Lydia Ko Wins CME Group Tour Championship


Lydia Ko made birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to clinch a two-shot victory over Leona Maguire at the CME Group Tour Championship. Ko finished the tournament at 17-under, and the win earned her a $2 million cheque, the largest prize in women’s sports.

Ko finishes the 2022 with three wins for the season, and 19 wins for her career. This is also Ko’s second CME Group title, the first coming in 2014. She also captures the Rolex Player of the Year award, and the Vare Trophy (for lowest scoring average).

In the LPGA Golf Pool, Gary Young had the most points for the week with 41.

The CME Group Tour Championship is the finish of the LPGA season, and that means it is also the finish of the LPGA Golf Pool. Congratulations to Andrew Corner who took the lead early on and then just kept expanding it, winning by 92 points over Kevin Chin.

There will be prizes for the top-5, plus one other prize to a randomly selected entrant. There will be another post annoucing the winners.

Thanks to everyone who took part. I hope everyone followed the LPGA just a little more closely.
