Golf Scoreboard Rankings
The Junior Golf Scoreboard system is based on a formula
that reviews a players record in 36-hole or longer tournaments
over the last 365 days. Tournaments drop out of the calculation
after one year. A player must have four events within the
year to be ranked.
The criteria are as follows:
Scoring differential: For the 85 percent of
the player's rounds that are his/her lowest scores, a players
average score is compared to the USGA rating of the courses
they played (65 percent weight).
Strength of Field: Whom did the player compete
against and how strong were the records of the their competitors
Finish: Average finish of the competitor with
consideration given to the size of the field (10 percent).
The Junior Golf Scoreboard typically receives results
for over 2,100 tournaments worldwide and ranks approximately
10,000 11,000 players at any one time.
