Qualifying

Our first major of the season is fast approaching, and I wanted to lay out how this was going to work. There are four ways to qualify for a major tournament, with three of them being automatic exemptions into the major tournament.

Ways to qualify for this major tournament:
  1. Have won this tournament previously(career-long exemption)
  2. Win any tournament since the last edition of the major was played
  3. Be in the Top 20 of the World Golf Rankings as of Week 2 release.
  4. Earn a spot through the qualification tournament


Qualification tournament:
  • The Top 12 players not meeting one of the first three exemptions listed above will play in a qualifier one week before the major tournament.
  • These 12 players will be seeded 1-12 and seperated into 2 groups.
    • Seeds 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, and 12 will play an 18-hole qualifier on Richmond Pines (9 holes, 1-9) and Hanwell Fields (9 holes, 10-18 )
    • Seeds 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, and 11 will play an 18-hole qualifier on Ashdown Park (9 holes, 1-9) and Sakura CC (9 holes, 10-18 )
    • The top 2 finishers in each qualifier will advance to play in the major tournament.

Anybody who does not qualify for the major tournament will be eligible to play in an alternate tournament run during the same period. Advantages of playing in a major include earning more season points and the WL ranking points earning potential is higher, however, the competition is stiffer in a major tournament.

Good luck to everyone!
