March 2021 Men’s Amateur Rankings

2nd April 2021

Throughout the year I analyse the two main amateur golf rankings, the SPWAR and the WAGR, to help us assess the performances of Great Britain and Ireland’s (GB&I) leading players as well as the status of events they compete in.

This information is maintained on the Rankings page of the GolfBible website and is updated quarterly.

The latest update covering the March 2021 Quarter period has now been added.

England’s Jack DYER has won my Player of the Quarter Award. Jack travelled to South Africa in early 2021 and produced a set of consistent results that made him an obvious selection.

He was also selected as 1st Reserve for the GB&I Walker Cup team earlier this week – the only player to break into the 12 man team from outside the original squad announced last December.

December 2018 Men’s Amateur Rankings

5th January 2019

Throughout the year I analyse the two main amateur golf rankings, the SPWAR and the WAGR, to help us assess the performances of Great Britain and Ireland’s leading players.

This information is maintained on the Rankings page of the GolfBible website and is updated quarterly.

This is a short note to subscribers to flag up that the latest update covering the December 2018 Quarter period has now been added.

I also select a Player of the Quarter.

For Quarter 4 2018 I have chosen England’s Jake BURNAGE. Jake finished 3rd in the South Beach international Amateur in Florida in early December.

There are few significant events between October and December so it normally takes something exceptional at the South Beach International Amateur, now one of amateur golf’s leading events, to justify the award being made. Jake has followed in the footsteps of Ben JONES (ENG) who finished 2nd in 2017 to pick up the award last year.
