DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (AP) - The LPGA Tour has signed a three-year deal with CME Group to be the title sponsor of its season-ending Titleholders tournament in Florida.

CME Group has been involved with the LPGA Tour by hosting pro-am events and sponsoring the Solheim Cup. The title sponsorship gives the LPGA a big boost in a sagging economy, particularly with such a marquee event.

The Titleholders is the new name for its Tour Championship, to be played Nov. 17-20 at Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando. It features a unique criteria for its 75-player field, with the top three finishers from all 25 LPGA events qualifying for the season finale.
