Based On Facts!
Our goal is to see more of the best players.
The results may surprise you.
Like other sports that have found fact based rankings work
we base our final championship rankings on a full season of competition. Real leaders and champions
are named based on their scores and their ability to repeat championship
Which pro golfer really plays better? We let the facts speak
A player who only plays great five or six times a year, may not
really be as great a player as the one who competes regularly.
Why do these stats produce these kind of charts?
How quickly can a players position or points change?

The Pro Golfers with the physical stamina and
mental focus to maintain their skill to play
consistently most often over an entire season are the

Pro Golf Rankings compares your favorite pro golfers based
on the facts, while other rating systems compare opinions.
They all have some personal opinion buried in their math and

the full field there would be no #1 ranking for the Super Stars as there would
be no one to compare them to.
Under our system, just like any other player who only plays occasionally,
Super Stars are affected by the fact they do not play very often.
Whereas in rating systems that are based on and use personal opinion
they can be rated at the top.
In any other sport if a player fails to appear for an event
they get a zero.
You cannot do that in golf.
What you can do is give the highest score in any round plus 1
stroke. This is the same as giving a zero in any other sport.
