Preview: 2015 Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship

The Asian swing continues for the LPGA Tour as they head to Taiwan for 2015 Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship. The event will be held at the Miramar Golf Country Club October 22 thru 25. During last year’s edition Inbee Park hold off American Stacy Lewis after carding a final round of 1-under par and hoisted the trophy with a 22-under par. Park will not defend her title this week as she will be staying in South Korea for a sponsor commitment.

This will be the fifth edition of the event and only the second year to be played at the Miramar Country Club. The tournament was previously held at the Sunrise Golf & Country Club.

The field will feature the past champions Suzann Pettersen and Yani Tseng, who will enter the week with a good momentum after their performances in South Korea. The field will be completed by 80 players and will include some of the top players in the Rolex Rankings like Stacy Lewis, Lydia Ko and Brittany Lincicome.

Suzann Pettersen has won the tournament twice (2012 & 2013), when it was known as the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship and will be one of the players to follow.
