Four of the LPGA’s top players chose to “Say It With Flowers” at the launch of the fifth annual HSBC Women’s Champions at Singapore Botanic Gardens on Tuesday. Rolex Rankings No. 1 Yani Tseng, fresh off her Honda LPGA Thailand 2012 victory, was joined by Suzann Pettersen, Michelle Wie and defending HSBC champ Karrie Webb in completing a world map with orchids and ribbon. The quartet then exchanged Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim orchid, with each other to symbolize the way the HSBC event brings the best talent from all over the world to compete in the Lion City. HSBC Singapore CEO Alex Hungate, HSBC Group Head of Sponsorship Giles Morgan and LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan also took part in the press conference.
