WAGR® Mission Statement

The World Amateur Golf Ranking® (WAGR®), which comprises a women’s ranking (WWAGR®) and a men’s ranking (MWAGR®) for elite amateur players, is offered by The R&A and the United States Golf Association as a global service to golf.  Through incorporation and assessment worldwide of both amateur and professional events, WAGR® encourages the international development of the competitive game.

WAGR® endeavours to be the most comprehensive and accurate ranking in golf by effectively comparing players from around the world who may never directly compete against one another.  WAGR® is available to national federations and organizers of amateur and professional events and tours as a criterion for tournament field selection and for purposes of exemptions, national team selection, and orders of merit.
