With all of its codes and pseudo-legalese, the Player Status page at lpga.com has taken many hours for me to decipher. To save myself some future time, I created a reference doc so I can quickly determine how long a player will be exempt. Since I get the occasional exemption question, I decided to post it and add it to my golf links so you can reference it yourself. This info is as accurate as I can make it as of January 25, and I don’t plan on updating it until the next off-season. The year a player is listed under is the year she is exempt through.

Forgive my short-handing the names – typing 138 last names is plenty enough. If eye-balling this is too difficult, just Ctrl-F and type the last name you’re looking for and you’ll find her if she’s exempt.
