NOTES:The season finale is upon us this week with the CME Group
Tour Championship in Naples, Florida. The LPGA Tour's major awards and a $1 million dollar bonus is up for grabs.

American Stacy Lewis leads the Rolex Player of the Year standings by only three points over world No. 1 Inbee Park. Lewis also holds a slim advantage in the race for the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average. Lewis has an average of 69.476 while Park sits at 69.571. Lewis also leads Park by $292,849 at the top of the money list. They are the only players that have earned over $2 million this season, and the only players that have won three times.

Nine players have a chance to win the Race to the CME Globe $1 million bonus. They are Lewis, Park, Lydia Ko, Michelle Wie, So Yeon Ryu, Shanshan Feng, Anna Nordqvist, Chella Choi and Karrie Webb. Lewis, Park and Ko are the only players in control of their own destiny and would win the bonus with a victory. The other players would need a victory and some help.

Last year, Shanshan Feng fired a 6-under 66 in the final round to rally and win by one stroke over Gerina Piller. Feng finished at 15-under-par 273. She beat Na Yeon Choi's tournament scoring record from 2012 by one stroke.

In 2011, Hee Young Park collected her first LPGA Tour victory at the season-ending event. Park fired rounds of 71-69-69-70 to win by two strokes over Paula Creamer and Sandra Gal.
