Last Call for LPGA Prime Time

Yes, it's the last week the LPGA will be overseas. Next week they return to Arizona here in the US... but this week we get the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore.

Inbee Park, So Yeon Ryu and Michelle Wie

As usual, you can get the skinny on this event over at Tony Jesselli's blog. Last year, this was where Michelle Wie got her most recent win in dramatic style with a long putt on the final hole. This is her second week back on the Tour after hand surgery and, after a good showing last week, it'll be interesting to see how well she can defend.

Inbee Park also makes her first tournament appearance since the 2018 Evian. She'll be looking to pull one of Amy Yang's tricks, as Inbee won this event in 2015 and 2017.

And So Yeon Ryu is looking to get back into the winner's circle for the first time since 2018's Japan Women's Open Golf Championship on the JLPGA last September. Her last LPGA win came last June at the Meijer LPGA Classic.

This is another limited-field event -- only 63 players -- but Tony says the Top15 in the Rolex Rankings as well as 39 of the Top50 will be there. Jessica Korda is still out with an injured forearm but sister Nelly is teeing it up, as will Ariya Jutanugarn, Brooke Henderson and Georgia Hall, to name but a few. So we should see a very competitive event!

GC's coverage begins Wednesday night at 10:30pm ET. Singapore, here we come!
