Natalie Gulbis withdrew from the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship due to illness. She was replaced in the field by Audra Burks, No. 155 on the money list.

While it’s strange that 120 players make up the Tour Championship, it’s even stranger that so many players would choose to skip this event. Can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that the LPGA had to go down as far as No. 155 to fill this field.
