Golfing is a one of the first few sports that allowed women into its fold and they in turn propelled this game to a higher standard. Participation of women on such a grand scale would hardly have been possible had it not been for the unfaltering support of brands like Rolex. Apart from being hailed as the forerunner of the watch world, Rolex has developed the idea of promoting excellence on a global scale by sponsoring a number of sporting events like golf. Rolex has played a pivotal role in the United States and promoted a number of golfing events for women through collaboration with several organizations. In a bid to provide greater opportunity to women in all spheres of activity, Rolex ensures that due recognition and award is bestowed on talented women golfers.

The incredible rise in popularity as well as the astronomical prize money offered has proved to be beneficial for the game.
