Yang Taoli to tee up against men at Luxehills

  Yang Taoli, the first woman to make the cut on the Omega China Tour, is once again set to compete against the country’s top male players in the upcoming Luxehills Golf Championship, the first professional golf tournament to be held in her native Sichuan province.

  The RMB800,000 event will be held from September 4-7 at the Luxehills International Country Club in Chengdu and effectively tee off the latter part of this year’s Omega China Tour following a three-month break for the Olympics.

  The presence of one of the country’s most ambitious female golfers, who recently competed in the US$3.1 million Evian Masters in France, is set to increase local interest in the Luxehills tournament, which was postponed from its original June dates due to the Sichuan Earthquake on May 12.

  “My home town, Dujiangyan, is not far from Chengdu, so it’s only about two hours by bus to Luxehills. All my family will come to see me and I have many golf friends in Chengdu who will also come as they’ll all want to watch the tournament,” she said.

  “I’ve never played a tournament in Chengdu, so it will be my first competition in the city,” added Yang, who took up the game as a 17-year-old while working at the Sichuan Qingcheng Golf Club near her family’s home.

  Yang made headlines around the golfing world in May when, three days after the earthquake struck her home province, she became the first female pro and second woman to compete on the Omega China Tour since its inauguration in 2005.
