DUBAI: Nine of the world’s top amateur and college players, led by the world’s top ranked amateur, Lydia Ko, Georgia Hall of England, and Alison Lee of Valencia, California, will participate in the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Doris Chen, Lindy Duncan, Camilla Hedberg, Isabelle Lendl, Stephanie Meadow and Ashlan Ramsey will also join Ko, Hall and Lee in the field as they compete in this year’s tournament, taking place from April 1-7, at Mission Hills Golf Club.

“Providing the future stars of women’s golf the chance to play alongside their professional heroes in the first major championship of the year has always been a point of pride for the Kraft Nabisco Championship,” said David Blake-Thomas, Executive Director and Chairman, Kraft Nabisco Championship.

“We are proud to be able to provide these great young players from around the world with this important step in their careers, and look forward to joining golf fans in cheering them on.”

Lydia Ko of New Zealand enjoyed a record-setting 2012 season, winning two events that not only established marks for the youngest person to win professional golf tournaments, but also earned her the top women’s amateur ranking in the world. In January of 2012, Ko won the Bing Lee-Samsung Women’s NSW Open on the ALPG Tour.
