2018 Taiwan LPGA Tour | Party Golfers Ladies Open Press Conference Notes

This week on the TLPGA Tour will see the Party Golfers Ladies Open return to the schedule, featuring a prize purse of $100,000. The 2018 Party Golfers Ladies Open, co-sanctioned by the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour (LPGT), will be played through Oct 3-5 at the National Garden Golf and Country Club in Miaoli.

2016 champion Chen I-Wen (陳依妏) will be defending her title in the fourth edition of the Party Golfers Ladies Open, which was first held in 2014 but had a one-year break in 2017 when members of the Party Golfers were occupied as a supporting role in the qualification event of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship that year. However, with Party Golfers’ Chief Executive Ms. Lin L.C. endeavoring to extend their vision and continue to prosper the women’s golf community, the Party Golfers Open is now brought back on Tour, in an even higher status than ever with the LPGT joining forces to co-stage and bring in five of its best players from the Philippines.

It will award $18,000 to the champion. Title hopefuls include former LPGT Order of Merit winner Cyna Rodriguez, current leader Princess Mary Superal, second-ranked Ploychompoo Wilairungrueng, China LPGA Tour money leader Saranporn Langkulgasettrin, as well as all top six on the TLPGA circuit.

Last week’s KENDA Tire TLPGA Open champion Lu Hsin-Yu (盧昕妤) and runner-up Supamas Sangchan, equal-third-place finishers Lee Hsin (李欣) and Babe Liu (劉依貞) are also in the field, hoping to ride on the good momentum. TLPGA No.1 Chen Yu-Ju (陳宇茹) will be eyeing a record third title in this season.

The full entry list consists of 105 players from Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, the United States, and hosting nation Taiwan. A cut will be made to the low 50 and ties after Round 2 on Thursday. The top Taiwanese finisher on Friday will win herself a wildcard into the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship later this month.

Title sponsor, the Party Golfers, is an amateur golf team comprised of local entrepreneurs, who share a strong passion for the golf sport as they lent their support selflessly and pushed the happening of the first Party Golfers Open in 2014.

Located on the Huoyan Mountain in, the National Garden Golf Club provides golfers with breathtaking views of the Taiwan Strait and allows them to appreciate its collection of sculpture pieces by renowned Chinese artist Yang Yingfeng which can be seen around the fairways and at the club’s entrance and vestibule. Set at 6,281 yards long, the Party Golfers Ladies Open this years offers a hole-in-one prize on Hole No.14; the first player who holes out from the 14th tee will take away a Ulysse Nardin timepiece worth NT$347,900.

A pro-am event took place on Tuesday with 33 pros and almost a hundred amateur golfers joining at the competition venue in pleasing weather conditions, despite that a typhoon looms from the east which will be expected to bring some rain toward the weekend, as the 4-player team led by Filipino Marvi Monsalve took home the first prize.

First-round action of the 2018 Party Golfers Ladies Open is set to begin at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
