The initial Race for the Card standings arrived following the conclusion of the Epson Tour season-opener Florida’s Natural Charity Classic at the Country Club of Winter Haven. Every year, the top 10 in the Race for the Card earn LPGA Tour membership for the following season.
From 1999-2002, the official qualifying tour of the LPGA handed out three cards. Then from 2003-2007, the number increased to five before 10 were distributed starting in 2008. Since the inaugural year, 172 players have graduated to the big stage.
Below is a look at the top 10 following the first event of the 2022 Epson Tour season.
