How the Rolex Standings are calculated…
The Women’s World Golf Rankings were first launched in 2006 and are a points based system used to rank the world’s best golfers.
The points are calculated based on a golfer’s performances in tournaments during a rolling two year period.
The Rolex Rankings are weighted in favour of the current year and even more importance placed on the most recent 13 weeks.
Points are reduced in 91 equal decrements following week 13 for the remaining weeks of the two-year Rolex Ranking period.
The rankings are updated each week following events played on 10 ten women’s professional golf tours – China Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour (CLPGA), Chinese Taipei Ladies Professional Golf Association (TLPGA), Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association (JLPGA), Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association Step Up Tour (JSU), Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA), Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association Dream Tour (KDT), Ladies European Tour (LET), Ladies European Tour Access Series (LETAS), Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), the Epson Tour (EPSON), and the Women’s Professional Golf Association Tour of Australasia.
The Royal and Ancient (R&A), which administers the AIG Women’s British Open, and the United States Golf Association (USGA), which conducts the U.S. Women’s Open, also fall under the Rolex Rankings.
Each weekly tournament carries an allocated number of points based on the strength of field, which are then distributed between the players in the field.
