WORLD'S GREATEST IN SOUTH KOREA.

World's greatest in South Korea. LPGA International Busan.

BMW LADIES CHAMPIONSHIP.

World-class tournament in South Korea.

The BMW Ladies Championship has been bringing something extra to the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour calendar since the 2019 season. The best golfers in the world battle for prize money of two million US dollars in Busan, South Korea. The BMW Ladies Championship is the only LPGA tournament in South Korea, a highlight on the international BMW Golfsport calendar that features a superb field. More than 70,000 enthusiastic spectators were in attendance at the first edition in November 2019.

 

After the acclaimed premiere and the cancellation of the 2020 event due to the pandemic, the BMW Ladies Championship 2021 was one of very few tournaments in Asia to return to the LPGA Tour calendar. It took place from 21st to 24th October 2021. No spectators were permitted this year, but the elite of ladies’ golf was delighted to be back for a unique tournament week at the LPGA International Busan. In addition to the prize money, there were two spectacular BMW Hole-in-One Awards on offer. The first hole-in-one at the 13th and 16th holes would have been rewarded with a fully-electric BMW iX or a BMW 7 Series – but no cars changed hands this year, despite the players’ best efforts.

BMW Ladies Championship Winner

JIN YOUNG KO

2021 BMW Ladies Championship winner.

Coming into the final round, Jin Young Ko was four strokes behind leader Hee Jeong Lim, but a great final round of eight under par (64) put the 26-year-old into a play-off at her home event in South Korea. A birdie on the first extra hole saw Ko claim her second consecutive victory on the LPGA Tour. “I thought, going into the fourth round, that if I give it my best shot, that I would have a shot at winning,” explained the delighted winner.  

Ko had already chalked up six birdies in the first nine holes to move into a strong position. Two more birdies on the back nine pushed her into the play-off with Hee Jeong Lim, and she was able to hold her nerve. The tournament victory not only provided her with a winner’s cheque for 300,000 US dollars, but also put her in first place in the ladies’ golf world rankings. Ko could hardly have hoped for a better way to round off her home visit.

2021 Highlights.

Although the Coronavirus pandemic meant that no spectators were permitted at the second edition of the BMW Ladies Championship, the tournament generated some magnificent golfing images to rival those from the 2019 premiere, the main reason being the beautiful location of the LPGA International Busan. Designed by Perry O. Dye and Rees Jones, the course enjoys a captivating location and boasts a challenging and diverse layout. There could hardly be any more ideal conditions for world-class golf.
