The R&A - Working for Golf

GB&I Women’s Order of Merit

The GB&I Women's Order of Merit (formerly LGU Order of Merit) runs on a 52 week cycle and uses information extracted from the WORLD AMATEUR GOLF RANKINGTM (WAGRTM). A minimum divisor (number of rounds) of 17 is applied.

The winner will be announced on completion of the Ladies' British Open Stroke Play Championship. The winner will gain a full exemption to the Ricoh Women’s British Open to be played the following year, provided she remains an amateur.
