While the Porter Cup is included in all world amateur rankings, the dominant ranking that we rely on is the Scratch Players World Amateur Ranking or “SPWAR.” We also place distinguishable weight on prior finishes “of note” in the Porter Cup as well as finishes in collegiate events, top junior events, top mid-am events, top senior events, and USGA events.
