FinalsEdit

The Finals of the Players Tour Championship 2014/2015 took place between 24–28 March 2015 at the Montien Riverside Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. It was contested by the top 24 players on the European Tour Order of Merit, and the top eight from the Asian Tour Order of Merit. If a player qualified from both Order of Merits, then the highest position counted and the next player on the other list qualified. If a player finished on both lists on the same place, then the European Tour Order of Merit took precedence and the next player from the Asian Tour Order of Merit qualified. The seeding list of the Finals was based on the combined list from the earnings of both Order of Merits.[21]
