Rookie Park Sung-hyun Wins Three LPGA Honors

Rookie Park Sung-hyun Wins Three LPGA Honors

Lexi Thompson missed a short putt on the 72nd hole to at least force a play-off in the LPGA season ending CME Group Tour Championship.

Park kept right on attacking.

Lydia Ko taps in a birdie putt on hole No. 9 on Thursday in the CME Group Tour Championship at Tiburón in North Naples. "I putted great the whole day", Thompson said, according to Golf World. "I don't really play break on those".

Leave that to the players chasing her.

For the first time in history there were two players awarded the Rolex Player of the Year award title, with Rookie of the Year and money-list topper Sung Hyun Park finishing tied on points with fellow South Korean So Yeon Ryu. Thompson also claimed the Vare Trophy for the season's lowest scoring average. 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.

It was the former British Open champion's seventh career LPGA title and her second of the year after the Manulife Classic in June, having won five in 2016. But she's new to the LPGA Tour and already has won rookie of the year. She is at 69.15, with Park (69.26) and In Gee Chun (69.27) close behind. "I think I started off with a really good feel, a lot of good shots and some good putts". "Two, three shots of a lead can change at any moment".

"This week to be honest I had no expectations at all", said Jutanugarn, who came into the week with three missed cuts and just one top-20 in her last eight starts. Korda had five birdies on her final nine holes, but it was not quite enough.

"Nothing different from my usual play", Park said. She continued to hang on to the lead on the back nine at Tiburon. "That should not be possible on this course, where the fairways are about 100 yards wide".

Park still is in solid position in her bid to become the first rookie since Nancy Lopez in 1978 to sweep all the major awards. The 22-year-old collected herself before signing autographs on her way to the 18th green ceremony.

When asked if the pressure got to her, Thompson added: "No". But then Thompson missed her par attempt. "What am I going to make?' Luckily, it was the flawless place to hit for a 4". Thompson said earlier this week, if she won, she would donate some of her winnings to charity and probably buy a new auto. "Just tried to stay positive and find something that could work for the last 14, 15 holes".

Park, meanwhile, had everything going her way. It wasn't obviously a very long putt.

Does anything make her nervous?

"I'm not feeling good just because I'm on top of the leaderboard".
