The Wemix Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Championship winner will be awarded in Wemix’s cryptocurrency. The tournament will have two competitions where players compete for individual holes (match play) or compete with others over a full round (stroke play).
The top 12 golfers in the Wemix rankings will face the bottom 12 in the match-play format. The 12 winners and losers will separate into Final A and Final B pools that will vie for the cryptocurrency prize through a stroke play contest.
