The major goal of the Q-Series is to identify the most LPGA-ready talent. In the past, Final Stage was at one golf club, played over five rounds. Someone could have a bad week or catch the flu or experience the yips on the greens. It’s a roll of the dice. One tournament over five rounds doesn’t adequately provide the best glimpse at who should be on the LPGA.
That’s where Q-Series helps to find the top performers. Players that finish No. 101 to 150 on the LPGA money list during the current season will qualify along with those that finish No. 11 through 30 on the Symetra Tour money list. Players in the top 75 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings will also qualify for Q-Series.
Additionally, the top five players according to Golfweek’s Collegiate Rankings will also skip Stages I and II and right into the Q-Series.
Finally, the top finishers from Stage II will round out the field.
The field will be 108 players and there will be approximately 45 spots up for grabs for the 2019 season.
Q-Series - October 22 - November 3, 2018 at Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, NC. A minimum of the top-45 players and ties will receive LPGA membership for 2019.
- Pinehurst Course No. 6 from October 24-27
