KUALA LUMPUR, 1 October 2015 – Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2015 today announced a star-studded field for the Asian Swing curtain-raiser, which tees off at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC) on Thursday 8 October.
Once again, the annual show-piece boasts a field that would be the envy of any golf tournament anywhere in the world with 63 out of top 66 players on the official LPGA Money List, including nine out of the top 10 ranked players, due to touch down in the capital over the weekend. *
The field contains no less than 18 players from last month’s thrilling Solheim Cup, including Paula Creamer, Brittany Lang, Alison Lee, Stacy Lewis, Morgan Pressel, Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie from the victorious Team USA; while Team Europe will be represented by Sandra Gal, Charley Hull, Karine Icher, Catriona Matthew, Azahara Munoz, Anna Nordqvist, Suzann Pettersen and Melissa Reid.
In addition, 12 players will compete at the tournament under sponsor invites on account of their valued contribution to the game over the years or the considerable promise they show for the future. Christina Kim (U.S.), Ryann O’Toole (U.S.), Melissa Reid (England), Paula Reto (South Africa), and Jennifer Rosales (Philippines), will join Cheyenne Woods (U.S.) and Aditi Ashok (India), who won the local qualifying tournament will be the first Indian player to feature in the tournament.
The 75 player field is completed by the five strong Malaysian Angels, consisting of qualifiers Nur Durriyah and Cindy Lee-Pridgen, and Malaysia’s top three World Ranked professionals, Kelly Tan, Michelle Koh and Ainil Bakar, ensuring that Malaysian fans have plenty of local talent to follow when the action starts.
