    "Women's golf rankings.
    World Rankings (as of 14 August, 2017):

    Eight of the world's top ten women golf players are of East Asian heritage.
    None of the top ten represents a European country.

    Women's golf? Who watches it anyway?

    Sport is about rewarding excellence, the very best.

    Let these women compete against the Fowlers, Speiths and McIlroys in tournaments, winner takes all (well, prize money awarded according to placing)

    Until then I will continue to ignore it, at the risk of being labelled mysogenistic.

    Thank goodness for Sexy Lexi!

    It gives them good practice at pushing trolleys so they can do the shopping better

    Ah, but you mean weekend golfers?

    Surely these 'top tenners' employ caddies?
