Lydia Ko will probably have to clear out a lot of extra space in her trophy case this weekend.

As she heads into the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship, Lydia is either in the driver’s seat or right in the mix for virtually all of the LPGA Tour’s biggest awards. That (long) list includes:
Race To The CME Globe: She won the season-long points race and the $1 million bonus that goes with it last year, and she’s in 1st place on this year’s race going into the Tour Championship. If she wins the Tour Championship (like she did last year), Lydia will be looking at another $1.5 million payday.
Player Of The Year: This award is given out based on points too, and Lydia is the leader going into this week.
The Money List: She’s the leader going into this week. You’re probably starting to see a trend.
Lowest Scoring Average: Lydia is a close second heading into this week, and with a good finish she will likely win this award too. She would be the youngest player to do so.
Rookie Of The Year: Just kidding. She already won that last year.
