The field of eight countries will be determined by the combined Rolex World Ranking of the top four players from each country as of the Rolex World Rankings published on April 4th, 2016. Countries must have a minimum of four ranked players to be eligible. Note that this date will determine the eight countries that qualify for the event. It does not guarantee a spot on the team for the four players whose rankings were used to calculate the country rank.
The final field of 32 players will be determined via the Rolex World Rankings on June 13, 2016. At this point, the top-4 ranked players from each pre-qualified country will qualify for their respective country’s team. Note that if a player ranked in the top-4 of a pre-qualified country chooses not to compete or is unable to compete, the spot will be filled by the next highest ranked available from the Rolex World Ranking for that country.
