Top women's players to star as golf returns in South Korea”

The South Korean women's golf tour is starting up again on Thursday with opening of the KLPGA Championship, an event that will be played without fans on the course.

"The priority is the safety of the players, tournament officials and golf fans and (the event) will be broadcast", organizers said in a statement.

Three of the world's high 10 are in motion at Lakewood Country Club, simply exterior of Seoul, with the occasion closed to the general public and quite a few security measures have been put in place to restrict the danger of spreading Covid-19.

Players such as Kim Sei-young, Park Sung-hyun, Lee Bo Mi, Lee Jeong-eun and defending champion Choi Hye-jin are among the 150 players set to compete with a total of KRW 30 billion ($24.5 million) in prize money on offer.

Players are advised to keep two metres apart on the course and minimise physical contact, while touching the pin without gloves is prohibited.

Also tune in to CBC-TV and cbcsports.ca on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET to rewatch golf from the 2016 Rio Olympics on our weekly show Olympic Games Replay. Like many players, she did not know how to react with no gallery and no applause. "But I'm thankful for just even being able to play".

And players have to eat their meals alone to maintain social distancing, with no caddies or family members allowed to sit at the same table in the lounge.

"At lunch all the golfers had to face the same direction while eating" without chatting, said Park Sung-hyun.

The LPGA Tour isn't due to resume until the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational from July 15-18, with the next Ladies European Tour event now the Mediterranean Ladies Open from July 16-19.

The men's PGA Tour, which came to a juddering halt when the Players Championship was abandoned after the first round in March, has pencilled in a restart behind closed doors at the Charles Schwab Challenge beginning 11 June at Fort Worth, Texas.
