Global Junior Golf Rankings

Global Junior Golf Rankings is the most comprehensive Junior Golf Ranking site in the world. Global Junior Golf Rankings rank one-day and multi-day tournaments by state and region in over 240 countries for players ages 5-19. Global Junior Golf Rankings ranks junior golfers by calculating each week's performance in the categories of Boys and Girls participating in junior golf tournaments worldwide. Minimum of 5 players per division.

Global Junior Golf Rankings will rank BOTH our multi-day and our one-day "1&Done" events. To learn more, visit juniorgolfranking.com

 

 

Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings

Our multi-day events are ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard (JGS) as long as a Division completes 36 holes and a minimum of 5 competitors finish the event from the same tees. Some tournaments may have both the 13-15 and 16-19 play from the same set of tees. In the event of inclement weather cancelling one of the rounds, the event will still be ranked.

Point System Details

For the 2020 Points Year, which runs from January 1, 2020 - December 6, 2020, your age on the first round of a tournament will determine the division you will play in for that event.  In the case of a birthday moving you into a new division during the course of the points year, you may wish to play up a division early on if you are vying for year end honors or Player Of The Year for a division. Please know that points earned in a division stay in that division.

Note: If you turn 20 years old in 2020, you can still play with Premier, but you'll play on our new Men's Amateur or Women's Amateur division.
