The KLPGA's new season opener will be held in Vietnam this week to avoid cold winter weather here.

The inaugural Hyosung Championship will kick off in Ho Chi Minh City on Friday under the sponsorship deal with Hyosung which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year of its local branch in Vietnam.

The KLPGA had been looking for a new sponsor after Hyundai ended its six-year sponsorship last year.

A total of 102 golfers including 80 KLPGA players, 16 Vietnamese golfers and six invitees will compete in the championship.
