Keep up to date with the top 10 players in both the men’s and women’s games with the golf world rankings
The Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) is a system used to rate the performance levels of male professional golfers. It was first introduced in 1986 and is endorsed by the four major championships and six professional golf tours, these are the PGA Tour, European Tour, Asian Tour, PGA Tour of Australasia, Japan Golf Tour and the Sunshine Tour.
How are the World Golf Rankings calculated?
The system used to calculate the rankings can be confusing.
Golfers receive points based on their performance and the quality of the event that they are playing in. Points remain on a player’s tally for two years but are reduced on a sliding scale of 13 weeks so more recent success carries a greater weighting.
A player’s points tally is calculated by dividing the number of points by the number of events they have played in over the two year period with a minimum of 40 events needed to obtain a ranking. The World Golf Rankings are updated every Monday.
