The season ends with this one. The weather looks decent with temperatures in the 70's, and moderate winds. There's a chance for scattered storms on Thursday, but otherwise it should be mostly sunny.
A very strong field, although a few players have decided to skip it, including Inbee, Shanshan, In Kyung, and Amy Yang.
Coverage is decent with 3 hours each day. Please note that the final round coverage is on ABC, so you'll need to check your DVR settings. I had to manually set up my DVR to record the final round. Just in case the tournament runs long, I also set up the DVR to record several hours on the Golf Channel starting at 4:00 pm ET.
Ariya, Minjee, Brooke, Nasa, and Sung Hyun all control their own destiny. A win guarantees them the $1 million dollar CME bonus.
I think it's hard not to pick Ariya to run the tables. She's had three top 5 finishes in her last four starts, nine top 10's in her last nine starts, and hasn't finished outside the top 20 since June. Minjee and Danielle have been in the mix the last few tournaments, and should see the top of the leaderboard. Lydia generally plays well here.
