Definitions
¹For the purpose of defining eligibility for selection for the 2018 European Ryder Cup team only, all references to Member(s) and Membership in the eligibility criteria referred to above shall mean only those European Members of the European Tour, whether Ranked Members, Affiliate Members, Honarary Life Members, Past Champions or other Members of distinction or Ranked European Members of the European Challenge Tour.

Note 1: Points won on The Ryder Cup Points List can only be earned by a Player whilst a Member¹ of the European Tour (as defined in the preceding section).

* In the Official Season in which The Ryder Cup is to be played, if any Ranked Member¹ has not fulfilled these Membership obligations at the time when The European Ryder Cup team is selected, he must have committed to Participate in and there must remain sufficient Race to Dubai Tournaments in that Official Season for the Member to be able to do so.

Note 3: A Non-Member taking up Membership¹ of the European Tour for an Official Season that commences during the qualification period, (referred to in paragraph (1) above) can only earn points from the date of the first Race to Dubai Tournament of that Official Season or the first Race to Dubai Tournament for which the Player is a Member¹ of the European Tour, whichever is the latter.

Note 4: All decisions and/or disputes relating to a Player’s eligibility for selection for a European Ryder Cup team including any issues relating to nationality, citizenship, domicile or residency of a Player will be determined by the European Tour’s Tournament Committee, subject to the ratification of any such decision by the Ryder Cup Policy Board (as the same may subsequently be known) of Ryder Cup Europe LLP.
