Who is Eligible for the 2019 Race to the CME Globe and the CME Group Tour Championship?

Unlike previous years, winning an LPGA Tour event does not earn a player automatic entry into the CME Group Tour Championship. Starting in 2019, the points race is the only way to compete in the CME Group Tour Championship.

Only LPGA Tour Members are eligible to earn points toward the Race to the CME Globe, and points will not be allocated to Members who compete as a sponsor invitation in tournaments that do not have a cut.

How Do the Points Work?

LPGA Tour Members earn points at each official LPGA Tour event, beginning at the 2019 Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions and running through the event held immediately prior to the CME Group Tour Championship.

  • The winner of each official LPGA event will receive 500 Race to the CME Globe points
  • The five LPGA major championships will carry 25 percent more value and the winner of each LPGA major championship will receive 625 Race to the CME Globe points
  • For all events with a cut, points will be awarded to Members who make the cut
  • For all events without a cut, points will be awarded to Members who finish in the top 40 and ties
  • For the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, points will be awarded to Members who finish in the top 20 and ties
  • For the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational, points will be awarded to Members who make the cut; point values are for each player on the team

Who Will be in the Field for the CME Group Tour Championship?

After the event held immediately prior to the CME Group Tour Championship, points earned during the season will be eliminated. The field will be filled by LPGA Tour Members ranked in the order of their position on the Race to the CME Globe points standings. Should more than one player tie for the 60th position in the field, all tied players will gain entry into the CME Group Tour Championship.
