It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship. This year’s Championship will take place over four days, from October 12 to 15, at the Sky 72 Golf Club’s splendid Ocean Course. There, the world’s top-ranked female golfers will compete for a total purse of US$ 2 million.
As the only LPGA Tour event in Korea, the KEB Hana Bank Championship is the pride and joy of the nation’s golfing community and my sincere thanks goes to the many golf fans that have long supported this Championship, as well as to all the participating golfers who will marshal their full talents and abilities to perform at their peak. I have no doubt that this years’ tournament will feature outstanding competition and spectacular play from all golfers, as is the case each year at this event.
Since it was founded two years ago, KEB Hana Bank has grown tremendously and, thanks to all those who showed support for us during this period, we have successfully entered into 24 countries – more than any other Korean bank. Having accomplished this significant goal we now seek to become the top global bank and reward all of our loyal customers.
I would like to ask for your interest in and support for Hana Financial Group and KEB Hana Bank, as we dedicate our efforts to move beyond being Korea’s No.1 bank and become a leading global bank. To this end, I ask for your generous support to ensure that this year’s event is successful.
As the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship is asserting its position as not only the only LPGA tournament held in Korea but one of the world’s leading golf tournaments, KEB Hana Bank is also doing its utmost to become an exceptional bank on the global stage.
In closing, I would like to express my gratitude to all the affiliated companies and sponsors for their support and cooperation toward ensuring a successful event. Thank you so much!
