A total of 32 amateur male golfers, 16 professional golfers, eight middle-aged golfers and eight female players competed in final rounds of the tournaments.
Japanese Vietnamese Hanako Kawasaki claimed victory in the women’s category. Nguyen Duy Hai won the middle-aged golfers’ event of the Vietnam MatchPlay Championship. Tran Le Duy Nhat won the VPG Tour MatchPlay Championship’s professional event.
WAGR, which comprises a women’s ranking (WWAGR) and a men’s ranking (MWAGR) for elite amateur players, is offered by The R&A and the United States Golf Association as a global service to golf.
Through incorporation and assessment worldwide of both amateur and professional events, WAGR encourages the international development of the competitive game.
WAGR endeavours 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.
