The Home Stretch

While the PGA Tour is winding down, the LPGA is just beginning their final run to their tour's championship, aka the CME Group Titleholders. For the next six weeks the ladies will be skipping their way across the planet. Just check out this schedule:
  1. Oct 11-14: Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia
    (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
  2. Oct 19-21: LPGA KEB HanaBank Championship
    (Incheon, South Korea)
  3. Oct 25-28: Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship 2012
    (Yang Mei, Taoyuan, Taiwan)
  4. Nov 2-4: Mizuno Classic
    (Shima-shi, Mie, Japan)
  5. Nov 8-11: Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex and Jalisco
    (Guadalajara, Mexico)
  6. Nov 15-18: CME Group Titleholders
    (Naples, FL)
That's quite a romp! Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Mexico, and the US, all in six weeks.

These tournaments will decide most of the awards for the year -- except for Rolex Rookie of the Year, which will likely go to So Yeon Ryu. I love Tony Jesselli's assessment:
This race appears to be over. It would take two Lexi wins and a So Yeon immediate retirement announcement to change this result.
And while Tony says the Rolex Player of the Year will likely go to Stacy Lewis, there is still a possibility that she can be caught -- she only needs to stumble a bit, not retire. ;-) The scoring and money titles are still very much up for grabs though.

Tony has also done a preview of the Sime Darby tournament being played this week, so I won't try to duplicate his excellent work. The tournament will be time-delayed until 9:30 each night starting Thursday, so you may prefer to keep up with the live tournament scoring at the LPGA website.

While the LPGA's final run may not be as hyped as the FedExCup Playoffs, we should see most of the top players over the next five weeks -- especially since there are still 15 spots to be determined for the Titleholders event.

Remember, the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia starts tomorrow.
