It’s all go for January after the R&A and USGA published their finalised Rules of Golf. So what’s coming in? Steve Carroll outlines the changes.
My Golf Ranking Rolls Out Worldwide
In the competitive world of golf there’s a new way of claiming undisputed bragging rights, a new ranking system for club golfers which is set to be launched worldwide.
My Golf Ranking was adopted by Fife Golfing Association and 32 of its affiliated clubs for the 2012 golf season and now its creator, former Scottish Golf Union president David Moir, is set to roll out the system to a wider audience through the system’s website, www.MyGolfRanking.net, which was launched last week.
“Golfers by definition are competitive animals,” said Moir, who devised the World Amateur Golf Rankings for both men and women when he worked for the R&A.
“Our vision is to have My Golf Ranking adopted around the world as the truly global golfing social network and we’re getting there.
“My Golf Ranking had 12,000 ranked golfers at the end of 2012. We hope to have 200,000 ranked by the end of 2013 and 1,000,000 by the end of 2014.”
“My Golf Ranking is free for golf clubs and their members to join and provides players at participating golf clubs with a ranking based on their performance in counting events nominated by their club,” he added.
