Singapore: World number six Ko Jin-young has confirmed she’ll return to Sentosa Golf Club in a bid to claim an unprecedented third successive HSBC Women’s World Championship this year.

The 27-year-old Korean will once more be among the main drawcards when the 16th edition of the LPGA Tour event takes place from February 29 to March 3 at the award-winning Singapore club’s Tanjong Course.

Ko said: “Last year’s win at Sentosa will always mean a lot to me. 2022 was a challenging year and being able to successfully defend my title at one of Asia’s major events and one of my favourite stops on Tour stirred up a lot of emotions for me.

“Singapore is truly an amazing city and every year we have the best time taking in the sights and enjoying world-class cuisine. I can’t wait to be back there in February and hopefully aiming for a third consecutive win.”

The 72-hole stroke play tournament will once again be played on the Tanjong Course at Sentosa Golf Club, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. It will be the 11th occasion that the Tanjong Course has been the venue.

Celebrated for its commitment to sustainability initiatives in golf globally, Sentosa Golf Club was named World’s Best Golf Course and Asia’s Best Golf Course at the 2023 World Golf Awards.

Kee Joo Wong, CEO at HSBC Singapore, said: “HSBC is committed to opening up a world of opportunity for women in sport and to bringing the best of the world to Singapore.

“We’re delighted to welcome back our defending champion, Ko Jin-young, whose thrilling final-round performance was a highlight of last year’s event. Against the backdrop of Singapore, recognised as one of the world’s most dynamic cities, this world-class tournament finds the perfect stage at Sentosa Golf Club, and we couldn’t be more excited for the 2024 edition.”
