On behalf of the Swinging Skirts Golf Foundation, I would like to welcome you all to participate in this magnificent golf event. The LPGA Taiwan Championship is not only a tournament; it also represents our expectations for the sport of golf. These expectations are powerful enough for a little bird to fly across the ocean and reach the field of dreams on the other shore. We wish to converge all passion, yearning and cheering from everyone on this island in this tournament; therefore, Swinging Skirts will make an all-out effort, and we will show that this tournament is here to stay.
The LPGA Tour is the dream of all professional female golf players, and we hope this tournament can provide a chance for our young players to watch and learn from the skills and mental ability of these top-notch players, to provide stimulation and a driving force on their way to maturity, and also kick-start the development of amateur golf in Taiwan.
Last but not least, I would like to extend my gratitude to the city of Taoyuan for its support. With the tournament venue moving to Taoyuan; all planning including facilities, transportation, and logistics need to start from scratch. With strong support from the Taoyuan City Government, preparation for the tournament has been accomplished as scheduled and is being presented as perfect as it can be.
This tournament belongs to every one of us. I call out to you all to transform your passion into action, by coming and supporting our local players and support golf in Taiwan.
