The coveted places were awarded to the three ‘Malaysian Angels’ in acknowledgement of their continued progress as professional golfers and will see them spearheading the local challenge against a star-studded LPGA field including defending champion Jessica Korda. All three players are graduates of the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia Development Programme.

Malaysia’s top ranked player and LPGA Tour regular, Kelly Tan, is currently ranked 159 in the world rankings and 73 on the LPGA Money List, and might gain automatic qualification for the tournament and not be dependent on the exemption place.
