Ecuador’s Daniela Darquea currently occupies the 60th spot in the Race to CME Globe standings, which means she’d be the final player in the field. It doesn’t matter who tops this list because anyone in the CME field can win the record-setting $2 million first prize. The CME standings mean nothing once the Tour Championship starts.

Darquea is in the field in Japan. She holds a three-point lead over Pornanong Phatlum. Every player who competes all four rounds at the Toto Japan Classic will earn CME points as it’s a no-cut event.

The Pelican Women’s Championship in Belleair, Florida, will be the cutoff to qualify for the season-ending event at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida.
