HSBC Women’s World Championship Winners and History

HSBC Women’s World Championship Winners and History

Inaugurated in 2008, the HSBC Women’s World Championship is a limited field event held in Singapore and sanctioned by the LPGA. It replaced the HSBC Women’s Match Play Championship, which ran from 2005 – 2007.

The current field consists of 63 players. To ensure an invitation, a player must have won an LPGA tournament in 2013 or have finished the year in the Top 20 of the Rolex Rankings. Others are invited based on rankings. Because it is a limited field event, there is no cut. All competitors will play four rounds.

In 2008 and 2008, the field was 78 players, with a $2 million purse. The current purse is $1.4 million, with the winner taking $210,000.

The HSBC Women’s Champions tournament was played on the Garden Course of the Tanah Merah Country Club in eastern Singapore, adjacent to Singapore Changi Airport from 2008 to 2012. It is now played at the Serapong Course at the Sentosa Golf Club in Sentosa.
