The Aramco Team Series has announced that world No. 1 Lydia Ko will compete in the Ladies European Tour event in Singapore.

Laguna National Golf Resort Club will welcome the Kiwi as the youngest player to be ranked No. 1 in golf, as she reached the top of golf’s standings in 2017 — at just 17-years-old. She returned to the top of the pile in December eclipsing Nelly Korda as the No 1 player in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. This is the third time Ko, who notched three LPGA Tour victories and nine other top-five finishes in 2022, has been the best in the world.

Ko will appear in her first ever Aramco Team Series event at Laguna National Golf Resort Club. “I am really looking forward to playing my first Aramco Team Series event in Singapore after hearing such good things from players on both the LPGA and LET, said the 25-year-old.

“From the outside it seems like a really fun week to be a part of with both the team and individual elements to play for and the set up both on and off the golf course being outstanding.

“I am looking forward to teeing it up at Laguna National in March and being a part of a golf tournament that offers something completely different to the norm.”

Noah Ali Reza, newly appointed CEO of Golf Saudi is thrilled by the return of the Aramco Team Series and excited to be taking the tournament to a completely new venue.

He said: “The Aramco Team Series events have gone from strength to strength since their inception and provide an exceptional experience both on and off the golf course for the best female golfers in the world.

“It is exciting to be heading to a new venue in Laguna National Golf Resort Club, it looks an incredible venue, definitely befitting of an Aramco Team Series event and I hope that players and supporters alike have a great week.”
