"We are delighted to have such a strong player field in what will be the final year of operating the Tournament of Champions in Bali. We look forward to welcoming them and I know that everyone in Bali is looking forward to an exciting event," said Kevin Livesey, tournament director of the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions.

Arguably the most popular tournament on the WBA tour, this Bali stop has been a fixture since it was first held on the island in 2001. The 2011 tournament, however, will be the final time the event is hosted in Bali. A lack of financial support from a major sponsor will see Bali replaced by Sofia, Bulgaria.
