- RACE TO CME GLOBE
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.
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.
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.
