  1. So if Inbee Park has to drop out due to injury does it go to the next highest ranked golfer at the cutoff, the next highest golfer at the time of the tournement, or is it up to the country to select the golfer they want to represent them?

    1. I believe Inbee would be replaced by the next highest ranked golfer at the time of the cutoff.
