NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Ariya Jutanugarn is occasionally fearful on the golf course, which might seem peculiar given her resume.

She's already clinched the LPGA's player of the year award, her second in the last three seasons. She's already clinched the money title, also for the second time in three years. She's back to No. 1 in the world rankings, will almost certainly have the lowest scoring average on tour this year and finished in the top 10 more regularly than any of her fellow competitors.

If all that wasn't enough, she has the best chance this week at the season-ending tour championship that starts Thursday at Tiburon Golf Club of capturing the Race to the CME Globe - which comes with a $1 million bonus.
