The wealth has been spread around on the LPGA Tour during 2017 with eight players having won more than once coming into this week's year-ending CME Group Tour Championship. It's an all-star list of golfers, but one name stands out. At age 40, Cristie Kerr is 10 years older than any of this season's multiple winners, and twice as old as one of them, 20-year-old Brooke Henderson. Women's professional golf is a young person's game these days. Kerr, though, is bucking the trend, arriving at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida, sixth on the 2017 LPGA money list and seventh in the Race to the CME Globe. "I'm completely embracing my age," Kerr says. "I have no choice. I think having a 4-year-old kind of keeps you young." Story Continues
Sergio Garcia will use Callaway equipment during this week's DP World Tour Championship, but claims he is still yet to finalise an agreement with the golfing giants. Garcia, 37, is currently on the hunt for a new equipment supplier after former sponsors TaylorMade last week confirmed that they would be ending their 15-year affiliation with the Spaniard. Despite confirming that Callaway are in pole position to seal his signature, the Masters champion denied that an agreement is already in place. "Not yet. But at the moment it's the company that's in front of the other ones," Garcia said. Story Continues
NAPLES, Fla. -- At the end of an LPGA season when success has been spread around, there figures to be plenty of number crunching at the CME Group Tour Championship. That's because the tour arrives at Tiburon Golf Club with a lot of things unsettled when it comes to season honours, including Rolex Player of the Year, Race to the CME Globe and the money title. Given that there have been 22 different winners in 32 tournaments leading up to the 2017 finale, the scramble makes sense. Here are five things to watch for this week. Story Continues
1. A lesson (hopefully) learned The PGA Tour is in the midst of making changes to the FedEx Cup "playoffs," and any alterations to the format can't come soon enough -- especially in light of what happened Sunday on the PGA Tour Champions. It was there at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship where the nightmare scenario occurred -- one that has always been possible in both playoff formats -- as Kevin Sutherland was crowned season-long champion despite that tournament being his only victory of the year. Bernhard Langer, who won seven times and had 16 top-10s in 22 starts this season, is unquestionably the PGA Tour Champions player of the year. But like on the PGA Tour, a player who enters the last event in the top 5 can win the overall title with a victory. Story Continues
Defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick claimed the halfway lead in the DP World Tour Championship after Tommy Fleetwood ensured the Race to Dubai battle would go down to the wire. Fitzpatrick carded a second consecutive 67 at Jumeirah Golf Estates to reach 10-under-par, a shot ahead of the man he beat into second place last year, English compatriot Tyrrell Hatton. Justin Rose, who would overhaul Fleetwood with a remarkable third consecutive victory on Sunday, was a shot further back alongside Julian Suri and Kiradech Aphibarnrat after a costly three-putt bogey on the 18th. And that meant Fleetwood had regained the upper hand -- albeit by a narrow margin -- in his bid to end the season as European No. 1. A superb 65 lifted him 35 places in the 60-man field and to within two shots ...
