From Thailand to Singapore

The LPGA finishes its two-step Asian Swing in Singapore at the HSBC Women’s World Championship.

Defending champion Jin Young Ko

The HSBC is sometimes called "Asia's Major" but this week it may be more like a sauna bath. The temperature is expected to be in the low-80s F, windspeeds in the low teens... and nearly FOUR INCHES of rain is expected during the four-day event. This is compounded by the amount of rain the course has already endured. Director of Agronomy Andrew Johnston said, “This is the wettest season in more than 100 years with daily rain since October."

In other words, this course is going to play LONG.

As discouraging as that might sound, it's not deterring the players. The field is 66 players with no cut, and 17 of the Rolex Top20 are there to tee it up. This is the 15th anniversary of the event and everyone seems ready. Defending champion Jin Young Ko seems to have her game back in shape after that prolonged wrist injury last year, and the rest of the field is eager to take that big trophy away from her ASAP!

GC's live coverage starts TONIGHT (that's Wednesday here in the States) at 9:30pm ET. If you like courses that make the players work, you're probably going to love the Tanjong Course at Sentosa Golf Club this week. When all is said and done, it certainly sounds like the HSBC will have earned that reputation as Asia's Major!
