Almost the End of the LPGA Season

Well, the 2015 LPGA season is nearly over. There are only two more events on the schedule, and after five weeks of overseas tournaments they're both during daylight hours here in the USA.

This week it's the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, with its extremely limited field of only 36 players. You may recall that defending champion Christina Kim got her first win in nine years there.

As usual, Tony Jesselli has a preview post of the event at this link. He can get you up to speed on the pertinent details of the event. I just want to make sure you understand what's at stake this week.

Of the top 3 players in the Rolex Ranking, only Inbee Park is playing this week and even if Inbee wins, Lydia Ko will remain #1 in the world... but I'm not sure if she would keep her lead over Inbee in the Race to the CME Globe, Vare Trophy, Rolex Player of the Year and Money List standings. Nevertheless, you can be sure Inbee wants to grab at least some of them! Stacy Lewis took the first three and Lydia the money list last year.

However, it's not going to be completely smooth sailing for Inbee this week because Sei Young Kim is also in the field. Kim locked up the Rookie of the Year Award last week and a win at Lorena's event would put her into the Top3 of the Race to the CME Globe... which would mean she could take that prize if she wins the Tour Championship next week.

This is a critical week for Inbee, what with three other players potentially able to take all the year-end prizes... and Inbee hasn't played well on the Bermuda greens at the Tour Championship. She needs a win this week to give her the best possible starting position for the final event.

GC's coverage of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational begins today at 4pm ET.
