Golf Starz Take on the LPGA CME Group Tour Championship
Welcome back! Sorry we took a couple weeks’ sabbatical. You know that feeling when you are flipping channels and you come across a movie that you are familiar with but it is mid was through? Well that is how I feel about the LPGA tour. I am familiar with it, having watched golf most of my adult life. But, I am really coming in mid-way through so as a novice I/we are still learning. So rather than try and B.S. my way through a recap and how we arrived at the season ending tournament, I would rather highlight some things I have learned while watching and learning more about the LPGA.
A couple things of note – I see a lot of similarities between the LPGA and PGA when looking at the field… young players on the rise, most of them using social media to chronicle their journey. The golf is great, but honestly, the coverage on TV and in media is sparse which makes it hard to watch unless you are at the tournament. Lastly, there is a lot of talent but everyone is still battling to be the number one. To be the woman week in and week out that everyone is gunning for and it’s exciting to see where that takes the LPGA.
Now onto this week. The final tournament of the season. The weekend that will decide the season long champion…for all the marbles. It’s simple, win. Win a bunch of money and win the Race to CME Globe. I really don’t think much more needs to be said to get you excited. Will the American Lexi Thompson remain on tip…will the rookie Park capture the title to cap off an amazing year…will Feng keep riding the wave…or will someone from lower on the rankings make a push and surprise the field? The Tiburon Golf Club is a picturesque setting for the weekend – see a hole by hole description of the course here.
See the leader board here.
I am excited for this week. Also, we were beyond excited to hear that Lexi Thompson’s mom received a clean bill of health and from reports will be in Naples watching her daughter tee it up. We wish her continued good health. Great news!
As always, our picks are below… we are glad you have joined us on our adventure following the LPGA. We plan on continuing this coverage starting next season, that way we can see the previews through the end credits.
- Lexi Thompson
- Brooke Henderson
