UTP Rankings

UTP Rankings have now been updated for recent eligible tournaments. 

Please note that from this season only one set of matchplay points will be added to a player's ranking in a particular age group, i.e. the highest points from the Winter and Spring Matchplays. Therefore points for Spring Matchplays will only appear if they are higher than the player's points for the Winter Matchplays for the same age group.

Information on which tournaments outside of Ulster are eligible for UTP ranking points can be found here
