Golf Australia Express : Issue 24
SINGAPORE’S TROPICAL setting marks the LPGA Tour’s final event of a three-week Australasian/ Asian swing. And with its stellar field boasting 64 of the best women in the game, the HSBC Women’s Champions 2012 is sure to once again produce some pretty hot golf. Now into its fifth year, winning scores around the Tanah Merah Country Club track have ranged from 10-under by Japan’s Ai Miyazato in 2010 to an incredible 20-under par recorded by a dominant Mexican in Lorena Ochoa in 2008. In 2009 Korea’s Jiyai Shin won with 11-under. And reigning champion— Australia’s Karrie Webb— made it to 13-under last year, thrilling record crowds when she stormed home in 33 to come from three back at the 10th to eventually win by a shot. OTG WORLD NO.4 Cristie Kerr hasn’t won since she trounced the field by a whopping12-shots at the 2010 LPGA Championship. But the 34-year-old American has solid form at this track. In the past three outings she’s finished 11th, 2nd and 9th respectively. She led the 2011 LPGA putting stats and with the tricky greens at Tanah Merah calling for supreme putting, this week’s tournament could well be the one where Kerr re-ignites her career. AIMIYAZATO must be in the mix this week. The 2010 event champion has been a prolific winner on Tour with more than 20 titles under her belt. Last year the 26-year-old from Japan won the Evian Masters and had six top 10s. She’s the world No.11, is in good form— she finished second in Thailand last week—and has fond memories at this course. Sounds like a cocktail for success to us.
