The deputy commissioner of the world's biggest women's golf tour, the LPGA, has defended the organisation's announcement that players who can't speak good English will be banned.

The new measures will come into effect next year and lessons will be offered to those needing help.

LPGA Tour deputy commissioner Libba Galloway says learning English should be a priority for the players.
