More Points Up For Grabs – PGA of Canada2 min read


Posted on: 22nd Mar 2012

Members can now earn ranking points at the Canada Cup, as well as Zone Club Pro Championships and Zone Assistants’ Championships.

The PGA of Canada is pleased to announce the addition of 19 championships that will count towards the PGA of Canada Player Rankings presented by RBC.

Members playing in the Rogers Canada Cup presented by VIA Rail, as well as Zone Club Professional Championships and Zone Assistants’ Championships will now earn ranking points.

“When we launched the PGA of Canada Player Rankings presented by RBC back in 2011, the response was amazing from our members, sponsors and media,” says the PGA of Canada’s Managing Director of Championships and Events, Adam LeBrun. “So this year we’ve evolved the rankings a little to give the Zone events more relevancy and the Canada Cup always features impressive fields.”

The newly added Canada Cup will become a ‘Category B’ championship—between the PGA Championship of Canada sponsored by Mr. Lube and presented by TaylorMade/adidas Golf (‘Category A’) and the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Titleist & FootJoy and the Titleist & FootJoy PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada (‘Category C’)—with 390 points up for grabs.

The Zone Club Professional Championships and Zone Assistants’ Championship will become ‘Category G’ and ‘Category H’ championships with 90 and 67 points available depending on the Zone.

Points will remain the same for the championships that were present on the 2011 rankings.

In addition, members can now accumulate points from four championships per year, up from last year when members could only gain points from three championships. However, if members play in more than two championships within ‘Categories A, B, C and D,’ they will only receive points for the two events with the highest point totals.

“These new additions will further identify the talents of our members as professional players,” LeBrun says.

The PGA of Canada Player Rankings presented by RBC are based on a three-year rotation, meaning any points earned in 2009 will be lost at the conclusion of that same event in 2012.

The BraeBen Academy’s Brian McCann leads the PGA of Canada Player Rankings presented by RBC heading into the 2012. The player who sits atop the rankings at the conclusion of the PGA Championship of Canada sponsored by Mr. Lube and presented by TaylorMade/adidas Golf will earn an exemption into this year’s RBC Canadian Open at Hamilton Golf & Country Club.
