The most improved player standings is a calculation to determine which player improved their handicap the most during the current season.   The USGA has set guidelines to determine which player has improved the most.  Below is an example of how this rating is determined:

Player A

Starting handicap index:  22.6

Ending handicap index:  17.4

Value A: 22.6 + 12 = 34.6

Value B:  17.4 + 12 = 29.4

A/B  34.6/29.4 = 1.177 (This is the improvement factor for player A)

Player B

Starting handicap index:  2.6

Ending handicap index:  0.8

Value A: 3.6 + 12 = 15.6

Value B:  0.8 + 12 = 12.8

A/B  15.6/12.8 = 1.219 (This is the improvement factor for player B)

This example shows that even though Player A had a greater decrease in handicap (5.2 strokes compared to 2.8 stokes for Player B), Player B still has a greater improvement factor.   This is because Player B’s handicap percentage decrease was higher than Player A.

I will be updating the Most Improved Player statistics starting May 1.  This is the date that most members have joined our club and gives two months of adjustment time after handicaps have been posted.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
