SINGAPORE -- The LPGA Tour's best from Asia will battle an international squad made up of mostly Americans in the Lexus Cup.
 
The Internationals won the Ryder Cup-style event last year by a 16-8 margin. Annika Sorenstam will again captain the International team.
 
She will be joined by Paraguay's Julieta Granada, Australian Nikki Campbell, England's Laura Davies and Sweden's Carin Koch as well as Americans Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis, Brittany Lincicome, Sherri Steinhauer, Stacy Prammanasudh, Angela Stanford and Morgan Pressel.
 
Grace Park again will lead the Asian team. She is joined on this year's squad by Filipino Jennifer Rosales, Japan's Sakura Yokomine and Taiwan's Candie Kung as well as fellow South Koreans Se Ri Pak, Hee-Won Han, Seon Hwa Lee, Jee Young Lee, Meena Lee, Shi Hyun Ahn, Joo Mi Kim and Young Kim.
 
The teams were chosen as follows: The top four players from the ADT Money List, top four players from the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings, two captain's picks and two sponsor's exemptions.
 
The format will have six foursomes matches Friday, six fourball matches Saturday and 12 singles matches Sunday.
 
The LPGA will return the weekend of January 19-21 with the Women's World Cup of Golf, where Sweden won last year. The first individual stroke-play event will be the SBS Open at Turtle Bay from February 15-17.
