Summerhays Makes Entry List in World Golf Championship in Shanghai

Daniel Summerhays will be playing in the World Golf Championship this week in Shanghai, China where the purse will be over $9 million and the winner’s take will be over $1 million. 

It is a world event and has a limited field restricted to winners of certain major tournaments around the world. Summerhays qualified for the tournament by being the 31st ranked player in the FedEx Cup last year. The Top 30 players in the Fed Ex championship are automatic exemptions, and under certain circumstances the 31st Fed Ex position is also exempt, which was the case this year with Summerhays.

The field also includes specific numbers of limited players from the Asian, Japan, and Australasia Tours.

The current qualification categories (as of 2015)[2] are as follows:

Winners of the four major championships and The Players Championship
Winners of the four World Golf Championships
Top 50 in the OWGR
Top 30 players from the FedEx Cup (minimum of 5; if necessary to satisfy minimum of 5, players from position 31 or lower on 2014–15 FedEx Cup list will be selected)
