The Aramco Team Series returns for the sixth LET event of the season at Laguna National in Singapore.
The tournament is the first of five throughout the season, as 78 players compete in simultaneous team and individual competitions.
The team aspect features 26 groups of four and takes place over the first two days, with each having three professionals and an amateur, and the best two scores counting. The final round of the 54-hole competition features an individual battle for the title among the top 60 professionals and ties.
As well as $1m prize money shared equally between the team competition and individual competition, Rolex Rankings and Solheim Cup ranking points are also on offer in the tournament, while it is part of the Race to Costa del Sol Official Rankings, too.
Given the high states it is not surprising that some of the world’s best players feature. The highest profile player is undoubtedly World No.1 Lydia Ko. The New Zealander claimed victory in her last LET outing – February’s Aramco Saudi Ladies International, and she will be looking for an improvement on her tie for 31st in the LPGA Tour’s HSBC Women’s World Championship earlier this month.
She will face stiff competition, though, not least from the holder Manon De Roey. The Belgian claimed her maiden LET title in last May’s event in Bangkok with a three-shot win, and she enters the competition in excellent form, with three top-10 finishes so far in 2023. Australian Whitney Hillier, who captained her team to victory in the same tournament, also appears.
Aside from De Roey, several previous winners of the individual competition too – three Saudi Arabia winners, 2020 winner Emily Kristine Pedersen, Pia Babnik, who won in 2021 and Chiara Noka, who triumphed in 2022, as well as Marianne Skarpnord and Bronte Law, who won in London in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
Other standout names include World No.14 Danielle Kang and Race to Costa del Sol champion Linn Grant as players compete for the first prize of $75,000 in the individual event and a share of $105,000, which will be awarded to the winning team.
