LPGA announces changes to Race to CME Globe finale at Tour Championship


The LPGA is changing the points reset ahead of the CME Group Tour Championship to give more players an opportunity to win the season-long Race to the CME Globe and its $1 million prize.

In 2017, the points reset will give the top five players heading to the season finale in Naples, Fla., a chance to win the top prize if they win the CME Group Tour Championship. That's an increase from the top three that previously had a chance.

In addition, the top 12 players in the points standings heading into the finale will have a mathematical chance of winning the Race to the CME Globe. Previously, the top nine had a chance of winning.

The 2017 season will mark the fourth for the Race to the CME Globe concept, with Lydia Ko winning each of the first two years (2014, '15), while Ariya Jutanugarn won in 2016.
