The LPGA Season Finale

Unlike last week's Charles Schwab Cup point reshuffle on the Champions Tour, the LPGA's Race to the CME Globe point reshuffle isn't really that controversial. No player has been so dominant on the LPGA this season that they should be viewed as a clear-cut favorite.

That doesn't mean that the CME Group Tour Championship won't be a wild ride however.

CME Group Tour Championship defending champ Charley Hull and caddie

As usual, Tony Jesselli has a preview of the event over at his site. I'll simply mention that the event returns to the Tiburón Golf Club in Naples FL and that Charley Hull is the defending champion.

The storylines are many and varied this week. Again, rather than try to summarize them all, let me give you some links to articles:
One thing that becomes very obvious as you read these things is that the final list of this season's winners will be much different than last year's. In Gee Chun could win the Vare Trophy again, but otherwise we're definitely in for a change. The analysts can argue whether that's good for women's golf or not, but I think it makes for a more interesting finale.

The one thing that disappoints me is GC's decision to tape-delay the first three rounds of the event. Only the Sunday finish on ABC will be shown live. GC's tape-delay coverage begins Thursday at 4:30pm ET (same for Friday and Saturday). ABC's live coverage begins Sunday at 1pm ET.

Still, if this event lives up to the rest of the season, the CME Group Tour Championship looks to be a can't-miss spectacle.
