In order for an individual to be ranked by Global Junior Golf Rankings™, they must compete in events that adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Must be between the ages of 5-19 years old
  • Must have competed in two or more one-day or multi-day stroke play tournaments with the following:
    • Total of five players or more in each division
    • Completed FOUR 18-hole rounds with a no-stroke-limit rule in place for the 5-19 division
    • The event must be completed and the results submitted, within one week, including all matching player information (i.e., name, city, state, and country.)​

How the

Rankings are Computed

We use four criteria to compute a player's overall ranking and their ranking within their graduation class.

  • Tournament Score (80%)
    After all of the tournament results are submitted, the rankings are calculated excluding the 20% of a players scoring differential. This is the average difference of their individual round scores compared to their tournament rounds completed in the last one-year period.
  • Head-to-Head (10%)
    The number displayed, is the result of a player playing against another competitor in the same GJGR tournament. This criteria counts for 10% of a player's ranking calculation.
  • Top-Five Finish (5%)
    This criteria displays the finishes for a player. Top-Five Finishes counts 5% in the ranking computation, which means the more tournaments a competitor finishes in the top-five, he receives credit for the Finish.
  • Weather (5%)
    The weather criteria* will be 5% of a player's ranking calculation and will be determined as follows:

    *Based on the average weather during the full tournament. All weather will be verified by a GJGR staff member
