The 72-hole invitation-only tournament, widely considered amongst the players as “Asia’s Major”, drew 49 of the top-50 players on the LPGA money-list in 2012 and has one of the most challenging qualification criteria of any golf event in the world. To be sure of their spot in the event, a player must either have won an LPGA tournament in the preceding year or finish that year in the top-20 in the Official Rolex Rankings.
American and five-time LPGA Tour winner Angela Stanford took home the winner’s cheque of US$210,000 in 2012 following a hotly contested tournament that saw the American triumph in a four-way play-off against Korean teenager Jenny Shin, Korea’s world No.2 Na Yeon Choi and China’s Shanshan Feng. Past winners include a host of international stars and former world No. 1s in Lorena Ochoa (Mexico), Jiyai Shin (South Korea), Ai Miyazato (Japan) and Karrie Webb (Australia).
