The LPGA Tour season ends with the CME Group Tour Championship, played at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla.
There are 72 players in the field, battling it out to determine who wins the season-ending event, as well the Race to the CME Globe. For the first three rounds of the tournament, LPGA fans can watch the tape-delayed coverage on Golf Channel, which broadcasts pretty much any other LPGA event except the US Women’s Open.
However, with the PGA Tour’s The RSM Classic airing live on Golf Channel while the final round of the CME Group Tour Championship unfolds, the LPGA decided several years ago its season should end by being broadcast live on TV. So, the LPGA purchased time on ABC for the final round of the CME Group Tour Championship. The final round airs on Sunday from 1-4 p.m. Eastern live on ABC.
For the first three days, LPGA fans can watch live coverage of the CME Group Tour Champioship on GolfChannel.com and their app from 1-4 p.m. Eastern, with the tape-delayed coverage following live PGA Tour coverage on Golf Channel from 4:30-7:30 p.m.
Heading into the CME Group Tour Championship, the top five players in the Race to the CME Globe can win the season-long points race and the $1 million first-place prize. Ariya Jutanugarn leads the way, but Minjee Lee, Brooke Henderson, Nasa Hataoka and Sung Hyun Park can claim the Race to the CME Globe with a win in Naples.
