About The Queens presented by Kowa
The Queens presented by Kowa is a three-day match play tournament contested between four teams of nine players representing the Australian Ladies Professional Golf (ALPG), Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA), Ladies European Tour (LET) and the Ladies’ Professional Golfers’ Association of Japan (JLPGA). The event was launched in 2015, when the JLPGA team, captained by Momoko Ueda, led from start to finish to win over the KLPGA. The LET team, led by Laura Davies, finished third with the ALPG in fourth. In 2016, the format was changed so that the first and second placed teams going into the final day played each other for the trophy, with the third and fourth placed teams playing-off for third place. Captain Jiyai Shin led the KLPGA team to a decisive victory over the JLPGA, while the LET team, led by Trish Johnson, defeated the ALPG side.
