Ariya wins CME Group Tour C'ship

Ariya wins CME Group Tour C'ship

Lexi Thompson's two-foot miss on the 72nd hole of the LPGA Tour's season-ending CME Group Tour Championship in Florida was - for any reasonable golf fan - hard to watch.

Thompson reacts to her miss at the CME Group Tour Championship.

"Even (though) I played so bad last few months", said Ariya, "I learned a lot, and I'm growing up a lot".

"I mean, it was a short putt", she said of the remaining 2 feet. "I putted great the whole day", Thompson said.

"I'm not feeling good just because I'm on top of the leaderboard". I guess it's just golf. You know, insane things happen like that.

"It", however, was Lexi's shocking miss of the near-tap-in that would have forced Jutanugarn to make a birdie at the last to get into a playoff. I guess it's just golf. "I really wasn't thinking about the outcome any more at all".

"Probably just never give up (is the most important thing I learned)", she said. "And I have so much fun this week".

Thompson and Korda both shot 67 Sunday.

Trump Wants to Shutdown Charity Foundation, But He Legally Can't
However, the New York Attorney General's office tells Bustle that the foundation isn't yet allowed to legally dismantle itself. Trump won, he directed his lawyers to begin the process of closing the foundation to avoid conflicts of interest.

Pettersen dropped four shots in a three-hole stretch by getting out of position off the tee and she shot 39 on the back nine for a 70 to fall five shots behind.

South Korean Eun-Hee Ji, who shot a 67 Sunday, and Sweden Pernilla Lindberg (68) finished tied for fourth, two strokes off the lead. It was the 2016 British Open champion's seventh career LPGA title and her second of the year after the Manulife Classic in June.

For the first time in history, there are two Players of the Year. That's after Park, carrying a three-shot lead at the halfway point, blew out with a 75 in her third round to leave her on nine-under, in a seven-way tie for second, a shot back. Shanshan Feng, who made her debut at No. 1 in the world, is coming off two straight victories and can capture the Globe and player of the year with a victory.

Thompson would have won Player of the Year honors if she had won CME Group Tour Championship.

Thompson was the top finisher among the five players who could have ensured the $1 million by winning in Naples, the rich prize soothing the sting of defeat.

Thompson got a couple nice consolation prizes with year-end awards. Thompson at least could play that shot, and she eventually holed a 6-foot putt to escape the bogey.

The slip cost Thompson Player of the Year honors (shared by Sung Hyun Park and So Yeon Ryu), a move to world No. 1 thanks to the 30 points the victor earned, and a shot at the tourney trophy when Jutanugarn birdied the hole to win by one stroke.
