How Our Fantasy Golf Ranking System Works
Our proprietary ranking system ranks players according to their recent success, so you can see who’s hot and who could play well in the upcoming tournament. Factored into our point system are recent tournament performance, cuts made, top 5s, and strength of field for every tournament. A special emphasis is placed on cuts made vs. cuts missed. Some players are more volatile than others. A guy will win a tournament, but then miss seven straight cuts. Trying to pick the one out of eight tournaments is a losing proposition so we like some consistency with the potential to win ( a high ceiling and a high floor as opposed to a high ceiling and a low floor). Also, it is critical to factor in the strength of the field at every tournament. We do this with our advanced multiplier system placing more emphasis on good performance in tournaments where the field is stronger than others. Obviously it is far more impressive to win the Players Championship with a star studded field than it is to win the Barracuda Championship (no offense Barracuda Championship), so we value the strength of the field for every tournament. We also track results for both the PGA Tour and European Tours and occasional other tour events if they are of significant importance. Since a lot of the players who are competing in the big tournaments play regularly on the European Tour, it is critical that you utilize that data as well.
