The HSBC Women's World Championship 2020 is set to make a roaring return to the Lion City, which will see some of the world's finest female golfers arrive in Singapore to battle for the global crown.

The tournament often known as 'Asia's Major' will take place between February 27 - March 1 at the New Tanjong Golf Course. Nestled at the heart of Sentosa island, a popular tourist attraction, the facility is set against Singapore's picturesque straits with views of the metropolitan city asserting a unique yet calm golfing experience.

The competition itself is one of the most sought-after in women's golf outside the five Major Championships and is the sixth event in the 2020 LPGA Tour calendar after Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, Gainbridge LPGA, ISPS Handa Vic Open, ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open and Honda LPGA Thailand.

This edition will feature several top stars from across the globe, including World number 2 Sung Hyun Park, who is set to return to Singapore to defend her 2019 title. The South Korean's scintillating display of skill saw her win a close battle against Australia's Minjee Lee by two shots.

The 26-year-old has already won two major championships in her career, including the U.S. Women's Open in 2017 and the Women's PGA Championship in 2018.

The tournament's 12th edition is another step in Singapore's emergence as a global sporting powerhouse after successfully hosting the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix, Singapore Rugby Sevens and Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon.
