The purpose of the point evaluation system is to establish objective criteria by which Committees can judge the performance of golfers who participate in state or national tournaments beginning after March 31 and concluding prior to November 1.
Point standings and player rankings derived from the Point Evaluation System are used to determine player of the year awards and select team participants.
Point evaluation systems exist for men, juniors boys and junior girls.
In order to prevent unfair advantages of one player over others, simply by playing in more tournaments, each player will only be allocated points based on six tournament finishes out of a maximum of twelve.
At least two of the player's six point finishes must be from a Wyoming State Golf Association Championship or United States Golf Association Championship and/or Qualifier.
If a player participates in more than twelve tournaments in a single season, points will only be given for six finishes out of the first twelve tournaments in which the player participates.
The selection of the biennial three-man USGA State Team will be based upon the final USGA State Team Standings every even numbered year.

Those golfers ranked in the top three of the USGA State Team Standings will qualify for the team.
