HOW THE RACE TO THE CME GLOBE WORKS:
The Race to the CME Globe is a season-long points competition in which LPGA Members accumulate points in every Official LPGA Tournament. At the end of the season, the winning player will be named the “Race to the CME Globe Champion.” The competition begins with the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic in Paradise Island, Bahamas, continues through the Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex in Mexico, and concludes with the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Florida.
Following the Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex, LPGA Members who meet the entry criteria for the CME Group Tour Championship will be seeded based on their position on the Race to the CME Globe Points Standings. Points for each Member will then be reset for the CME Group Tour Championship based on the points reset table.
Wounded Warrior Project® Weekends
Fans will also have one more exciting race to follow throughout the 2014 season with “Wounded Warrior Project® Weekends,” a season-long charity program that will be tied into the Race to the CME Globe. Each Saturday and Sunday at LPGA tournaments, CME Group will donate $1,000 to Wounded Warrior Project® for each eagle that is recorded. This amount will increase to $5,000 for each eagle during the weekend of the CME Group Tour Championship and a formal check will be presented to the Wounded Warrior Project® during the trophy ceremony at the CME Group Tour Championship.
After the Manulife LPGA Classic:
This weekend, 12 total eagles were recorded which brings the total money raised this weekend to $12,000. The CME Group’s donation to the Wounded Warrior Project for weekend eagles has now reached $127,000.
