The fourth event on the LPGA Tour’s 2024 schedule is nearing its close. The HSBC Women’s World Championship is unique in itself as it possesses no cut, and hence, there is no risk for the pros to miss the last two rounds. And now, at the Sentosa Golf Club, the championship is in the final few hours of its run.

This week, the field of what is only the second Asian event on the Tour has many big stars. Along with 20-time LPGA Tour winner Lydia Ko and World No. 1 Lilia Vu, many rising stars like 8-time JLPGA Tour winner Ayaka Furue and Andrea Lee are on the greens, too. But, of course, there can only be one winner. And with a six-figure check at stake, it is certainly not coming in easy for anyone!

Fun fact: The HSBC Women’s World Championship’s prize purse is $300,000 more than the men’s event at the DP World Tour happening at the SDC Championship ($1.5 million) in South Africa this week.

Notably, the payout of the prize money could be subject to a change, seeing how three players have since withdrawn from the event, bringing its field size down to 63. Regardless, one thing is certain: the winner will take home a huge sum. And if the defending champion, Jin Young Ko, proves to be that victor, she’ll also make history!

Jin Young Ko is no ordinary defending champion. The LPGA pro has won both the 2022 and 2023 editions of the event, making her a rare 2-time defending champ eyeing her three-peat this year. She ended round 3 as a top contender, too, tied for 5th at the HSBC Women’s World Championship.

If Ko does manage to pull off this three-peat, the 26-time LPGA Tour winner will go down in history for 3 victories at the same event, which last came 9 years ago when Inbee Park won her third straight Women’s PGA Championship. Ko has been open about eyeing a win, too. She even claimed that if she took home the trophy, she would buy a house in Singapore to celebrate!
