Ranking Americas' Best
Professional Golf Players
| Is Pro Golf changing because of Pro Golf Rankings?
Page Content links What we did!
Then what the Tours did!
We did it!
Our goal has been to increase the participation of the best
golf players in the pro tours.
We determined in 2003 the only way to accomplish this was to have
a season long points system. None was found.
We contacted both the major tours many times.
We wrote letters to the tours and to the
players, sent emails and made many phone calls. . We made many,
many entries on the Ladies Professional Golf Association forum
when they had one. None of this got any response.
Until November 2005
We got what we wanted!
The end result will
be better golf
but fewer players in 2007!
What we did in spring of 2005!
After two years we realized that the best pro players made so
much money they were not going to play every event. That is why in
the spring of 2005 we started
splitting the tours. This reduces the number of events a player needs to play
We split the ladies tour into two parts, USA events and global
For the men we created a third
tour between the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.
What the Tours did in fall of 2005!
In the fall of 2005 both major tours 0announced points systems. Isn't
that just a little more than coincidental that after 100+ years
that both have followed our lead? The Ladies
system is too complicated for the average fan to bother with. Even
the players are speaking out against it.
The men have created a heavily weighted points system. This
system has very large numbers at the top which enables big name
players to get enough points to make up for not entering a lot of tournaments.
Just like our system it does have a penalty for not playing in an
event, In the FedEx Cup a player gets zero points, whereas in
ours they get the highest score. Same bottom line affect, except
they get no bonus for winning in our system because ours system shows
exactly what their relative skill is.
has created a Problem for the men.
