Among the countries that participated in all three, the United States recorded 15 wins, 11 losses and 2 draws in 28 matches. Four-ball was 11 wins, 8 losses and 1 draw, and the single match had a high win rate with 4 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw. Japan and Thailand also competed three times each, but each recorded 10 wins, 13 losses and 5 draws out of 28 matches. Australia had 7 wins, 10 losses and 3 draws in 20 matches, and Chinese Taipei had 7 wins, 16 losses and 1 draw in 24 matches in 3 appearances.

The tournament, which started in 2014, became the first champion in the first year when Spain unexpectedly won all four matches in single match play in the final round. In Korea, Park In-bi, Ryu So-yeon, Kim In-kyung, and Choi Na-yeon, who were considered the strongest powers of the year, came in, but finished in a tie for third place.

In 2016, Ryu So-yeon, Yang Hee-young, Kim Se-young, and Jeon In-ji competed, and after a fierce battle between Korea and the United States at the end, the United States won with 13 points, and Korea was second. In the 2018 tournament held at Jack Nicklaus Korea in Songdo, Incheon, South Korea, Park Seong-hyun, Kim In-kyung, Ryu So-yeon, and Jeon In-ji teamed up to win the championship, defeating the United States this time.

In this year’s competition, held for the first time in five years, the method is slightly different. In the three-day group stage, the top two teams are selected in a four-ball method. However, starting from the semi-final tournament, 2 single match play matches and 1 foursome match (two players alternating one ball) will be played. The foursome, which is slightly more advantageous when the two players have similar styles, is played first.

Korea, which received the second seed in the national seed, will have Ko Jin-young, Kim Hyo-joo, Jeon In-ji, and Choi Hye-jin as the original team. In the group stage, they face Japan, Thailand and Australia. And on the weekend, the top two teams from USA, Sweden, England and China will face off. Breathing in the first ‘foursome’ method has become more important than anything else.
