2020 Taiwan LPGA Tour | TLPGA “Futures” to Get Underway Press Release
Date:2020-03-13

The TLPGA Future series is a new level of tournaments that offers NT$1.5 million in prize money and are just below the TLPGA Tour events. Unlike the TLPGA Heritage Tour, although they share some similarity as they provide easier access for local amateurs, the Futures are recognized as part of the Women′s World Golf ranking and the Women′s World Amateur Golf Ranking systems. In other words, players will now gain a portion of the world ranking points from the Futures, which is hoped to serve as a pathway for juniors or amateurs into the elite game.

Golfers who are between the age of 12 to 24, with a handicap of 10 or less are eligible to play the Future series. The Futures will feature a field with 60 pro women as well as 30 amateurs.

Based on their scores in the Futures (as well as the Future Challenges presented by the Taiwan High Tech Charity), amateur players will be given ranking points that will help them move in the TLPGA Tour events, provided there are alternate spots.

Following the outbreak of the COVID-19, golf events worldwide are paralyzed in concern of the health of the athletes and the general public, which drastically cut the potential income of any professional golfers. “We′ll do every measure to keep our staff and players healthy as we decided to continue the local events,” said Yi-Chen Liu, TLPGA chairwoman. The YICHEN Future Open in April, supported by “Yi-Chen Fan Club” will be the first ever Future series event to be held on the TLPGA Tour.

The upgraded YICHEN Future Open, originally listed as YICHEN Heritage Tour, will take place at the Tsai Hsing Elite Club from April 14-16 in a 54-hole, stroke-play format. The winner will pocket NT$270,000.

The tournament will not be open for the public in coronavirus precaution.
