Taipei, Oct. 19 (CNA) Golfers from around the world have been arriving in Taiwan over the past two days for the US$2 million Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship, the Taiwan leg of the LPGA tour.
The players, including world No. 2 Lydia Ko and Jessica Korda, who won the LPGA Malaysia event that just concluded on Oct. 11, were met by fans when they arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport on Monday.
Other players who arrived Monday were world No. 10 Suzann Pettersen of Norway, world No. 16 Na Yeon Choi and world No. 8 Amy Yang of South Korea, and world No. 23 Michelle Wie of the United States.
Taiwan’s Yani Tseng, whose subpar seasons the past two years have hurt local interest in her home event, may have rekindled interest with three top-five finishes in her last four LPGA tournaments. [FULL STORY]
