After 30 events played all over the globe the LPGA Tour heads to Naples, Florida, to play the season finale. The Tiburón Golf Club will host the CME Group Tour Championship for the third time and will welcome the 71 best female golfers of the 2015 season.
The top 9 players in the Race to the CME Globe will have a real chance of taking the $1 million bonus price. While the top three (Lydia Ko, Inbee Park and Stacy Lewis) can clinch the full price if they win this week in Naples.
During the 2014 Lydia Ko forced a playoff at 10-under against Carlota Ciganda and Julieta Granada. The winner of the event was decided in a three-way sudden-death playoff after playing the 18th hole for the fourth time. Ko tapped in for par to defeat co-runner-up Ciganda; Julieta Granada was eliminated on the second extra hole.
The season ending event will be played at the Gold Course of the Tiburón Golf Club designed by golf legend Greg Norman. The course opened 17 years ago in 1998 and is designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International.
