DAMARU-Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2016. Michelle Wie 

KUALA LUMPUR, 13 September 2016 – Defending champion# Jessica Korda will have her work cut out for her this October as she seeks to retain her title against fierce competition, with this year’s field consisting all of the LPGA’s Money List’s top ten golfers. New Zealand’s# Lydia Ko and Canada’s #Brooke Henderson, ranked 1 st and 3 rd respectively, had previously announced their participation in the tournament, and will now be joined by current world no. 2,# Ariya Jutanugarn.*

The Thai powerhouse has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the sport since turning professional in
2012. #Jutanugarn has enjoyed a stellar 2016 so far, securing five wins and remarkable tournament winnings of over US$2 million to date.

Jutanugarn is no stranger to Malaysia’s premier golf tournament as well, having made her debut in Malaysia’s capital back in 2012 as an amateur. The then 16-year- old announced her arrival on the big stage in style, finishing in a highly impressive joint ninth and winning the top-placed amateur prize.

Jutanugarn said: “I’m really excited about returning to Kuala Lumpur for the tournament. I’ve always enjoyed playing here since I first played here back in 2012. It’s been a great year for me so far and I’m feeling good at the moment, so I’m looking forward to improving on last year’s result.”
