How new CME Globe format would look in past years

RSS

So how would the new Race to the CME Globe have played out it if were in effect the last three seasons?

Here’s a look:

2013 – Another crown for Inbee

Inbee Park was the Rolex Player of the Year, and she would have won the CME Globe, too, but not without some final-round angst. By winning the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship, Shanshan Feng almost stole the Globe and the $1 million prize that goes with it. Park needed a strong closing round of 68 and T-5 finish to secure the Globe. Feng nearly leaped from seventh to first in points by winning the season finale. If Park hadn’t finished T-6 or better in the season finale, she would have lost the Globe.

Here’s what the points leaderboard would have looked like after it was reset going into the 2013 season finale:

1 Inbee Park, 5,000.

2 Suzann Pettersen, 4,500.

3 Stacy Lewis, 4,000.

4 So Yeon Ryu, 3,600.

Here’s what the final points standings would have looked like after the CME Group Tour Championship:

1 Inbee Park, 6,500.

2 Shanshan Feng, 5,900.

3 Stacy Lewis, 5,200.

4 Suzann Pettersen, 4,820.

Notably, Pettersen fell out of the money in the season finale, dropping to fourth. Only the top three point winners win money with $150,000 for second and $100,000 for third. Pettersen would have dropped out of the money with her T-29 finish in the season finale.

2012 – Choi overtakes the favorites

Lewis was the Rolex Player of the Year in ’12, Park the LPGA’s leading money winner, but neither would have gone home with the CME Globe. Na Yeon Choi would have taken it with her strong finish. Choi would have leaped from fourth to first in points after winning the CME Group Tour Championship.

Here’s what the points leaderboard would have looked like after it was reset going into the 2012 season finale:

1 Stacy Lewis, 5,000.

2 Inbee Park, 4,500.

3 Yani Tseng, 4,000.

4 Na Yeon Choi, 3,600

Here’s what the final points standings would have looked like after the CME Group Tour Championship:

1 Na Yeon Choi, 7,100.

2 Stacy Lewis, 5,320.

3 So Yeon Ryu, 5,200.

4 Inbee Park, 5,000.

2011: It’s all Yani, all the time

Yani Tseng dominated 2011, winning seven LPGA titles, two of them majors. She was Rolex Player of the Year and the LPGA’s leading money winner, and she would have won the CME Globe, too.

Here’s what the points leaderboard would have looked like after it was reset going into the 2011 season finale:

1 Yani Tseng, 5,000.

2 Cristie Kerr, 4,500.

3 Na Yeon Choi, 4,000.

4 Stacy Lewis, 3,600.

Here’s what the final points standings would have looked like after the CME Group Tour Championship:

1 Yani Tseng, 6,200.

2 Na Yeon Choi, 5,800.

3 Cristie Kerr, 5,700.

4 Paula Creamer, 4,800.

*The winner of the CME Group Tour Championship gets 3,500 points, second place gets 2,400 and third place gets 2,200 with points continuing to lessen the lower a player finishes.
