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.”

 

 

24-year-old Miranda Wang added, “I am extremely thankful to HSBC for awarding me this invitation and providing me the amazing opportunity to compete in Asia’s major for the first time. 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.”
