Michelle Wie, with a fresh look, shares 54-hole lead at Tour Championship

The LPGA’s most recognizable player cut her hair and died it blond out of sheer boredom while recovering from appendix surgery. Now she’s on top of a crammed leaderboard at the CME Group Tour Championship, looking to win for the first time since the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open. What looked like an inevitable runaway has turned into a free-for-all at the LPGA’s season-ending event, with four players tied for the lead at 10-under 206 and 22 players separated by three shots. Chief among them is Sung Hyun Park, the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open champ who is looking to become the first player to win both LPGA Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors in the same season since Nancy Lopez accomplished the feat in 1978.

Commissioner Mike Whan touts LPGA's growth, three new events

NAPLES, Fla. -- There will be both continuity and change in the LPGA's future. According to commissioner Mike Whan, the 2018 schedule will consist of 34 events, including the UL International Crown. Three events on the 2017 schedule -- Citibanamex Lorena Ochoa Match Play, Manulife LPGA Classic and MCKAYSON New Zealand Women's Open -- won't be played, but three new events to be announced will take their place.

Three other new events are on the drawing board for 2019, when the New Zealand stop is also expected to return
