  • About The Rankings

    3rd Edition released 04/15/17

    The Purpose

    1. To bring awareness to the competitive sport of Speedgolf, by stimulating discussion among fans, media, and the global sporting community. 
    2. To extend the virtual reach of Speedgolf events worldwide, beyond the select few championships in which top players compete at the same venue.
    3. To add further credibility to the ongoing growth of Speedgolf, by showcasing the top players' world-class talent, just as other sports that also have world rankings.

    The Process

    A select group of Speedgolf insiders are invited to vote on a list of the top active elite Speedgolfers. These insiders include National Speedgolf Organization (NSGO) directors, players, ambassadors, informed media, and proven fans of the sport. To be considered active for ranking, a player must have competed in at least one officially-sanctioned Speedgolf event in 2015 or 2016.

     

    Voters are provided with the world's only comprehensive Speedgolf performance database, along with corresponding summary tables of scoring and results statistics. Their use is encouraged in the voter's ranking decisions.

     

    The final rankings represent the consensus vote compiled from all ballots submitted by the deadline.

    The Potential

    The Speedgolf Power Rankings are NOT an Official ranking, like the Official World Golf Ranking on the men’s professional golf tours (PGA Tour, European PGA Tour, Asian Tour, and several more). As Speedgolf activity increases worldwide, future rankings will continue to evolve to become more similar to the Official style of ranking.

     

    For now, a data-backed, voter-driven process as described above best captures the subtleties of ranking top players that may be missed in a purely mathematical formula.
