Those Guys at Golfweek Are Such Jokesters

When I used to write college golf, one of the websites I'd check the most is Golfweek.

The reasoning behind this is because Golfweek has what they call the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index which rates golfers of all levels (amateur, college, pro) in some complicated system I never understood because numbers scare me like "Scream 2" or purple Skittles.

Anyway, it appears that the system I put all my trust in during college has been a huge scam this entire time.

The Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index ranked the PGA Tour on June 22 and here are the top-5 golfers, in order.


1. Tiger Woods
2. Aaron Oberholser
3. Kenny Perry
4. Phil Mickelson
5. Stewart Cink


Wait, whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? Tiger and then Aaron Fucking Oberholser?

I was a touch confused at this, so I decided to investigate Mr. Oberholser's record this year. I thought, "Hey, maybe the kid has a bunch of top-10s and I just haven't been paying that much attention." I've been wrong more than most in my life, right?

It appears our boy has only played in six tournaments this season and carded just two top-25s. Also, he's 163rd on the FedEx Cup Point system.

Since Tiger has only played in six tournaments this year, I'm going to assume playing in just six tournaments a year makes Golfweek see you as the best golfer ever.

I played six rounds last week and they sent me a free subscription!

Honestly, if anyone has any idea how this is legit, let me know. I'm pretty sure if I had a number system that had Aaron Oberholser as my number two golfer in the world, I'd just lie.
