November 18, 2018
Lexi Thompson dispelled the demons and Ariya Jutanugarn pocketed a cool $1 million on Sunday as both left the CME Group Tour Championship a lot richer in very different ways.
Thompson’s four-stroke victory over Nelly Korda at Tiburón Golf Club ended an arduous journey for her that began in 2017 while Jutanugarn completed a sweep of all the top 2018 LPGA awards, firmly establishing herself as the best in the women’s game. In every sense of the word, they both left Naples, Fla., as winners.

On Sunday, Nasa Hataoka was more than a match for that pressure, closing with a 67, capped by a birdie on the final hole, to win the TOTO Japan Classic by two strokes, adding to an LPGA storyline in which globetrotting stars have risen to the occasion on home soil in 2018.

September 15, 2018
In her 18th year on tour, after a wild and tearful final few holes, Angela Stanford became a major tournament champion Sunday.
It was a long journey to an unlikely one-shot victory at the Evian Championship for a player who believed as a rookie in 2001 that major titles would come sooner than her 40th birthday — and probably not in France.
"I would have laughed, 'No way, it's going to happen before'," said Stanford, whose runner-up finish at the 2003 U.S. Women's Open was the first of 13 top-10s in majors without a win.
