LORENO OCHOA | MEXICO Back

Nationality Mexico
D.O.B. 15 November 1981
Age 33
Height 5'6"
Rolex World Ranking 6 (as of 15 December 2014)
Lorena was the top-ranked female golfer in the world for more than three years, from April 2007 to her retirement in May 2010. As the first Mexican golfer of either gender to be ranked number one in the world, she is considered the best Mexican golfer of all time.

Ochoa took up golf at the age of five, won her first state event at the age of six, and her first national event at seven. In her rookie season on the LPGA Tour in 2003, she had eight top-10 finishes, including runner-up finishes at the Wegmans Rochester and Michelob Light Open at Kingsmill, ending the season as the Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year and ninth on the LPGA official money list.

Her achievements as a golfer were recognized outside the sport when Ochoa won the 2006 Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year award and received the National Sports Prize for the second time. Also in 2007, Ochoa became the first woman ever to earn more than $4,000,000 in a single season, surpassing Sörenstam's previous record of $2,863,904.

Ochoa competed in 173 LPGA events as a member, recording 27 wins and claiming the prestigious LPGA Player of the Year award for four consecutive years from 2006 – 2009. In 2008 she won the inaugural HSBC Women's Champions by a staggering 11 stroke margin over fellow competitor Annika Sorenstam.

On April 23, 2010, she announced her retirement from active play on the LPGA Tour on the third anniversary of her ascent to Rolex Rankings No. 1. Ochoa still retains her LPGA tour card and made a limited return to competitive golf in 2012, having been invited by her sponsor, Lacoste, to compete in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France, an event on the Ladies European Tour. Ochoa finished the event in T22, 13 shots behind the winner Stacey Keating. Ochoa also competed in the 2012 edition of her own event, the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

Ochoa is widely recognised as one of the true greats of the game.

JIYAI SHIN | SOUTH KOREA Back

Nationality South Korea
D.O.B. 28 April 1988
Age 26
Height 5'1"
Rolex World Ranking 35 (as of 15 December 2014)
Ranked World Number 1 in 2010 on the Women's World Golf Rankings, South Korean Jiyai Shin is a regular player on both the LPGA Tour and the LPGA Korea Tour (KLPGA). In 2005, Shin was the only amateur to win a KLPGA event that season when she won the SK Enclean Invitational. Her professional career as a golfer started at the end of 2005 season.

Shin qualified for the LPGA Tour after winning the 2008 RICOH Women's British Open and was granted Priority List Category 7 for the 2009 LPGA season. Since then she has notched up an impressive 11 LPGA Tour victories, the most recent being the 2013 ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open.

In 2009 she became the season's first Rolex First-Time Winner with an eight-stroke, come-from-behind victory, the largest of the 2009 LPGA Tour season, at the HSBC Women's Champions, which was also her first official victory as an LPGA member.

In 2014 Shin played just five LPGA Tour sanctioned tournaments, recording a best place T16 in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. In 2013, Shin made 19 cuts out of 20 events, achieved 5 top-10 finishes; 2 top-5 finishes including one win in ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open, crossed the $6 million mark in career earnings with a T35 finish at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G and was ranked ninth on Tour in scoring average.

Shin had made 18 cuts at 18 events in 2012 and crossed the $5 million mark in career earnings with her win at the Kingsmill Championship where she defeated Paula Creamer in a nine-hole, two-day playoff. She won her second-career major championship at the RICOH Women's British Open with the tournament's largest margin of victory (9 strokes) and crossed the $1 million mark in season earnings. She was ranked first in Rounds Under Par (47), third in Driving Accuracy (83%) and third in scoring average (70.31).

Shin started playing golf at the age of 11 and credits her father Jeseop Shin and her coach Hyunjee Chun (a LPGA T&CP Class A member) as the individuals most influencing her career. Away from the golf course, her hobbies include listening to music, watching movies and reading.

