LPGA-Tour-Championship-anna-nordqvistLPGA Tour rookie Anna Nordqvist won the season-ending Tour Championship, capping off a year in which she started with limited playing privileges on the Tour and went on to also win the LPGA Championship, finish second in the Rookie of the Year race and end the season 15th on the official LPGA money list.

The Tour Championship, played for the first time in Houston, Texas, was delayed several times by rain and eventually shortened to 54 holes. With the final round played on Monday, November 23, Nordqvist shot a 7-under-65 to capture the tournament trophy by two strokes over Lorena Ochoa.

Meanwhile a separate drama played out as Ochoa and Jiyai Shin battled it out for the Player of the Year trophy. Ultimately it came down to a chip-in for birdie on the 18th hole for Shin to grab the title from three-time defending Player of the Year Ochoa. Shin missed and Ochoa kept the title by one point.

The Tour returns for the 2010 season February 18 at the Honda LPGA Thailand.
