The Tours issued a seven point criteria for qualification and after the close of the LET season and the last domestic full field event on the LPGA Tour, the qualifying nations are as follows:
Qualifying from the LPGA:
Sweden, USA, Mexico, Korea, England, Philippines, Australia, Scotland, Taiwan and Canada.
Qualifying from the LET:
England, France, Sweden, Finland, Wales, Spain, Italy, Germany, New Zealand and Australia.
Sweden, Australia and England met the criteria from both Tours, which resulted in the selection of three further teams: South Africa, Japan and Austria.
Each selection committee will now choose their representatives for the event and the final player selections for each team will be determined by Dec. 1, for the 2005 Women's World Cup of Golf.
The $1 million event, which will become the first-ever truly worldwide team competition co-sanctioned by both Tours, will consist of a three-day, 54-hole competition with a different format on each day: 18 holes of foursomes; 18 holes of four-ball; and 18 holes of stroke-play. The winners will be determined by combining each team's scores from all three days.
