Australians could fill up to four places in the season-end championship of the LPGA Tour in Florida next month, with Minjee Lee and Hannah Green in charge.

Lee is fifth in the standings of the Race to CME Globe with three more tournaments left in the regular season, and Green is 20th, while Victoria & # 39; s Su Oh is safe in 29th position.

Queenslander Katherine Kirk also has a chance to play in the $ US5 million tour championship, in 53rd place as the season comes to an end with an Asian swing. The top 60 players and draw continue to the climax of November 21-24 at Tiburon Golf Club in Florida.

The LPGA Tour changed the format for 2019 with prize money doubled from $ 2.5 million last year to $ 5 million, and canceled the previously offered bonus pool, similar to the Fedex Cup for the men's tour. As a result, the $ 1.5 million winner is the largest in women's golf.

No Australian has won the CME Globe Tour Championship in its current form.

Lexi Thompson of the United States won the tournament last year, while Ariya Jutanugarn from Thailand won the bonus pool.

Kirk and Oh were in 38th place in the weekend in the Shanghai tournament, with Lee 50th behind the American Danielle Kang.

The tour goes to South Korea this week for the BMW Ladies Championship, with Lee, Oh and Green participating.
