Malaysia to host Women's World Cup of Golf

Malaysia will host the Women's World Cup Golf tournament from Nov 27-Dec 3.

Ty Votaw, commissioner of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), said the event would be held at the Mines resort in Kuala Lumpur.

Votaw said a rival Ladies World Cup of Golf scheduled to be held in Ireland in September has not endorsed by the LPGA.

He said the LPGA held the rights to the women's World Cup following an agreement with the International Golf Association.

"While the LPGA is aware that the Ladies European Tour has announced a Ladies World Cup of Golf event in Ireland in September, the LPGA will not be sanctioning that event,'' Votaw said.

He said his association was "fully committed'' to the Malaysian event.

Organisers said England's Laura Davis, a former women's world champion and winner of 60 international titles would play in Kuala Lumpur.

Australia's Karrie Webb, the current champion, has also confirmed her participation
