Example:         If 75 players apply from the first 6 categories, all of those applicants will be accepted (this includes any special exemptions granted by the entry committee).  If 8 other players have applied from category 7, then 2 of those will be accepted (based on criteria) to reach 77 total.  The 2 players in category 7 not chosen will be ranked by the committee as alternates until the qualifiers have been played, at which point the alternates will be designated from the qualifiers.  The remaining applicants in category 7, plus those in 8-10 will then only earn entry through the qualifier.  The field size may be reduced if the number of applicants from the 12 categories is less than 84.

 

Note:  The SRM entry committee reserves the right to review the exemption criteria yearly and make changes as necessary.  The decisions of the Entries Committee are final.
