Seventy of the world’s top women golfers will tee off in the Honda LPGA Thailand 2021 at the Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course as scheduled on May 6-9, organisers confirmed on Friday.

This year’s tournament is being held behind closed doors in line with Covid restrictions but will be broadcast live on all four days.

Thai sisters Moriya and Ariya Jutanugarn will take on a strong field of US, European and Asian stars led by South Korea’s Amy Yang, winner of the 2019 edition here, and compatriot and world No 1 Ko Jin-young.

Joining them will be teen sensation Chanettee Wannasaen, 16, who won the qualifying event.

The tournament will be held in Covid-safe conditions with all participants quarantined, helping to promote Thailand as a safe destination as it prepares to welcome back international tourists.

"Even though we are in a different situation from previous years, the Honda LPGA Thailand still plays an important role in raising the standards of the country’s golf tournaments as well as inspiring the young Thai golfers and all those who have a passion for and an interest in golf,” said Noriyuki Takakura, president and CEO of Honda Automobile (Thailand).
