CME Group Tour Championship: Jutanugarn edges Thompson in incredible finale

This is what they had in mind when they created the Race to the CME Globe culminating at the CME Group Tour Championship. The whole idea was to end the LPGA season with snap and sizzle and on Sunday everyone got more than they bargained for.

In an ending no one could have predicted – or even imagined – the best players in women’s golf roared across the finish line at Tiburón Golf Club when Ariya Jutanugarn birdied the last hole to win the tournament and Lexi Thompson took home the $1 million bonus for the season-long points race.


Rahm takes Tour Championship as Fleetwood wins Race to Dubai

Jon Rahm carded a closing 67 to win the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, as Tommy Fleetwood claimed the European Tour’s season-long Race to Dubai title ahead of Justin Rose.

Rose had looked on course to claim both the eighth Rolex Series event of the season and the Race to Dubai as he turned in 32 at Jumeirah Golf Estates but three bogeys on a dramatic back nine brought him back to the pack and opened the door for Rahm.


Céline Boutier wins first Ladies European Tour title in Sanya

France’s Céline Boutier won her first Ladies European Tour title by a four-stroke margin at the Sanya Ladies Open in Hainan, China.

With a final round of 68, played in warm and breezy conditions, the 24-year-old Parisienne recorded a 54-hole total of 12-under-par and became the second French rookie to win in a fortnight after Camille Chevalier’s victory at the Hero Women’s Indian Open.


Four way tie for the lead heading into final round of CME Group Tour Championship

Talk about a race. The leaderboard going into Sunday’s final round of the CME Group Tour Championship looks like the start of the Daytona 500 – jammed with contenders. And the Race to the CME Globe $1 million bonus is still very much up for grabs after it looked like Sung Hyun Park would run away with it.

While that new kid on the block – Park, the Rolex Rookie of the Year – got all the attention Thursday and Friday, it was several familiar “old” faces that popped onto the leaderboard in Saturday’s third round along with a fresh new one from that golf hotbed, South Dakota. 


Rookie Boutier leads at Sanya Ladies Open

Rookie Céline Boutier shrugged off back-to-back bogeys to fire a three-under 69 and take a one shot lead into Sunday’s final round of the Sanya Ladies Open at Yalong Bay Golf Club on Hainan Island, China.

The 24-year-old Frenchwoman, who has earned full U.S. LPGA playing rights for 2018  by virtue of two wins on the satellite Symetra Tour this year, was joint leader after round one and cruising to a comfortable lead until she stumbled on 15 and 16, giving the rest of the field hope.


Rose and Fleetwood set up thriller in Dubai

Justin Rose and Tommy Fleetwood produced matching seven under 65s during a sensational third day of the DP World Tour Championship to guarantee a thrilling climax to the Race to Dubai.

Rose has continued his electrifying form, which has seen him win his last two events in China and Turkey, into the final week of the season as he looks to complete an incredible late surge and leapfrog current Number One Fleetwood on the Race to Dubai Rankings.


China's Liu tipped to shine at the Asian Golf Championship

Chinese teenager Liu Yan-wei hopes to shine on home soil at the inaugural Asian Golf Championship which gets underway in Xiamen, Fujian Province, in a fortnight.

The 20-year-old Liu, rated as one of China’s rising stars in the game, has plied his trade on the Asian Tour and the Asian Development Tour (ADT) in the past three years. He showed glimpses of his talent when he registered a first top-10 finish on the Asian Tour in Bangladesh in February. 


Sung Hyun Park opens up 3-stroke lead at CME Group Tour Championship

On Thursday night at the gala Rolex LPGA Awards, Sung Hyun Park claimed the only 2017 honor that’s been decided – the Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year. On Friday, the 24-year-old South Korean took a big step toward securing all the other major titles as she climbed to the top of the leaderboard at the CME Group Tour Championship.

With a second-round 65 at Tiburon Golf Club, Park finished 36 holes at 12-under-par 132, three strokes ahead of Caroline Masson and Sarah Jane Smith and four clear of Nelly Korda, Pernilla Lindberg and Madelene Sagstrom.
