Explanation of the United States Tour Ranking formula ↓


Formula

Eligible players are ranked in several categories. Players are given an overall rank based on the average of all their category ranks.

In each row, the top numbers are the player's rank in each category. The bottom numbers are the values used to assign category ranks.
Major category values with a strikethrough have been adjusted.

Eligibility

Players must have at least 2 Elite Series finishes and at least 1 Major finish within the last 18 months to be ranked.
MPO must have a Rating value of 1000+.
FPO must have a Rating value of 880+.

Majors

Majors are included until the corresponding Major is repeated the following year, or until 18 months have passed. Missing Major finishes and Major finishes outside the cash line are adjusted as though the finish was just outside the cash line. If a tour includes 3 or more Majors, a missed Major will be dropped, or if the player plays all the Majors, the worst result can be dropped if it does not improve the player's overall rank.

Elite

Elite is the average finishing position in Elite Series events (DGPT/NT) from the past year. If a player has 12 or more eligible events, only the best 12 finishes are included. If a player has fewer than 8 Elite Series events, an adjustment of +20% per missing event is applied.
The player with the lowest value, i.e. the best average finishing position, is given a rank of 1. The second-best average finishing position is given a rank of 2, and so on.

Rating

Rating is the average round rating in all Majors and included 12 Elite Series events.
The player with the highest Rating value is given a rank of 1, the second-highest a rank of 2, and so on.

Wins, Podium and Top 10 / Top 5

Wins, Podium and Top 10 / Top 5 are the count of the number of times a player has finished within those ranges in all Majors and included 12 Elite Series events.
The player with the highest value (e.g. most Wins) in each category is given a rank of 1 for that category, the second-highest a rank of 2, and so on.

Tiebreakers

Tiebreakers are applied in order:
  1. Most Major wins
  2. Most wins
  3. Finish at Worlds
  4. Rating category value
