The world's best female golfer Tseng Ya-ni will return to Singapore next month for a shot at winning her first HSBC Women's Champions title.

Last year's winner, American Angela Stanford (world No.19), will also return to defend her title in the US$1.4 million (S$1.71 million) event.

Norway's Suzann Pettersen (No.6), Japan's Ai Miyazato (No.9) and crowd favourite Paula Creamer of the United States will also lend their star power to the tournament, which will be played on Sentosa's Serapong Course.

The invitation-only event, which features the best players on the LPGA tour, will take place from Feb 28 to March 3.
