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.


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.


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. 


LPGA Celebrates Season’s Best at 2017 Rolex LPGA Awards

In awards voted on by LPGA Tour players, Katherine Kirk is the recipient of the 2017 William and Mousie Powell Award and Tiffany Joh is the recipient of the 2017 Heather Farr Perseverance Award.

Three-time LPGA Tour winner Kirk received the William and Mousie Powell Award, given annually to an LPGA member, who in the opinion of her playing peers, by her behavior and deeds, best exemplifies the spirits, ideals and values of the LPGA.


Boutier and Meechai share first-round lead in Sanya

Rookie professional Celine Boutier of France and Wichanee Meechai of Thailand fired five-under-par 67s to share the first-round lead in the Sanya Ladies Open at Yalong Bay Golf Club in Hainan, China.

They hold a one stroke lead over nine other players: Marianne Skarpnord, Prima Thammaraks, Valdis Thora Jonsdottir, Yan-Hong Pan, Kristen Farmer, Lee-Anne Pace, Solar Lee and Marta Sanz Barrio.


‘Queen of Hainan’ looking for hat-trick

Lee-Anne Pace is known as the ‘Queen of Hainan’ by the Chinese media after three wins on the tropical island, at the 2010 and 2013 Sanya Ladies Open, as well as at the Blue Bay LPGA in 2014.

This weekend presents a third opportunity for Pace to lift the Sanya Ladies Open trophy at Yalong Bay Golf Club, which is hosting the championship for the eighth time. Speaking ahead of the three-day tournament, which starts on Friday, she said: “It’s always nice to be back in a place where you’ve won before and I really like the golf course. It’s fun to play, so it will be an exciting week. It’s almost like being on holiday here and at the same time, you play golf and make a living.”


Camille Chevalier remains focused on first trip to China

Last week’s Hero Women’s Indian Open champion Camille Chevalier has received hundreds of messages from well-wishers following her maiden win at DLF Golf and Country Club on Sunday, but she doesn’t plan to read them until she returns home to France.

The 23-year-old LET rookie from Aix-en-Provence is determined to stay fit and focused throughout the Sanya Ladies Open, which gets underway at Yalong Bay Golf Club in Sanya, Hainan Island, from Friday.


Shanshan Feng moves to No. 1 in Women’s World Golf Rankings

In a historic first for professional golf, Shanshan Feng, of the People’s Republic of China, has reached No. 1 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. She becomes the first player from China, male or female, to sit at the top of the golf rankings.

"It's the longest day in my life to wait for the update of the world ranking,” said Feng after winning the Blue Bay LPGA on Saturday on Hainan Island, China. “When I finally see the Chinese flag on top of the ranking, I feel all the efforts over the past 18 years on golf is worth it. I really enjoy the moment and hopefully this could encourage a younger generation in China to go for this sport."
