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 80% is the players score compared to the yardage and difficulty of the course. This is also 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
