What a month it was.
The courses have been out for a while now, and it’s clear that the Golden Tee World Rankings are responding accordingly. The scoring in January was insane, and the top ten was jam-packed with fantastic scores.
A familiar face took home the top spot this month as Houston’s Mark Stenmark once again finished number one. His average score of -29.4 and 389,055 Great Shot Points earned him this honor. Mark has become a regular at the top of the leaderboard, but oh was it close this time.
Minnesota’s Lance Harris also finished the month with an average score of -29.4. His 259,813 GSPs were the difference although second place out of 11,300 players to get a GT World Ranking is one hell of an accomplishment.
Fellow Minnesotan Chris Thorbrogger took home third with an average 5-course score of -29. The rest of the top ten rounded out like the following: Chicago’s Graig Kinzler (-28.6), Minnesota golfers Andy Fox (-28.4) and Marc Muklewicz (-28.4), North Carolina’s David Duncan (-28.2), Ohio golfer Andy Haas (-28.2), Washington’s Evan Gossett (-28.2), and Florida’s Sean Gervais (-28.2). Very close indeed.
If you’re new to the Golden Tee World Rankings and looking to get involved, getting your rank is simple.
Play each 2012 course once (five games total) and you’ll get a leaderboard ranking. Your best game on each course will be averaged to give you an overall score. This means your ranking will improve throughout the month if you beat your monthly course best. At the end of the month we’ll reset the rankings and you’ll have a chance to beat your previous month’s score.
The green and red arrows on the GT World Rankings Leaderboard showcase how your positioning has changed relative to the previous month.
To find yourself on the online leaderboard, simply type in your Persona ID, aka the number on the front of your Golden Tee Players Card, and you’ll be taken to the page where you’re currently ranked. If you are playing with a credit card or are unaware of your Persona ID you can find it on home page after logging into your web account. You’ll also be able to see your current ranking in the upper right corner of the payment screen once you check in.
