Rebecca Artis and Sarah Kemp will form the Australian team in the World Ladies Championship at Mission Hills Resort Dongguan in China which starts tomorrow.
The format is 72 holes of stroke play, with a unique three-in-one concept, including a team event for combined scores and an amateur competition.
Individual players compete for the US$700,000 prize fund. In addition the top world-ranked two players from each country as of 1st January will compete for the team prize fund of US$100,000.
Kemp and Artis are both are looking forward to a rare opportunity to represent Australia in the team competition.
Kemp was a part of the ALPG team at The Queen’s Cup in Japan last December and is looking forward to another opportunity to represent her country.
“There aren’t many times we get to play in team events for your country so when it happens it’s definitely exciting and I’m really pumped,” she commented.
For Artis, this is her first time representing Australia as a professional and she is looking forward to the opportunity. She said: “It’s always an honour to represent your country and to do so in a team event with a good mate in Kempy should be a lot of fun!”
The other Australian in the field is Victorian Stacey Keating who has just come off a fantastic ALPG season in which she won two events and also the 2016 ALPG Club Car Series.
