- QUALIFYING TOURNAMENT
- RACE TO CME GLOBE
The CME Group Tour Championship field will be determined as follows:
Following the Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex, LPGA Members who meet the entry criteria for the CME Group Tour Championship will be seeded based on their position on the Race to the CME Globe Points Standings. Points for each Member will then be reset for the CME Group Tour Championship based on the points reset table listed on the next page. The reset will ensure that the race will be won at the season-ending tournament.
LPGA Members finishing in the top 40 and ties at the Tour Championship will receive Race to the CME Globe points (CME Group Tour Championship Points Distribution table is shown below) and the winner of the CME Group Tour Championship will receive 3,500 points.
At the conclusion of the CME Group Tour Championship, the points each player earns at the Tour Championship will be added to her reset points. The player with the highest point total will be named the winner of the Race to the CME Globe.
In the event of a tie in the Race to the CME Globe, the winner will be decided by a sudden-death playoff immediately following the completion of the competition.
Note: Ties – Players tied in the Race to the CME Globe Points Standings at the conclusion of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational will each be awarded reset points for the tied position. Points will not be averaged and distributed to the tied positions.
