More about the The Rolex Annika Major Award

The Award is named after Annika Sörenstam who is regarded as one of the best female golfers in history.

The Rolex Annika Major Award was established in 2014 to recognize the player who, during a current LPGA Tour season, has the most outstanding Major Championship record.

Points are awarded for top-10 finishes in each major: 60 points for first place, 24 for second, down to 2 points for tenth place.

The major winner with the most points at the end of the season wins the award.
