For the very first time, live music will feature as part of a new, enhanced fan experience that aims to attract new and diverse audiences to the Championship to enjoy women’s golf at the very highest level. BRIT Award winner Goulding will entertain fans on Saturday 12 August following the close of play.
Ellie Goulding said: “I’m honoured to be the first music artist to perform at the AIG Women’s Open. The elevation of women’s sport is something I’m a huge champion of, so I can’t wait to be surrounded by inspiring women in August. I’m looking forward to seeing you all there!”
Martin Slumbers, CEO of The R&A said: “We and our valued partners in AIG have been clear that our ambition is to elevate the AIG Women’s Open as a world-class sporting event.
