“To see Steph and Karis both earn their LPGA Tour cards was a very exciting moment for Australian golf and we are thrilled that they will now be part of the inaugural Australian WPGA Championship,” said WPGA Tour of Australasia CEO Karen Lunn.

“There is a wonderful group of girls now making their way in the professional ranks and I know golf fans will enjoy seeing them in action in Brisbane in January.”

“Starting a new tournament is always dependent on the support of the players and with Steph and Karis now confirmed the WPGA Championship is off to a very bright start.”

Amongst those already confirmed to play is 2019 Women’s PGA Championship winner, Hannah Green. The Western Australian became the first Australian women to win a major since Karrie Webb at the 2006 Kraft Nabisco Championship.
