04:57 AM February 11, 2019

The first staging of the $100,000-The Country Club Ladies Invitational, which will be bannered by 2017 US Open champion Sung Hyun-park of South Korea, happens March 6 and is expected to provide one of the toughest tests in the Philippine Golf Tour and Taiwan LPGA circuits this season.

The wind-swept layout in Santa Rosa in Laguna has been one of the most difficult courses to conquer in the country since it was redone a couple of years back to fit international standards.

Park is currently ranked second in the world and will be playing in the 54-hole tournament as part of her commitment to new sponsor Solaire Resorts and Casinos before she enters the third year of her lucrative US LPGA campaign.

There will be a banner field of 120 players made up mostly of foreigners, with Princess Superal carrying the fight for the lean local contingent.