AI MIYAZATO | JAPAN Back

Nationality Japan
D.O.B. 19 June 1985
Age 29
Height 5'2"
Rolex World Ranking 104 (as of 15 December 2014)
Ai Miyazato is a Japanese professional golfer who currently competes on both the LPGA Tour and the LPGA of Japan Tour (JLPGA). She was the top-ranked golfer in the Women's World Golf Rankings on three occasions in 2010.

As an amateur in 2003, she won a professional event on the LPGA of Japan Tour – the Dunlop Ladies Open in Miyagi Prefecture. In February 2005, she represented Japan with Rui Kitada and won the inaugural Women's World Cup of Golf. In the same year, she won six events on the JLPGA tour, and was ranked 2nd player.

Miyazato's nine LPGA Tour Victories include 2009 Evian Masters, 2010 Honda PTT LPGA Thailand, HSBC Women's Champions, Tres Marias Championship, ShopRite LPGA Classic, Safeway Classic, 2011 Evian Masters and 2012 LPGA LOTTE Championship, Walmart NW Arkansas Championship. She has 58 top-ten finishes to her name and over US$ 7.5 million in prize money to her name.

Her victory in the HSBC Women's Champions in 2010 saw her become the first player since 1966 to win consecutive season-opening events with the Honda PTT LPGA Thailand, where she won by one stroke over Suzann Pettersen with a career-low and tournament-record 63 in the final round, followed by the win at the HSBC Women's Champions at Tanah Merah County Club.

In 2012, she made 20 cuts in 23 events, with two victories and nine additional top-10 finishes. In addition, she crossed the $7 million mark in career earnings and finished in the top-10 in rounds under par (4), rounds in the 60s (6), top- 10 finishes (4), fairways (9), scoring average (6), putting average (4) and GIR putting average (5). In the same year, she also won the William and Mousie Powell Award for LPGA.

In 2013, she made 18 cuts in 20 events with 2 top- 10 finishes and recorded a season-best runner up finish at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup.

2014 was a disappointing year by her standards, as she failed to claim a single win or top ten finish – the closest coming at the Marathon Classic in July where she tied in twelfth place. Renowned for her striking appearance and good dress sense on course, she is, however, always a fan favourite wherever she goes in Asia and is sure to put in a big effort for the tournament she once won.

KARRIE WEBB | AUSTRALIA Back

Nationality Australia
D.O.B. 21 December 1974
Age 39
Height 5'6"
Rolex World Ranking 9 (as of 15 December 2014)
Karrie Ann Webb is Australia's most successful female professional golfer, and one of the greatest players in the history of women's golf. She plays mainly on the LPGA Tour, although turns out once or twice a year on the LPGA Tour in her home country. She is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and has 41 wins on the LPGA Tour, more than any other active player.

Webb was a member of the Australian Amateur team, making six international appearances from 1992–1994, including a 1994 appearance in the Espirito Santo Trophy World Amateur Golf Team Championships. This was the year she became the Australian Strokeplay Champion where she scored a 128 on a par 68 course, over 36 holes.

She successfully defended her U.S. Women's Open title in 2001 and won the LPGA Championship to become the youngest winner of the LPGA Career Grand Slam. She teamed with David Duval to play against Annika Sörenstam and Tiger Woods in a made-for-TV Battle at Bighorn between the two best male and two best female players in the world which at that time provided women's golf its largest audience ever.

In 2011 she claimed victory in the fourth edition of the HSBC Women's Champions at the Tanah Merah Country Club with a single shot victory.

In 2014, Webb made 18 cuts in 19 events, won ISPS Handa Australian Women's Open, overcame a six-shot final round deficit at the 2014 JTBC Founders Cup to win with a final-round 63 and finished second at Evian Championship 2014.

Her 41 LPGA Tour victories places her tied for 10th with Babe Zaharias on the list of players with the most career LPGA tournament wins and first among all active players.

