Ladies European Tour (LET) officials announced with great excitement that the 2010 ANZ Ladies Masters has attracted the strongest field ever for any Australian professional golf tournament. Let’s see the strong team.
2009 European No.1 Sophie Gustafson has confirmed she'll return to the ANZ Ladies Masters for the first time in six years when she tees it up at the RACV Royal Pines Resort in March 2010. The 36-year-old Swede, who enjoyed a very successful year on both the Ladies European Tour (LET) and US LPGA, will certainly be a crowd pleaser at the tournament due to her big hitting and aggressive style of play.
2009 LPGA Major, Tour Championship and Ladies European Tour Rookie of the Year winner Anna Nordqvist will make her first appearance in Australia as a professional when she competes at the ANZ Ladies Masters to be played at the RACV Royal Pines Resort, Gold Coast, Queensland in March. The 22 year old Swede has enjoyed an amazing rookie year since turning professional.
The 2010 ANZ Ladies Masters at RACV Royal Pines on the Gold Coast provided even greater cause for celebration of its 20th anniversary when the tournament’s promoters Tuohy Associates announced that two of the most outstanding young talents in female golf are now confirmed for the event. 19 year old Taiwanese golfer, Yani Tseng. 20 year old Korean, Ji Yai Shin, have both confirmed their entry to play and while both have played the ANZ Ladies Masters previously, their stunning seasons have now placed them at another level in world golf.
And some of the other international players who'll come streaming in to play in the event, possibly to top up their annual earnings from a reduced LPGA schedule unlikely to be anywhere near as lucrative this year as it's been in the past, include three world-class Korean golfers in the form of Hee Young Park (36), Hee Kyung Seo (No.42) and M.J Hur (No.45) as well as Americans Stacey Lewis, one of her country’s most exciting young prospects. Flamboyant compatriot Christina Kim (No.48). Of course Australia’s best will all be there. Two of them have previously won the ANZ Ladies Masters. Webb is a six-time champion and Katherine Hull the defending champion.
Looking forward to the 2010 ANZ Ladies Masters. So exciting to meet these famous women golfers.
