Interesting tidbit.

On raw calculations, Ariya's average ranking points are still higher than Lydia's.
Ariya 13 events, 128.35 points = 9.87
Lydia 22 events. 204.92 points = 9.31

I know Lydia qualified for the Titleholders but has she used all of her sponsor's exemptions for this year?
Extraordinary performance by Lydia. BTW, her ranking is based on 35 events as stipulated by ROLEX and not her 22 events. If her total points were divided by 22 events, she would be number 3, just behind Stacy.
She will continue to move rapidly up the rankings as she gets closer to 35 events, even if she doesn't get many Rolex points in the events she plays.
Do hope she decides to turn pro soon. Get to see her play more often.

Edit: Noticed you mentioned raw points above. Lydia and Ariya will certainly bring lots of excitement to the LPGA if they play next year.

Lydia qualifies for the Evian Championship via her Rolex Ranking and her win in Canada.
A world-class field that especially boasts the top-40 from the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, all winners on the 2013 LPGA Tour including the champions of the Kraft Nabisco Championship, Wegmans LPGA Championship, U.S. Women’s Open and RICOH Women’s British Open, as well as all active Evian Masters winners.

120 players ! - Evian Championship

She has actually played 10 tournaments.

US Open and British Open are not exemptions.
LPGA Champ and Kraft I do not think are exemptions.

Evian as a Major is not an exemption either.
Also she is qualified for CME.

So my math says that she has used 6 exemptions.
Also played 4 majors were she qualified and required no exemption.
Will play 1 more major again were she qualified and required no exemptions
and the CME end of year where she is qualified.

So in reality she would have played 12 tournaments.
