  2. Rules:All qualifying events would need to be played using Match Play rules, although participants will be allowed to ‘finish the round’ after their match concludes
    1. If playing Matchplay, these players will NOT participate in the other game of the day or Virtual League in order to ensure players follow Matchplay rules and scoring

    2. must have played in a minimum of 3 LPGA Amateurs events during the past 12 rolling months before each qualifier
    3. must be signed up as a ‘willing participant’ to attend the 2020 CalCup (April 25/26) at Sycuan
  4. Points allocation: At each of the 6 events:
    1. Win = 4 points, Tie = 2 points, Participation/Loss = 1 point
    2. Tie breakers / placement of names in the ranked list will be based on quality of wins which will give more credit to wins/ties than the participation points
  5. Pairings Procedure:Once we have the list of participants for the season, we will identify current indices (using the July 1st revision as a starting point) and rank the group in ascending order.All players will play the participant whose handicap most closely matches their own who is also attending the event and the two players have not previously been matched together.
    *At the July 21st Arrowood round only, we may also control that the players on each of the four LPGA Cup teams are playing against members from other teams.
