Twofer Tuesday: CME Group Tour Championship

Since the Limerick Summary is delayed a day, Twofer Tuesday picks up the slack. But rather than go to the RSM Classic -- at this point (Sunday night) most of the event info I want isn't posted yet -- I'm headed for the final LPGA event of 2019.

Defending champion Lexi Thompson

As usual, the CME Group Tour Championship will be played in (hopefully) sunny Naples FL at the Tiburón Golf Club. Lexi Thompson is the defending champion and, after a less than stellar season, will be looking to duplicate last year's magic. She came into that event in a very similar situation... and crushed it.

But I digress. Let's make a couple of picks!
  • My Top10er for the event is Nelly Korda. She's already won twice this season and is coming off one of those wins, at the Swinging Skirts event in Taiwan. I see no reason that she should slack off now, what with only one event to go and that one for a monster paycheck. I won't be surprised if she pulls off a win.
  • But having said that, my winner is -- who else? -- Jin Young Ko. Three LPGA wins (two majors) plus a KLPGA win this season mark her as the one to beat. Granted, her WD from the Swinging Skirts event is a bit worrisome but she's had nearly three weeks to recover. She's been so smart about her game this year that I'm sure she stopped before the injury became too bad.
Ironically, GC is using tape delay for the first three rounds of this event, with NBC broadcasting live next Sunday. GC's tape delay begins Thursday at 4pm ET. Nevertheless, I can't wait to see how this wild LPGA season finishes up!
