Some see golf as a business tool while others define it as a sport. While there has always been female participation in golf, more outstanding female players have emerged only in recent years.

Apart from having beautiful golf courses, Singapore has also hosted many women’s golf competitions. As the status of women in this sport becomes more prominent, the artist hopes to paint characters that show confidence and wisdom of women through golf.
