The Ladies Are in Singapore

The HSBC Women's Champions event this week is in Singapore. Rather than do a preview myself, I'll just refer you to Tony Jesselli's preview over at Mostly Harmless. He always manages to do a good overview... and usually with fewer wasted words than I would!

Here's a photo of the Serapong Course (from the tournament's main page) where the HSBC will be played. Quite an exotic looking place, don't you think?

As many of you know, some of the ladies were involved in a car accident last week on the way to the tournament. Although Ai Miyazato withdrew from the event because of the wreck, both Paula Creamer and Suzann Pettersen are playing. At the time I'm writing this, Creamer has already finished her first round and posted a 4-under 68. She had tweeted that she would probably be sore for a few weeks but it doesn't appear to have hurt her game much so far. We'll have to see how she holds up after several rounds.

More good news -- Ariya Jutanugarn, who had that horrible final hole in last week's event in Thailand, seems to have rebounded just fine. Her round is still in progress, but she's 3-under after 16 holes.

GC will be broadcasting the first round for a couple of hours starting at 12:30pm ET, in case you're interested in catching some of it. And you can check out the scores here if you like.
