With four events in the books of this new round of the 2019-2020 PGA Tour season, there have been several changes in the ranking of golf power. Some players have gotten stronger (literally) and leveled up, while others have struggled a bit in the return of golf after a long layoff amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The tricky part of updating golf rankings like these is determining how to rank golfers like Adam Scott, Tiger Woods and Tommy Fleetwood, whom we haven’t seen at all and probably won’t do for a few weeks. Some of them make the top 18 here, although none are close to the top of the leaderboard, which gives more weight to players who have played at least two events since returning to the midst of the pandemic.
Let’s jump into the charts this week, as evidenced by our new king, Bryson DeChambeau.
Power 18’s golf leaderboards provide insight into how golfers are currently performing, benefiting their game over a handful of more recent events. It’s a broader goal than what happened at the last tournament that was played, but narrower than the official world golf rankings, which take into account how more than 2,000 golfers perform in an entire season.
