Now top 10 money-winners on Futures
Tour will gain promotion to LPGA Tour

The Duramed Futures Tour along with the Ladies Professional Golf Association have announced that LPGA membership will be awarded to to five additional players this season, making 10 in all.
The Futures Tour’s top 10 players on the regular season-ending money list will be awarded 2009 LPGA membership at the conclusion of the Iloveny championship in Albany, New York State. That event will be played from September 5 to 7.
“This gives five more players the opportunity for coveted membership on the LPGA,” said Zayra F. Calderon, CEO of the Duramed Futures Tour.
“It rewards our top 10 players for their superior performance during a long, challenging season and it recognizes the Duramed Futures Tour as the pipeline to the LPGA.”
Prior to this change, only players who finished in places one to five on the Duramed Futures Tour as of the conclusion of the last official money event were eligible for LPGA Tour membership
