Nelly Korda will win the CME Group Tour Championship 1 point each way at 11-1 odds on OKBET.
The CME Group Tour Championship, which is the final event of the LPGA Tour season, will begin on Thursday at noon UK and Ireland time in Florida. The winner will receive a first prize of $2 million.
Bookmakers are going to be wary of laying each-way bets on the rock-solid New Zealander Lydia Ko because she is the tournament favorite and she is so consistent. Ko has competed in 21 events so far this year, and he has finished in the top ten 13 times.
The competition will take place on Tiburon Golf Club’s Gold Course. Ko has finished in the top ten in six of her nine races at this venue, further solidifying her position as the industry leader; however, the value option for this week may be Nelly Korda.
The American woman, who is 24 years old, has perfected the timing of her comeback to her best form. The dominant force from the previous season was derailed by health problems, but Korda’s victory in the Pelican’s Women’s Championship last week showed that she is right back in business and ready to go.
On Sunday, Korda won her eighth title on the LPGA Tour thanks to rounds of 66, 66, and 64, and since then, she has made the short journey south to Tiburon with a renewed sense of confidence.
Korda, who was born in Florida and currently resides in Bradenton, has the opportunity to visit her family during the three-hour drive from Belleair to Tiburon, which serves as the venue for the Pelican competition. Since there were only three rounds in the competition that took place the week before, there is a good chance that a revitalized and motivated Korda will repeat his victory from the previous week.
In five total Tiburon starts, Korda has finished in the top ten four times, with one second place and two third place finishes. She has a chance to make up for all of those close calls by finally winning the trophy.
