HSBC extends title sponsorship of flagship golf event

Banking group HSBC has extended a title sponsorship deal for the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s Women’s World Championship.

The renewal will run for two editions, covering the 2019 and 2020 tournaments, with next year’s event taking place at the New Tanjong Course at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore in March.

For its 11th edition earlier this year, the tournament was renamed the HSBC Women’s World Championship after 10 years as the HSBC Women’s Champions. 

Jean Ng, director of sports at the Singapore Tourism Board, said: “We’re pleased to see the HSBC Women’s World Championship remain in Singapore and look forward to further growing the ancillary programming around the tournament to engage more fans and visitors alike.”
