  Field set for the Tokyo Women's Olympic Games |  LPGA

With the conclusion of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the 60 players who will be allowed to represent their countries at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo were determined via the update of the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings on June 29th. The top 15 players are eligible to play in the Olympic Games, with a limit of four players from a given country. The United States, led by world number 1 Nelly Korda, and the Republic of Korea, led by world number 2 Jin Young Ko and 2016 defending champion Inbee Park, are the only two countries that have the maximum four players behind Send to Japan.

Beyond the top 15, players are eligible to participate based on the Rolex ranking, with a maximum of two eligible players from each country that does not already have two or more players in the top 15. Nineteen countries send two athletes while 15 countries are represented by one athlete.

The following 60 players are qualified to represent their countries from August 4th to 7th at the Kasumigaseki Country Club.
