The 2016 International Crown was a women's golf team event organized by the LPGA, played July 21-24 at the Merit Club in Libertyville, Illinois, north of Chicago.[1] This was the second International Crown, a biennial match play event contested between teams of four players representing eight countries.

Format

The first three days, Thursday through Saturday, featured round-robin pool play matches at fourball. Each match was worth two points for a win and one point for a halve.[2] Following the completion of pool play, the top two teams in each pool and one wild card team advanced to singles play. The five remaining teams were re-seeded based on points earned in pool play, and each team played one singles match against each of the other teams on Sunday. The total points earned in pool and singles play determined the team champion.[3]

Teams

On April 3, 2016, eight teams qualified to participate in this event, based on the combined world rankings of the top four players from each country: South Korea, United States, Japan, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, England, China and Australia.[5][6] Defending champion Spain did not qualify. The team members were finalized on June 13, 2016, and divided into two pools.[5][7] The top two teams from 2014, Spain and Sweden, failed to make the 2016 field. China and England made the field for the first time.
