Granada starts strong at Tour Championship

The Associated Press

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Julieta Granada played bogey free in a tough wind Thursday for a 6-under 66 to take a two-shot lead in the CME Group Tour Championship.

Stacy Lewis was three shots behind and one step closer to $1 million.

The season finale on the LPGA Tour is the conclusion to the Race to CME Globe that pays a $1 million bonus. Only the top nine players in the standings can win the big prize, and Granada isn't one of them. She still hopes to close the year with a title.

Lewis made a late eagle and shot 69.

The top three in the race Lewis, Inbee Park and Lydia Ko have to win the tournament for the $1 million bonus. Park and Ko shot 71.
