Invitations for the championship are sent to the leading players from the 29 IOC-recognized countries and territories from this region that are current members of the International Golf Federation. Each country is automatically provided with two positions, which are to be filled by their best-ranked players from the World Amateur Golf Ranking™ as of 23 August 2017.
If there is only one player or there are no players from the country in WAGR™, a federation is able to nominate one or two players accordingly provided the player(s) have a handicap of 5.4 or less. The host country can nominate enough players, if needed, to fill up to six positions.
The remainder of the field is filled by taking the next best-ranked players from WAGR™.
A complete list of confirmed players will be posted as names become available.
