HSBC extends sponsorship of LPGA event


HSBC announced Monday that it has extended its agreement as title sponsor of the HSBC Women’s Champions event in Singapore for three more years.

The deal keeps the elite-field event on the LPGA schedule through at least 2015. It’s scheduled to be played Feb. 28-March 3 next year with the purse once again set at $1.4 million.

The limited-field event featured 49 of the top 50 LPGA money winners when it was played at Tanah Merah Country in late February of this year with Angela Stanford winning. Future venues will be announced later.
