Min Ji Park has clinched the money list title, but with a win, Hee Jeong Lim (and possibly Ha Na Jang) could join the billionaire club, that small group of players who have won a billion won in a season. Ha Na has already done it before, so she could be the first to do it twice.
With a win, Lim could catch Min Ji for Player of the Year, but Min Ji just needs a low top ten to clinch it.
Scoring title seems to be between Da Yeon Lee and Ha Na Jang. Jang has a .12 stroke advantage.
Rookie of the Year is a toss up. Ga Eun Song has a 34 point advantage over Jung Min Hong, but if Hong beats her this week and gets a top ten, she could easily grab this title.
Ga Eun Song and Hee Jeong Lim really hurt their chances in the Final Round. Hee Jeong Lim only had to shoot three under to win. Hee Jeong had chances for birdies but kept coming up a little short. A win would have put her a lot closer to Min Ji. However she surprised me that she is this close. I thought she would eventually get there, but not this soon.
Ga Eun Song could have all but wrapped up the ROK with an even par round, not five over.
No matter what happens the last Tournament, they both have had a great year. Update, only if Ga Eun win Rookie Of The Year.

I didn't get to see either Tournament. Hee Jeong Lim must be glad the season is almost over. She had another round with only one birdie. This time she shot seventy seven instead of even par. Looking at the scores it must have been a November cold weather day.
It looks like Min J Park has the money and Player of The Year wrapped up.
It also looks like there is a 30-player cut this week (that's what I'm seeing on the leaderboard), which will make it hard for those who had terrible opening rounds. Right now, that cut is +1.
ROY is still up for grabs, but Ga Eun Song has made a bold statement. I think Min Ji will get POY unless Lim does something really amazing tomorrow.
I wasn't sure if that was going to be the cut. If Hee Jeong doesn't come out of her two round slump. It will be her only missed cut of the year, unless the DQ count as a missed cut. I believe that she is the only one of the top twenty golfers without a missed cut. She is also leading the LF which I don't know much about.
I didn't want to jinx Ga Eun Song so I didn't mention her good round earlier.
Edit: By the way Hee Jeong last two rounds is why I don't think she is ready for the LPGA yet.
