The Women's World Golf Rankings, also known for sponsorship reasons as the Rolex Rankings, were introduced in February 2006. They are sanctioned by the five main women's golf tours and the organisations behind them: Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA Tour), Ladies European Tour, Ladies Professional Golfers' Association of Japan, Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association, and Australian Ladies Professional Golf, and also by the Ladies' Golf Union, which administers the Women's British Open.
The idea of introducing a set of women's rankings similar to the Official World Golf Rankings was developed at the May 2004 World Congress of Women's Golf, and was first planned for 2005, but then put back to 2006.

Breathed on the world with timid breath.”
