Keep up to date with the women's game's top 10 players with the golf world rankings

First introduced in 2006, the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings is sanctioned by eight major tours around the world covering professional and amateur levels. The LPGA Tour, Ladies European Tour, LPGA of Japan Tour, LPGA of Korea Tour, Australian Ladies Professional Golf Tour, Symetra Tour, China LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour Access Series all acknowledge the rankings.

How are the Women’s World Golf Rankings calculated?

The women’s ranking run on a very similar system to the men’s world golf rankings and are calculated over a two-year period. Players collect points from completing events on the sanctioned tours but after two years those points are wiped.

The points available at each event are determined by the strength of the field which is based on the world rankings of the players competing. The only exceptions to this rule are the five majors, Symetra Tour tournaments, China LPGA tournaments and LET Access Series events which have set amounts on offer.
