The 2018 International Crown was a women's golf team event organized by the LPGA, played 4-7 Oct at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon, South Korea.[1] This was the third International Crown, a biennial match play event contested between teams of four players representing eight countries.

Due to the anticipated arrival of Typhoon Kong-rey, the tournament schedule was adjusted; the second round tee times were moved earlier on Friday and the third round, originally scheduled for Saturday, was started on Friday afternoon. The final round was to be played Saturday, 6 October, instead of Sunday.[2][3] However, typhoon rains arrived earlier than expected so that no matches were played Saturday; the third round was finished Sunday, followed by the singles matches.[4]

Format

The first three rounds featured round-robin pool play matches at fourball. Each match was worth two points for a win and one point for a halve. Following the completion of pool play, the top two teams in each pool and one wild card team advanced to singles play.

These five remaining teams were re-seeded based on points earned in pool play. The players then competed in singles play on Sunday, with the four members of one team each paired up with a member of a different one of the other four teams. The total points earned in pool and singles play determined the team champion.[5]

Teams

On 3 June 2018, eight teams qualified to participate in this event, based on the combined world rankings of the top four players from each country: South Korea, United States, Japan, England, Australia, Thailand, Sweden, and Chinese Taipei.[6] The field was the same as 2016 with the exception of Sweden replacing China. The team members were finalized on 2 July 2018, and the teams were divided into two pools.[7][8]
