SINGAPORE - Merry Christmas, Singapore! And hope to see you at the HSBC Women's World Championship in February 2019.

With the holiday season in full swing, some of the world's top female golfers who will tee off at the Feb 28-March 3 LPGA Tour tournament at Sentosa Golf Club's New Tanjong Course have sent their festive greetings to Singapore.

World No. 3 Ryu So-yeon of South Korea, No. 8 Georgia Hall of England and Spaniard Azahara Munoz also urged golf fans to turn up for the US$1.5 million (S$2.06 million) event.

The trio are in a star-studded field which also includes the likes of defending champion Michelle Wie, who announced in July she would be back to defend her title.
