If you are a golf fan, you already know that race to the CME Globe is one of the most interesting parts of the e LPGA. It is one of the most interesting, not the most interesting. You also know that Lydia Ko’s final round at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship is responsible for her tie for 6 in Arkansas. Also, it gave her advantage into the majors. But this achievement also gave her additional points in the Race to the CME Globe.
Inbee Park has 437 points (100 less than the No. 1). This is an impressive result for this young golfer. The situation will be even more interesting if we know that there are two majors more in the rest of the season. The first place will provide 500 points, usually. But in the case of a major, it provides an additional 25%. 625 points will be awarded to the winner of the U.S. Women’s Open at Lancaster Country Club (July 9-12). Also, the winner of the Ricoh Women’s British Open (from July 30 to August 2) will receive 625 points.
In total, 16 tournaments have been finished in the Race to the CME Globe. You should know that this is the second season. The best three seeds entering to the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples (November) will win it all. The best 9 have a chance to season-long title.
The Race to the CME Globe, a competition that awards LPGA golfers with points during the whole season is more interesting than ever. The winner will become the “Race to the CME Globe Champion.” We will see who will be the winner.
