    Swinging Skirts skins event will give a boost to local charity (2011/12/07)

    The skins event that precedes the Swinging Skirts Invitational tournament kicks off tomorrow morning. Four of the world’s best female golfers, led by Taiwan’s Yani Tseng, will compete against one other for US$100,000 in prize money, half of which they’ll donate to charity.

    The 18-hole skins event that will precede the Swinging Skirts Invitational tournament will be a rare showdown between champions.

    The four contestants are winners of major tournaments. Taiwan’s Yani Tseng won this year’s LPGA Championship and Women’s British Open. As the current world number one, she is expected to do well. However, the strength of her opponents cannot be overlooked. World number 10 Stacy Lewis from the U.S. won this year’s Kraft Nabisco Championship, where she came from behind to beat Tseng to take her first career major.

    The third contestant is the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open winner So Yeon Ryu of South Korea. The 21-year-old once beat Tseng at the Asian Games in Doha. She took the gold medal with an amazing finishing score of 29 under par. The fourth contestant will be last year’s U.S. Open winner Paula Creamer, making it two Americans in the event.

    Creamer’s nickname is the Pink Panther because of her trademark all-pink outfits.

    The four will take part in a skins event. Each hole is a small competition with its own prize money. When two players have the equal lowest score, the prize money then jackpots to the next hole. In addition, the prize money starts at US$1,000 per hole and then rises throughout the round to get as high as US$20,000 on the 18th. All four players have agreed that half of the US$100,000 total prize money will go to a charity in Taiwan.
