This year’s championship, held in cooperation with the KLPGA and reflecting the authentic spirit of the LPGA, aimed to promote travel to Korea and advance the position of Asian golf in the global golf world.

The championship showcased a wealth of domestic and international talent, including not only top KLPGA athletes, such as Hye Jin Choi, A Yean Cho, and Jeongmin Cho, but also LPGA stars, such as Jin Young Ko, Danielle Kang, and Minjee Lee (etc.). The championship also featured many of Asia’s so-called “young guns,” such as Yealimi Noh, Athaya Thitikul, and Yuka Saso
