This is the final event of the season, and it's for all the marbles. In addition to the $1 million CME Globe Champion bonus, the Player of the Year, the Vare trophy (scoring average), and the money title are on the line.

For starters, the coverage sucks. Seriously. Two hours of tape delayed coverage for 3 days, and then 3 hours on Sunday? Pathetic for the season ending tour championship.

The CME points have been reset. The top 5 players can win the bonus with a victory. The players ranked 6 through 12 can win the bonus, but need help.

The forecast looks great, with temperatures near 80 degrees, and a slight chance of showers on Friday and Sunday.

This should be a very close tournament. I have to give the edge to Shanshan with the hot hand, having finished 1st, 1st, 2T, and 3T in her last 4 starts. It's been a while since an LPGA player won three in a row, but she's playing near perfect golf lately.

So Yeon has been a bit off lately. However, she finished in 2nd here last year, and should step up her game.

Lexi has been struggling, too. She didn't record a single top 10 on the Asian swing. She finished 40T here last season. 'Can't see her contending.

Sung Hyun was #1 in the World for a week before losing it to Shanshan yesterday. She's also in the race for the money title, Vare trophy, and Player of the Year honors. 'Should provide motivation to grab it back. She had a 3T, 5T, and a 2nd on the Asian swing. Fairly solid.

Brooke had a decent Asian swing, but needs to play her best for all four rounds, and not just on the weekend.

Lydia, Lizette, In Gee, and Moriya could all factor into the mix. They've all played well recently, but haven't lifted a trophy this season.

I'm a volunteer again this year as a standard bearer. I'm working Thursday and Sunday and am a standby on Friday. Not a bad round 1 group for me:

Lucky you!  I love walking inside the ropes with a group.  Seeing everything in a player's game really helps you understand your own game.

...and just like that my group has changed. I now have

Sei Young Kim
IK Kim
Minjee Lee

Just as good to me!

I will have the 13-15 place players in round 2 and around 45th place in the final round.

zomg I'm so jealous, that is a like a dream group!  Hope it is a lot of fun... bring some good luck with!  Would love to hear any reports you can bring!

The end of the year already.  It feels like a slightly different place from where it started.

Argonne says it all as usual.  When did Shanshan become an unstoppable force?  Wasn't really on my radar first half of year.  It feels a bit like she and Lexi have swapped spots in threat factor... I know I spent the first half in total fear of Lexi.  But she is still well on the way to the Vare.

So Yeon has been bumpy since her win after becoming #1.  Also don't know how her injured wing is doing now, hope it's feeling good.  Mental state seems real important with her, some calm in the off season should be good.  I sure hope she can find a strong performance here, with all these things up in the air.  No matter what happens, I think she's going to come back strong again next year.

In Gee would have to have things like perfect to get the Vare.  I'm hoping for her.  This just wasn't quite the season.

Can't SHP clean sweep just about everything that's up for grabs here?  She's kind of in the strongest position, except for how on-target Shanshan is right now.

To no surprise I'm cheering for IK.  Last week was just warming up to get back into practice... This has been a magic season.  She doesn't need it, but I'd love her to make a big show.

I’m going to take a different look at the field and those that had an off year or isn’t playing in the championship.  Morgan Pressel, no wins and no top tens this year.  Same for Allison Lee.  Surprise player of the year for me?  Moriya Jutanugarn - she just lacks that killer instinct to win a tournament.

They should stick with coverage, unless there is an Ice Dancing Finals about to start, or maybe a replay of a 2017 Men's Major.....Unreal!

Joking aside, that's a good point. I'm going to set up the DVR to manually record The Golf Channel for the two hours after the ABC coverage is scheduled to end.

It will be dark by 5:00.  Surely one hour is sufficient.

Doesn't look like it will be this week. Despite hitting every fairway and 12 greens, she shoots a 5 over 77 and sits in 72nd place ahead of only 2 players. Rather odd that her driving distance for round 1 was something in the 220's.

Sung Hyun and Lydia did what they needed to do. So Yeon and In Gee really have their work cut out for them. Shanshan and Brooke are still in it, but need much better 2nd rounds.

I'm happy So Yeon was able to play and go the whole round.  Her shoulder seemed like a real problem, really hope she's not pushing it too hard because so much is on the line.

I'm still hoping for everyone tomorrow.

One of my pics from today:

I.K. had it going early but fell off late. I was surprised that she was the longest hitter in the group.

Hitting fairways isn't that hard on that course. I "might" even be able to hit all 14. Greens were running slower than usual today.

Tomorrow I have Minjee Lee again, Lindy Duncan and Nelly Korda.

I watched the coverage tonight but didn't make it on TV :(

Doesn't look like it will be this week. Despite hitting every fairway and 12 greens, she shoots a 5 over 77 and sits in 72nd place ahead of only 2 players. Rather odd that her driving distance for round 1 was something in the 220's.

I think Gerina has pretty much packed it in for a while.  They are expecting their first child, and from what I have read she plans on taking all next season off for it, especially with Martin being on the big tour this year.
