Sorenstam Says Rankings Need Tweaked

In a conference call, world number one Annika Sorenstam said that the Rolex Womens’ Golf rankings “definitely needs to be tweaked.”

Its just the latest criticism of a ranking system that—at least on the surface—looks as though it was designed to favor Michelle Wie. The rankings consider the last fifteen matches played over two years, which perhaps not coincidentally, is exactly the number of matches played by Michelle Wie. Wie’s performance in those limited appearances have vaulted her over more established players such as Paula Creamer, Christie Kerr,  Lorena Ochoa and Natalie Gulbis, each of whom pocketed more than $1 million in winnings in 2005.
