In other countries, Drive to the Major is first played at the National or Regional Final. From there, the winner advances directly to the qualifying tournament at Royal Belfast.
There is also another way of getting closer towards that tee time on the Monday After Event. Winning a National or Regional Final gets players their invitation for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play the MercedesTrophy World Final in Stuttgart, where Drive to the Major is played once again. The winner of the special competition also advances directly to the qualifying tournament.
