World No. 2 Jutanugarn finishes on top in Race To CME Globe


11-21-2016 16:04 BJT

U.S. women's circuit was wrapping up its season with LPGA Tour Championship. World number two Ariya Jutanugarn was looking to edge top-ranked Lydia Ko and claim the CME Globe as the top ladies golfer, along with a million dollar bonus. In the meantime, Charley Hull would be trying to keep her overnight lead, and end the campaign with her first win on U.S. soil.

This is In-Gee Chun on the 13th green, sinking the second of her five birdies. The South Korean finishes eighth and earns the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average this season.

Ko's approach at 15 took her to the beach, so the New Zealander comes up with a nice third shot that sets her up to save par. But the 19-year-old would end up 8-shots off the pace.

That means advantage Jutanugarn as she tweets on the 13th hole. That Thai would end up in a tie for fourth, 5-back of the winner.

So-Yeon Ryu shared the lead until her approach found the bunker at 17. The South Korean would bogey and take second, at minus-17.

Hull birdies that hole, and putts out on 18 for a two-shot victory. This is the 20-year-old's first LPGA win, to go along with one on the Ladies Eurotour. The Englishwoman ends the season raising a nice piece of glassware.

While the box Jutanugarn is holding represents a big bump in her bank account, as she edges Ko for the coveted CME Globe.

Hull wrapped up the weekend at 19-under-par, followed by Ryu, while Jennifer Song was four shots off the pace. China's Feng Shanshan tied for eighth, at minus-12. Jutanugarn finishing three strokes ahead of Ko helped the World number two end the campaign with best player honors.
