Another three players came from the Challenge Tour, two players came from the CBSA China Tour, and a further 16 places were available through the Q School (four Event 1 winners, four Event 2 winners, and four Event 3 winners and 4 Order of Merit places). The rest of the places on to the tour came from amateur events and national governing body (NGB) nominations.
