She has so far pocketed $1,754, 523 from 16 events this season, well clear of world No.1 Inbee Park with $878,137 from nine tournaments.

"I really feel like I have scheduled this year very well because I have been feeling very healthy", Park said.

If Park doesn't win, maybe Jutanugarn will. She's also won the U.S. Women's Open twice and the ANA Inspiration and Ricoh Women's British Open once.

Younger sis Ariya brings 10 top 10s and two wins into this week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship, while Moriya brings seven top-10 finishes and new cred as a first-time tournament victor, which she accomplished in April at the HUGEL-JTBC L.A. Open - bringing her younger sister to tears of happiness.

All of the top 100 players in the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) official money list, including 28 major champions, are take set to to take in the 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship, due to start tomorrow at Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer in IL.

Brooke Henderson, who won the 2016 KPMG Women's PGA Championship, lost the event a year ago by one stroke to Danielle Kang.

Talley will try to bounce back after missing the cut at last week's LPGA event - the Walmart NW Arkansas Classic in Rogers, Ark.

Is it now impossible for LeBron James to join the Miami Heat?
The four-time MVP is the star of a free-agent class that includes Paul George , Chris Paul and DeMarcus Cousins, among others. Smith said Thursday that James "reached out to Kevin Durant via text, from what I'm told, about coming to Los Angeles".

"I've been really stressing about that the last four days, since talking to police, talking to insurance and trying to figure out - it's so hard when you're not there trying to figure out what's lost", Park said. The course has hosted the 1989 PGA Championship, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, the U.S. Senior Open, the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links and U.S. Women's Amateur Championship and 26 consecutive Illinois PGA Championships.

It seems that sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn like to keep the LPGA's prize money in the family. She has been par or lower in 19 of her past 20 rounds with 10 top-10 finishes this season, including wins at Kingsmill and the Women's Open. Like, I only got up to eat one meal a day. That's a big change from the past two seasons. She won this event and its forerunner, the LPGA Championship, from 2013 to 2015 and would love nothing more than to add a fourth title.

Even as she recounted the break-in, Park did so with a smile and a shrug, raising the question: Is she really that under control or does the calm demeanor mask inner turmoil. She posted an Instagram video of pulling into the defending champion's parking spot and then soaked up the entire scene. It was her best LPGA finish in four years. "I think she's chill on and off the golf course, though".

Between them the 29 major champions in the field have won 62 major titles.

Henderson might have been edged out by Kang at last year's KPMG Women's PGA Championship, but the Canadian always seems to perk up for this event.

Goetze, meanwhile, was unable to replicate her illustrious junior and amateur golf career on the LPGA Tour. This is a player who knows how to win.
