Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - BUZZ -

Ma­jor winners Ariya Ju­tanu­garn and Danielle Kang, along with Sime Darby LPGA 2015 cham­pion Jes­sica Korda; have joined Ly­dia Ko and Brooke Hen­der­son in con­firm­ing their at­ten­dance at the

Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia, which re­turns to TPC Kuala Lumpur from 26th to 29th Oc­to­ber 2017. The cham­pi­onship, now in its eighth show­ing, has gar­nered a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the most en­ter­tain­ing events on the LPGA cal­en­dar, and is un­likely to dis­ap­point this Oc­to­ber, with an ac­tion-packed spec­ta­cle planned both in and out­side the ropes. Once again em­body­ing the slo­gan Women with Drive, the cham­pi­onship will serve as an in­spi­ra­tion to the next gen­er­a­tion of Malaysian sportswoman. Mean­while, as with each edition since its in­au­gu­ral year, the event will again show­case its sup­port for Breast Cancer Aware­ness Month, with play­ers don­ning pink on the penul­ti­mate day of the tour­na­ment, to raise funds and aware­ness for the fight against cancer in Malaysia. The fundrais­ing has en­abled Cancer Re­search Malaysia to in­crease aware­ness about breast and ovar­ian cancer among Malaysian women, es­pe­cially those from lower in­come house­holds, as well as im­prove their ac­cess to treat­ment. The eighth edition of the US$1.8 mil­lion purse Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia will take place on the East Course of TPC

Kuala Lumpur with a to­tal of 78 play­ers, in­clud­ing 63 play­ers from the LPGA Tour will com­pete in the 72-hole stroke play, no cut tour­na­ment.
