Gabrelcik shot a 74 in the Jones Cup R3 and was awarded with +5 SG and through his 9 rounds in 2022 is rated at +2.72 which I think is better than any pro golfer on the site. something is way off here, right?
No, it’s fine.
You are misinterpreting a few things.
Amateur true sg is relative to the avg. player in D1 Championship (which is equal to -2.3 relative to avg. PGA Tour pro). See note on top of that page, or look at the benchmarks you can add on the right.
His 2022 is ‘rated’ at +2.72 but that’s just a simple average regardless of sample size. His actual rating is +1.55 (which is -0.8 relative to an average PGA Tour pro). He’s the #2 amateur but right now there aren’t many good ams. Look at our all-time rankings for some context.
- He shot 74 in R3 but that was one of the best rounds of the day at one of the best amateur events in the country. That +5 SG on the amateur scale is still worth +2.7 on the PGA Tour scale, so it was a great round.
ahh thank you very much! I had thought SG “translated” across all tours
