We will complete Fall Ranking on the below listed dates & sites. The intent is to identify the top 10 VARSITY players for our early season matches. Then, as the season progresses, there will likely be ranking changes based on tournament results and/or players joining the program for the 2nd semester. IF YOU ARE ASSIGNED TO THE FALL RANKING DATES BUT DO NOT PLAY, THAT CAN EFFECT YOUR STATUS AS A TOP 10 PLAYER. PLAN FOR THESE DATES. (Transportation plans under consideration)
Seniors do not play JV matches but MAY be allowed to do so for the first 3 tournaments if a reasonable opportunity exists for them to break into the top 5 as a result of their performance in those 3 events. (Based on stroke averages)
RANKING SCHEDULE: (Number of holes based on daylight)
Wednesday Oct. 4th – Whitehawk G.C. – 12 to 15 holes
Friday Oct. 6th – Golf Club of Okla. – 12 to 15 holes
Wednesday Oct. 11th- The Links Golf – 9 holes
Friday Oct. 13th- MeadowBrook C.C. – 12 to 15 holes
TBA – A Final 18 hole ranking date at Indian Springs C.C. (A weekend or on a break)
RANKING IS BASED ON STROKE AVERAGES PER NUMBER OF HOLES PLAYED. As we cannot play 18 holes often, averages are calculated on ‘PER HOLE” averages. ONCE THE SEASON STARTS, ONLY 18 HOLE EVENTS ARE COUNTED UNDER MOST CIRCUMSTANCES.
JV Players will be assigned Ranking Matches as well on a different schedule. Those players will also be identified as to which JV group they will play in AND AGAIN, EVERYONE HAS A CHANCE TO BREAK INTO THE TOP 5 OR 10 PLAYERS BASED ON SCORES AND PERFORMANCE IN TOURNAMENTS.
To replace a player ranked above you, it is imperative that you have a chance to play that player in head to head matches and/or play in common tournaments on dates and under similar conditions.
KEEP IN MIND: Players determine rankings from their performance & averages. The coach DOES NOT, under most circumstances, randomly select players to play in varsity matches. Eligibility issues, disciplinary concerns or a player not making a good effort to improve and/or be ready to compete are situations the coach may replace a players in the line-up. Disqualifications or rules concerns can result in a player being removed from the line-up. Missing a bus departure time or violations of team rules or course etiquette are also reasons a player can be dropped from a line-up.
This is not intended to outline all team rules or policies, but rather give you an idea as to how you will make the tournament line-ups this spring. We will discuss the process more in team meetings very soon. Just know that we all want the best players representing our school in tournaments and everyone has an equal chance to be one of those top 5 players.
