England’s Laura Davies is ready to get 2014 off to a perfect start with a win in the Bing Lee Fujitsu General Women’s NSW Open.
Davies has confirmed that she is returning to Oatlands Golf Club in Sydney for the NSW Open being played from 24 to 26 January.
Her goals for 2014 are straightforward, “To win, win and win again.” she said recently from home.
The Englishwoman, who is a crowd favourite wherever she plays around the world, will be looking to capture her second Women's NSW Open, having won the event the first time she played in it in 2008.
Making her sixth straight appearance, why does the winner of more than 80 titles around the world keep returning to the event, “I like the course and more importantly the people at the club always make me feel so welcome. The event is a bit more relaxed than some other events but it always has a strong field so a great one to win.”
When asked about the keys to success at Oatlands, the English legend responded “To do well at Oatlands you need to drive the ball well and of course hole your fair share of putts”.
In further news regarding the tournament, Fujitsu General (Aust) Pty Limited has come on board as the co-title sponsor of the Women’s NSW Open.
Philip Perham, Deputy Managing Director expressed the company’s excitement about being part of women’s professional golf for the first time.
“We’re excited to be joining with Bing Lee, a long and valued partner of Fujitsu, in support of women’s golf here in NSW. Air conditioning and summer go hand in glove and from this perspective the timing of this event couldn’t be better for our company”.
“Fujitsu General has a long history of charitable and sporting sponsorships in Australia, but importantly this sponsorship is our first direct involvement with women’s sport.“
“We’re excited to be onboard and with the opportunities this association presents our brand.”
Further player announcements will be made over coming weeks.
