This Lexus Cup should be an interesting event as it is captained by Annika Sorenstam and Grace Parks. The Lexus Cup will be held in Sinapore it is headed by Grace Parks for the Asian team and Annika with the International team. They each can pick two players as their Captains choice and when these two Captains were announced back in October they were not sure who they would pick as there were many good players to choose.
Each team will consist of 12 players and each team will have four players from the ADT Money List and four players from the Asian and International events from the Rolex Womenís golf rankings. There can also be two sponsorís exceptions as Toyota Asian Distributors are the sponsor.
The prize money is $960,000 with $50,000 going to each member of the winning team with $30,000 going to the other team. The type of play will be a foursome Best Ball on the first day. Second day is a fourball matches and the last day single matches with points awarded for each match event.
The International team won last year 16-8 and Annika remembers the special bond and team spirit that her team had during some intense competition. She is sure the Asian team will be a stronger team this year as there are many great Asian players. Grace remembers the true meaning of sportsmanship between both teams. She expects her team to be confident and be ready to compete and represent Asia in significant style.
