Invitations for the HSBC Women’s World Championship 2024 have been announced, with four standout players joining an already stellar field at Sentosa Golf Club, Singapore from 29 February to 3 March, 2024.

The select invitees include Korea’s In Gee Chun, a decorated champion with three major titles to her name including the 2022 Women’s PGA Championship. Also securing their place in the tournament is Chinese rising star Muni He, who won the Prasco Charity Championship during her rookie year on the Epson tour in 2018. Since her arrival on the LPGA Tour in 2019, her impact has extended beyond the golf course, gaining recognition for her influence in the fashion world and amassing a significant social media following of 773k followers. Debuting in this year’s HSBC Women’s World Championship is China’s Miranda Wang, boasting a victory at the IOA Championship and four top-10 finishes on the Epson Tour last year. Completing the quartet is Shi Yuting, who made her debut at last year’s tournament and is currently playing on the JLPGA.

These four Asian stars will join 15-year-old Singaporean amateur Chen Xing Tong, who clinched victory at the recent HSBC Women’s World Championship National Qualifying at Sentosa Golf Club. Chen’s strong performance over the two-day event secured her victory by an impressive four shots, earning her a coveted LPGA debut to compete among the world’s top players in just over two weeks.

Kee Joo Wong, CEO HSBC Singapore said “We are thrilled to extend these sponsor invitations to deserving players from Asia, giving them the opportunity to compete in Asia’s major. At HSBC, we are dedicated to opening up a world of opportunity for women in sport, and it gives us great pleasure to bring together an elite field with 15 of the world’s top 20 players and representatives from 20 countries worldwide to the global hub of Singapore.”

Playing on the LPGA tour has always been my dream, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to make my second appearance in just a couple of weeks. Spending last year playing on the Epson Tour has taught me so much and hopefully by learning from these incredible experiences, I will achieve LPGA status by 2025.”
