After terminating its sponsorship contract with the LPGA, which it had maintained from 2006 through 2018, Hana Financial Group (HFG) began sponsoring the KLPGA, a domestic golf tour, in 2019.

The championship was held as an eco-friendly golf tournament as part of HFG’s efforts to realize its ESG vision, “Big Step for Tomorrow,” including the featuring of diverse recycled/eco-friendly products and an ESG donation event.

This year’s championship was held without spectators to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Nevertheless, to cement its status as a major Asian tournament supporting the advancement and revitalization of golf in Asia, the event was broadcast live to 20 coastal countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

The championship was graced by many outstanding plays by the female star-studded lineup, including winner (rookie) Gaeun Song and defending champions Narin An, Minjee Lee, Lydia Ko, and Yealimi Noh.
