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.
It was a dream that was three years in the making, but the wait didn’t dampen the moment for Patrick Frodigh (Dedham C&PC).
Three years after he finished as runner up, Frodigh made a triumphant return to the finals and captured the 110th Massachusetts Amateur Championship title as his own on Friday afternoon at George Wright Golf Course.
Frodigh delivered a 4 & 3 victory over Herbie Aikens (Old Sandwich GC) in the scheduled 36-hole final and as a result became the 77th individual to win the Massachusetts Amateur Championship which dates back to 1903.
