This is an unofficial, 36-hole event in Brazil that highlights some of the best players on tour. Last year, Catriona Matthew shot a pair of 69s and won the tournament by five strokes over Kristy McPherson. Both players are in the field starting Saturday. The 2009 event featured 15 players with a $500,000 purse, but this year`s championship will have 27 golfers and a $700,000 purse. Rio de Janeiro is the host city of the 2016 Olympics and that year, golf will make its debut. There is no television coverage of this unofficial event. In two weeks, it`s the LPGA State Farm Classic in Springfield, Illinois. In- Kyung Kim walked off with the title last year when she beat Se Ri Pak by a stroke.
