Eligibility Notes

The following policy will be adopted at close of entries for players who are members of and exempt through both the Sunshine Tour and the DP World Tour. The highest ranked dual Member on the DP World Tour Exemption Category list will be allocated to (b) above, the second highest ranked dual Member will be allocated to (a) above. This alternate allocation will be repeated until all such exempt dual Members are allocated to one Tour or the other.

If there are less than 72 Players entered through (a) above, then the remaining spots will be allocated alternately to (b) & (e) above with the first spot going to (b).

If any of the spots in (d) or (e) above are unused, then the remaining spots will be added to the respective Tour’s allocation in (a) or (b)

When a player who is a member of both Tours becomes exempt, he will remain allocated to the Tour under which he first became exempt, even if he subsequently becomes exempt through his “home” Tour.
