Yani Tseng to host AJGA Invitational

Golfweek coverage

LPGA global superstar Yani Tseng, along with the Taiwan-based Swinging Skirts Golf Foundation, will partner with the AJGA from 2014 to 2016 to host the Yani Tseng Invitational in Southern California. 
 
The first edition of the AJGA’s newest Invitational will be held from June 30-July 3, 2014, and will feature 72 of the top female junior golfers from around the world including 18 of the top international players.

“The AJGA is the best organization to bring players together,” Tseng said. “For me to host such a prestigious AJGA Invitational in Southern California, where I played much of my junior golf, makes it really special.”
 
Annual proceeds from the tournament will be used to endow a Yani Tseng Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant, as well as to fund other local charities. The goal of the AJGA’s ACE Grant program is to give top-flight golf opportunities to young golfers regardless of financial resources.
 
“We are excited to partner with Yani Tseng and the Swinging Skirts for this tournament,” said AJGA Executive Director Stephen Hamblin. “Yani is a great role model for young golfers and more tournament opportunities for girls at the highest level are invaluable.” 
 
Since turning professional in 2007, Tseng amassed 26 professional victories by age 24, including major victories at the Kraft Nabisco Championship (2010), the LPGA Championship (2008, 2011) and the Ricoh Women’s British Open (2010, 2011). She was named the LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2008 and earned LPGA Tour Player of the Year honors in 2010 and 2011. Before joining the LPGA Tour, Tseng was the No. 1-ranked amateur golfer in Taiwan from 2004-2006.
 
“With the help of Yani’s immense popularity and the tremendous support of the AJGA, it is our hope to get more young people to take up the sport and truly showcase how global the game has become,” said Johnson Wang, chairman of the Swinging Skirts Golf Foundation.

The Swinging Skirts Golf Foundation is a non-profit organization based out of Taiwan whose members, both male and female, compete in a skirt or kilt on the golf course and help grow the game internationally. In addition to staging the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters (Taiwan Ladies Professional Golf Association and the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Tour co-sanctioned event), the Swinging Skirts Golf Foundation has conducted the “Dream-chasing Cup” throughout northern, central and southern Taiwan to help lay the foundation for Taiwanese junior golfers to make it to the international stage.
