Women have been playing golf ever since the Ladies Club of St. Andrew’s in Scotland was formed in response to sexist Scottish males not allowing them to play the game in 1867. Women have slowly earned the equal treatment they deserve in the golfing world and finally achieved what they wanted in 1977 when the PGA began to accept female members. There are many talented female golfers from all over the world. Like some of our previous articles, I hope to draw more serious attention to female sports by exploiting basic human desires.
The Women’s World Golf Rankings, also known for sponsorship reasons as the Rolex Rankings, were introduced in February 2006. They are sanctioned by eight women’s golf tours and the organizations behind them: Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA Tour), Ladies European Tour, Ladies Professional Golfers’ Association of Japan (LPGA of Japan Tour), Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA of Korea Tour), Australian Ladies Professional Golf (ALPG Tour), Symetra Tour, China Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour, the Ladies European Tour Access Series and also by the Ladies’ Golf Union, which administers the Women’s British Open and the United States Golf Association which conducts the U.S. Women’s Open.
The idea of introducing a set of women’s rankings similar to the Official World Golf Ranking was developed at the May 2004 World Congress of Women’s Golf, and was first planned for 2005, but then put back to 2006.
