I attended the LPGA’s final tournament of the year, the CME Group Tour Championship at the Tibúron Golf Club in Naples, Florida, and it did not disappoint. Nearly every season-long award was up for grabs, and stars like Lexi Thompson, Sung Hyun Park, Ariya Jutanugarn, and Michelle Wie all had a chance to win on the back nine on Sunday. The excitement level was at an all-time high.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the week.

All smiles for the Jutanugarn family and coach Gary Gilchrist after Ariya won the season’s final event at the Tibúron Golf Club in Naples, Florida.The season’s final event was one to remember. With drama and extraordinary play throughout, I can not think of a better way to finish the season. Sung Hyun Park solidified her place as one of the best in the game. Lexi Thompson is stronger because of the obstacles she’s faced and overcome. Lydia Ko is looking comfortable with her new swing. Michelle Wie is ready to win. And Ariya Jutanugarn found her confidence.
What a way to finish 2017.
