Average World Ranking of 2012 European/US PGA Tour winners

Reading directly off the Tournament Winners page on  Golf Predictor, the average world ranking of the winners on the 2012 US PGA Tour was 69.81. The corresponding figure for the 2012 European Tour was almost 40% higher at 96.96. That is probably a fair enough reflection of the relative strengths of the fields on both tours.

Interestingly, both averages are significantly lower than the 2011 values, which were 113.23 in the US and 141.02 in Europe. That obviously implies that the higher ranked players (especially Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods!) performed better in the season just ended.
