Lexus Cup women's pro match returns to Singapore

Lexus Cup 2008 organisers revealed today that the final event of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) season will be returning to Singapore where the tournament was inaugurated.
Singapore Island Country Club (Bukit) will play host to the fourth edition of this prestigious women’s team event on its renowned Bukit Course, one of only three golf courses designed by legendary James Braid outside the United Kingdom.
From November 28 to 30, 24 of the world’s top professional women golfers will form Team International and Team Asia, pitting their skills against each other over three exciting days of match play golf in foursomes, four-balls and singles for bragging rights by winning the prestigious Lexus Cup.
Team International will be looking to take revenge on a devastating loss in 2007 when they lost by a whopping margin of 9 and 15. Annika Sorenstam will return for the fourth year to captain Team International and aim to avenge the defeat in her final LPGA event of the season.
Team Asia will see the return of sophomore captain Se Ri Pak. The Korean golf icon led her team to a commanding win over Team International last year and this time around, they will hope to do the same in Singapore where they have had success previously.
