The final tournament of the LPGA Women’s Golf Tour since 2011. An elite field in which the top 60 players in the CME point ranking at the end of the previous tournament are eligible to participate. The winner will receive a tour record of $2 million in winnings and the title of “Race to CME Glove Champion.” The venue was designed by Greg Norman and located in the southern part of the Florida peninsula, featuring pine forests, ponds and undulating greens.

From Japan, Ayaka Furue, Yuka Saso, and Hinako Shibuno participated, led by Nasa Hataoka, who finished in 2nd place, just one stroke behind the previous tournament. WOWOW, which broadcasts and broadcasts the tournament live every day, conducted a preliminary interview. ■ Nasa Hataoka

Q.It’s finally the final race, but how was it looking back on the 6th season? “Looking back at this season, I was able to win once in the spring, but it was also a frustrating season because I couldn’t get involved in the battle for the championship after that.
Q.I think Bermuda grass is quite eye-catching, but what area do you think will be the key point this week?
“It’s the same with the fairway, but if it’s on the opposite side, it’s difficult to get a good distance from the fairway, so I’m a judge in that area. I think it will become very important.”
Q. It seems that every year this tournament is a competition, but what do you think the winning score will be this week?
“I have an image that my score is very good every year, so I would like to do my best with one goal of 20 under.”
Q.This year’s winning prize is a big money of 2 million dollars. If you receive it, what would you like to use it for?
“Yesterday, an official of the LPGA asked me that question, but I can’t think of anything that comes to mind, so I’d like to go on a leisurely trip with my family.”
Q.Then, it’s time for the final round. Thank you for your enthusiasm! “One of my goals for this year was to win multiple championships, so this is my last chance, so I will do my best to make sure I win.” ■ Ayaka Furue

Q.It was the final race, but what kind of season was it looking back on your rookie season?
“The first year came early. I didn’t think I could win the
championship in my rookie year.
Q.In addition to winning in your rookie year, you have been in the top 10 many times. Do you have any feedback or any issues that you see for next year?
“There are still many issues to be solved. I would like to increase the technology around the green.”
Q. Every year this tournament is a course of improvement, but what do you think the winning score is?
“I don’t know (laughs). But since every win is a big score, I think I have to be in the 60’s every day.”
Q. If you win this week, $2 million is big money. If you receive $2 million, what would you like to use it for?
“I will save money for something (laughs).”
Q. Please tell us your enthusiasm for the final race!
“This is the last game of the year, so I hope I can play my best until the end and enjoy it.”

Q.It’s finally the final round, but what kind of season was it for you? “I think it was a season where I learned a lot.”
Q. I believe you were competing with the new Club Ball with sponsors this season. How was that?
“I think it’s a really good ball since the beginning of this year, and I think I needed some time to adjust, but I think I was able to adjust it.”
Q. There is only one game left, but what is your impression of this week’s course?
“It’s almost the same as last year, and the turf is difficult and long. The greens are also difficult, so I think it’s a very
challenging course.”
Q.By the way, this week’s winning prize is $2,000,000.
“I will save money (laughs).”
Q. Please tell us your enthusiasm for the final race!
“I want to do my best to have fun and learn a lot.”

Q.It’s finally the final race, but looking back on your rookie year, what kind of year was it?
“It’s been a year where I’ve really had a lot of experience. First of all, I want to take it as a great feeling that I was able to come to this place in my rookie year.”
Q. You said that the US tour was your dream stage, but what was it like after you actually came?
“After all, there are a lot of really high-level players, so I keep bouncing off the wall. But it’s a very rewarding place, and the environment makes me want to get stronger and stronger, so I really want to get better day by day. I think”
Q. There is only one game left in this season, but what do you think about this course in Florida? “I landed in Florida for the first time, but I think the grass on the green is similar to that of Scotland. The grass is quite strong, and I felt that my eyes were strong. (laughs)” Q.It’s a big tournament where the winning prize is 2 million dollars. What would you like to do with the 2 million dollars?
“For the time being, I want to go to a candy store, so I want to buy something there (laughs).
