournament, which began in 2008, takes place from 28 February to 3 March at its new home, The Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club. Over the years, the US$1.4 million tournament has attracted a stellar field of players and the 2013 edition continues to attract the best in women’s golf with 63 of the world’s elite female golfers in Singapore, including 38 of the top 40 on the LPGA money list. The tournament is also the only LPGA-sanctioned event to be held in Singapore.
