LPGA Wounded Warrior Project A Hole In One


Yesterday, 17 year old Lydia Ko netted the biggest payday in women’s golf history, winning both the Race to the CME Globe and the CME Group Tour Championship for a $1.5 million windfall.

The Race to the CME Globe also marked the final stop for the “Wounded Warrior Project® Weekends,” a season-long charity program tied into the Race to the CME Globe. Each Saturday and Sunday at LPGA tournaments, CME Group donated $1,000 to Wounded Warrior Project® for each eagle that is recorded. The amount increased to $5,000 for each eagle during the weekend of the CME Group Tour Championship.

Through the 32 tournaments prior to the CME Group Tour Championship, $283,000 had been raised and while no eagles were made on the weekend in Naples the CME Group generously rounded up to $300,000 and a check was presented to the Wounded Warrior Project® during the trophy ceremony.
