The list of best players on the court includes world No. 1 Jin Young Ko, who is back to defend her title in the tournament. Ko was last seen at the CP Women’s Open before taking a much needed break to recover from her wrist injury. However, she returned to the court to win her 14th LPGA Tour title this year. Next on the list is Lydia Ko, who finished T3 the previous year in Korea.

She is followed by US Women’s Open winner Minjee Lee, as well as Atthaya Thittikul and Jennifer Kupcho. Kupcho recently won the Chevron Championship and is ready to show her abilities in the event again. While World No. 2 Atthaya Thittikul is also a tough contender for Jin Young Ko in the tournament. However, something that bothers fans of the tournament is the lack of Lexi Thompson of the event.

Since the inception of the LIV Golf League, most other tours have increased prize money for their events. The PGA Tour also showed a huge increase in their purses for each event towards the end of last season. However, despite all the competition, the LPGA remains the most successful tour for women’s golf.
