Leading money winners edit

The top ten money winners at the end of the season gained membership on the LPGA Tour for the 2010 season, with those finishing in the top five positions gaining higher priority for entry into events than those finishing in positions six through ten. Finishers in positions six through ten had the option to attend LPGA Qualifying School to try to improve their membership status for 2010.[1]
