Quiz: Year-End Top Ten Players Since 2010

It’s the end of another year of golf. Who has finished the year in the top ten? Can you name them, and can you go back to 2010 doing the same thing?

 

Finishing the calendar year in the top ten of the Official World Golf Rankings shows you’ve had a great year. Can you name the year-end top ten players going back to 2010 in our quiz?

Players from plenty of nations are represented across these top-ten lists, which change every year as form dips in and out for every golfer.

England, Australia, Northern Ireland, Spain and the United States are all among the countries that have had players in the top ten on the Official World Golf Rankings at the end of a calendar year in recent times.

Many a major champion makes this quiz, along with Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup stars, and both PGA Tour and DP World Tour winners.

140 names to get, with many of those being on there multiple times. We’ve given you the nationality of every player to help, but can you name them all in our quiz, powered by Sporcle?

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
