American golfers Alison Lee, Austin Ernst and Jessica Korda enjoying a surprise double birthday celebration for Lee (who turned 21 on Sunday) and Korda (23 yesterday) at the Greyhound Cafe in Paragon shopping centre yesterday. The trio, together with England's Charley Hull and Scotland's Catriona Matthew, are taking part in this week's HSBC Women's Champions tournament. But they took time off for a leisurely afternoon of light canapes and shopping at Tod's, Loewe and Jimmy Choo before the 10th edition of the Ladies Professional Golf Association competition begins at the Sentosa Golf Club on Thursday.
