The Men’s and Women's World Amateur Golf Ranking system ranks the top male and female amateur golfers in the world on the basis of their average performance in Counting Events over a rolling cycle of the previous 52 weeks.
The Mark H McCormack Medal is awarded to the WAGR Number One at the culmination of the amateur season, following the US Amateur and European Amateur championships.
For the 2017 season, four RDGA events will be factored into the World Amateur Golf Rankings. These events are:
- The RDGA District Championship
- The RDGA Match Play Championship
- The RDGA Junior Boys Championship
By competing in these events, local golfers give themselves the opportunity to see how they match up against other golfers around the country and around the world! We are very excited to bring this level of prestige and competition to our local events.
