Clippd publishes first edition of college golf rankings in latest chapter of saga

The new era of college golf rankings is officially underway.

Shortly after 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, the first Mark Broadie college golf rankings using primarily average points were unveiled. The North Carolina men and Wake Forest women lead the respective team rankings, meanwhile, Alabama sophomore Nick Dunlap and Arkansas freshman Maria Jose Marin are the top-ranked individuals.

The release is the latest edition of a saga this fall that has hampered college golf and angered hundreds in the niche community.

What started with Spikemark taking over as the official college golf scoring and rankings provider is now ending with Clippd taking over the managing and publishing of said scores and rankings while Broadie will handle doing the rankings themselves.

Come postseason time, the NCAA will use these rankings to select teams for regional play.

The Clippd rankings include all divisions of college golf.
