The top lady golfers on the LPGA Tour will play for a $500,000 first place check this week in the CME Group Titleholders from TwinEagles Club in Naples, Florida.

This is the second year of a three year commitment by the CME Group, a financial securities corporation based in Chicago, to sponsor the season ending event. 

Hee Young Park won the inaugural CME Group Titleholders last year with a nine-under par performance at the Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando.

Players must qualify for the CME Group Titleholders by earning points throughout the year to be invited to join the elite field.

It offers a total purse of $1.5 million, and is unique in that 33% goes to the winner.  LPGA Tour events normally pay 15% of the total purse for first place.

73 women have qualified for the event and will tee it up on Thursday. 

Featured pairings include:

 9:47   Jessica Korda     So Yeon Ryu         Inbee Park

 9:58   Ai Miyazato        Yani Tseng           Angela Stanford

10:09  Christie Kerr       Suzann Pettersen  Natalie Gulbis

10:20  Michelle Wie       Karrie Webb         Na Yeon Choi

10:31  Azahara Munoz    Paula Creamer      Lexi Thompson

The CME Group Titleholders will be played over the Eagles Course at TwinEagles Club, and will be aired on the Golf Channel November 15-18 from 1:30-4:00 PM EST.