PAULA CREAMER | USA Back

Nationality USA
D.O.B. 5 August 1986
Age 28
Height 5'9"
Rolex World Ranking 19 (as of 15 December 2014)
One of the most respected players on the LPGA Tour, Paula Creamer has won 10 LPGA tournaments, claimed 94 top ten finished, banked more than US$11 million in winnings and has been ranked as high as number 2 in the Women's World Golf Rankings, since turning professional in 2005.

Creamer's 2014 began with two T-3 finishes in her first two tournaments, the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open and the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic. On March 2, 2014, Creamer captured her first LPGA tournament since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, winning the HSBC Women's Champions tournament in Singapore in sensational fashion.

Tied with Azahara Muñoz after 72 holes, Creamer sank a 75-foot eagle putt on the second playoff hole, to secure the win and sending the crowd into a frenzy of excitement. The putt has since been voted ‘LPGA Putt of the Year' for 2014 and will go down as one of the defining moments in the history of the tournament.

Creamer's drives are relatively short; her 2012 average driving distance of about 245 yards ranked 193rd on the LPGA Tour. She has ranked among the tour leaders in greens in regulation percentage, and is considered an accurate ball-striker.

As an amateur, Creamer won numerous junior golf titles, including 11 American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) tournaments. At the age of 12, she won 13 consecutive regional junior events in northern California, and the following year she became the top-ranked female junior golfer in the state, before moving to Bradenton, Florida in 2000 and enrolling at IMG Academy.

Due to her fondness for wearing pink, Creamer's friend Casey Wittenberg nicknamed her the "Pink Panther." The sobriquet followed her when she turned professional. In addition to her pink outfits, Creamer sports the color on several of her golf accessories, including her club grips and golf bag. Creamer also uses a Pink Panther club head cover, in a nod to her nickname. Just married, she is always a favourite among fans when playing on the Asian circuit.

STACY LEWIS | USA Back

Nationality USA
D.O.B. 16 February 1985
Age 29
Height 5'5"
Rolex World Ranking 2 (as of 15 December 2014)
One of the most respected players on the LPGA tour, Stacy Lewis became just the second American to hold the world number one position in the Women's World Golf Rankings, when she rose to the top position for four weeks in 2013, buoyed by a gritty display that saw her claim victory at the HSBC Women's Champions early that year.

With week-in, week-out consistency in 2014, which included three wins and 18 top-ten finishes; she dominated the number one position for most of the year. Despite conceding top spot to Inbee Park in the latter stages of 2014, she went on to win the prestigious Rolex Player of the Year award for the second time.

Lewis has continued to show remarkable form and is always a major contender for every tournament she plays. With 11 LPGA tour victories and 74 top ten finishes in a career that has seen her win over US$ 8.5 in prize money to date, she is undoubtedly one of the true stars of the game.

In the 2012 season, Lewis won four tournaments and became the first American player to win the Rolex Player of the Year award since Beth Daniel in 1994. She also recorded 16 additional top-10 finishes, including three runner-ups. This form saw her lead the tour in birdies, eagles and rounds in the 60s.

In 2011 Lewis became a Rolex First-Time Winner at the Kraft Nabisco Championship where she defeated Rolex Rankings No. 1 Yani Tseng by three shots for her first major championship victory. She recorded 12 other top-10 finishes including: runner-up at the Evian Masters; tied for second at the CN Canadian Women's Open; fifth at the Avnet LPGA Classic; and tied for fifth at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia. Lewis competed in her first U.S. Solheim Cup Team with a 1-3-0 record.

During the same year, she won the inaugural Kia Community Assist Award for her work with the Angela Stanford Foundation which funds scholarships for Texas students whose families have been affected by cancer. The award recognizes exceptional contributions to charity organizations or community programs.

In 2013, she made 20 cuts in 22 events, was a season-best finish runner-up at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic and claimed five top-5 finishes.

HSBC Youth Golf Challenge Back

In Singapore, HSBC has been sponsoring the HSBC Youth Golf Challenge (YGC) since 2008.
