WORLD No. 2 Sung Hyun Park sees action before Filipino fans in three weeks time as she topbills the first $100,000 The Country Club Ladies Invitational on March 6-8 at the TCC course in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
A two-time Major champion and only the second player to win the Rookie and Player of the Year honors on the LPGA Tour in 2017, Park is expected to set the standard in the 54-hole championship which will also feature the leading players on the LPGA of Taiwan and the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour and top shotmakers in the region.
The talented 26-year-old Park , whose signed a two-year deal with Solaire, is set to compete in the Women’s World Championship in Singapore before headlining the field in the inaugural The Country Club Ladies Invitational.
But the 26-year-old from Seoul expects a tough challenge from five of the top 15 players on the TLPGA, including Babe Liu, Hsin Lee, Tzu Chi Lin, Chia Pei Lee and Yu Ning Huang, along with the cream of the country’s pro crop, headed by Dottie Ardina, Princess Superal and Pauline del Rosario.
“We expect nothing but three days of world class golf not only from Park but also from the rest of the elite cast,” said Colo Ventosa, general manager of the organizing Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.
