The World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR), which comprises a women’s ranking and a men’s ranking for elite amateur players, is offered by The R&A and the USGA as a global service to golf. WAGR is updated every Wednesday on www.wagr.com and is available to national federations and organizers of amateur and professional events and tours for purposes of offering exemptions, selecting national teams and assembling Orders of Merit. WAGR currently incorporates over 4,000 events with over 10,000 players and endeavors 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.
Nine years have passed since Matt Parziale (Thorny Lea GC) competed in the final match of the Massachusetts Amateur Championship. He lost in 2008. He won in 2017. After Parziale raised The Massachusetts Cup high on Friday afternoon following an impressive 4 and 3 victory over Matt Cowgill (Wayland CC) at Charles River Country Club, he took a moment to reflect on the journey that has led him to earn the most prestigious amateur title that any Bay State golfer could ever win.
