The LPGA’s season ends this week with the CME Group Titleholders tournament, a limited field event that saw three players from each official LPGA event this year qualify for the event.
There is a certain amount of anti-climax in the event this year, since Stacy Lewis has already clinched the player of the year award and Inbee Park will be the LPGA’s money list champion. That doesn’t mean there is no reason to watch the tournament, though.
There is still a chance to see if Lewis can cap off the year with a fifth win, a number that takes a good year and makes it great. There is a chance to see if Yani Tseng can rally from the disappointment of having no wins since March, even though she won three times on tour before April.
Can another American win on tour this year, joining Jessica Korda, Angela Park, Brittany Lang, Cristie Kerr and Lewis?
See, plenty of nice story lines left on the tour even if Lewis and Park have wrapped up two of the major awards. And remember, you won’t be seeing the LPGA officially again until late February. So take your last look at the best women players in the world this weekend. After all, there is no PGA Tour for the women to compete against this week.
