Davies, however, doesn't think she should be in this predicament.
She is angry that the LPGA Tour does not count her earnings from the Evian Masters, where she finished fifth and made $111,402. That would be enough to put her 28th on the money list.
The tournament is co-sanctioned by the LPGA Tour and the Ladies' European Tour, and Davies qualified through LET criteria. Only LPGA qualifiers can count their earnings toward the money list, a rule meant to keep European tour players from taking advantage of the $2.1 million purse.
'I was unaware of the situation at the time, but I think it's disgusting,' Davies told British newspapers. 'The rule has been made by a lot of idiots and I think they've lost their heads.'
Davies contends she is a past champion at the Evian Masters, and that she would have received a sponsor's exemption (Michelle Wie received one) had she not qualified through the European criteria.
Only the top 30 on the money list get into the ADT Championship.
'Even if I make it, I'm not going to play,' Davies said. 'It's a point of principle.'
