PGA Tour Latinoamérica[edit]

In this I am attempting to improve the consistency of the coverage of south america's top golf tour by ensuring that each tournament and each tournament winner has an individual page. As at 31/03/2014 when I started work on this projects the consistency of coverage of this tour was very haphazard with some tournaments and some players having an article and some none despite there often being no immediate reason for this.

What I have set out to ensure is that each tournament has a wikipedia article and each player that has achieved a win on the tour has an article.

I will not be creating articles for players who have not won a tournament unless there is a particularly notable reason to do this.

Pages Created[edit]

So far during this project the following pages have been created:

Golfers[edit]
Tournaments[edit]

These tournaments are or have previously be played on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica but did not have wikipedia pages, therefore I have created the pages and added the winners:

Other[edit]

Created separate pages for each year of the tour as per discussion with User:Nigej on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Golf

Templates[edit]

Pages Edited[edit]

I have made edits to the following pages to ensure they are formatted consistently with the coverage of other similar pages in this category:

Golfers[edit]
  • Ángel Cabrera - added category as a player on the tour
  • Ariel Cañete - Inserting tabular form for wins and added category as a play on the tour
  • Fabián Gómez - Inserting tabular form for wins and added category as a play on the tour
  • David Vanegas - Inserting tabular form for wins and added category as a play on the tour

Brabazon Trophy[edit]

The page on England's premier amateur stroke play competition was listed as a stub class article of mid importance, so I have updated this with additional information to bring the article to start class. Additionally I will ensure that each of the host courses for the Brabazon has a page befitting its status as a golfing venue. This will involve the creation of the following pages:

Asian Development Tour[edit]

Similar to the PGA Tour Latinoamerica over time I will create tournament and player pages for winners on the tour as these events carry owgr points.

Pages Created[edit]

So far during this project the following pages have been created:

Golfers[edit]
Tournaments[edit]

These tournaments are or have previously be played on the ADT but did not have wikipedia pages, therefore I have created the pages and added the winners:

PGA Tour of Australasia[edit]

Again as above this is a lower level of tour where not all the tournaments/winners have pages, therefore whenever I have some spare time I will try to improve the level of coverage

Pages Created[edit]

So far during this project the following pages have been created:

Pages edited or to edit[edit]

Tournaments[edit]

The following adjustments are to be made to European tour tournament pages to improve their content and bring them in line with other such pages. (Text highlighted in red is yet to be completed)

Players[edit]

The following adjustments are to be made to pages relating to current European Tour players or players who have previously been members of the European tour to improve their content and bring them in line with other such pages. (Text highlighted in red is yet to be completed)

  • Tyrrell Hatton - has had a decent season on the European tour in 2014 which has been well detailed. However his professional career prior to joining the European Tour had not been detailed and neither had his wins on mini-tours in 2011&12
  • Paul Casey - referencing details (Sep-14) I also believe the career summary here could be greatly improved with a little expansion and splitting into subsections, it doesn't really flow in its current format
  • Nicolas Colsaerts - I've updated the professional career section so that it now flows in chronologic order and included proper referencing of items that had not previously been referenced.
  • Graeme McDowell - Updated professional career for results in 2014 including Ryder Cup
  • Gary Stal - updated referencing on professional career to date which was pretty much non existent and added a wiki commons photo that was already in use on wikipedia nl to improve article.

Updates to other golf courses and club pages[edit]

These are edits that I feel will improve the content of existing wikipedia pages for golf courses and clubs which I have spotted by did not have the time at that point to update. (Items highlighted in red are yet to be completed)

Other Misc Golf Edits[edit]

I've also made some edits to the following golf related pages where I have noticed that information is incomplete, these have been made while browsing golf related articles and the edits have no connection to any of the projects above.

Acts of the Parliament of the United Kingdom[edit]

Pages created[edit]

I was recently on this wikipedia page and noticed that many acts of parliament do not have pages, if and when I find time I may start to create pages for these acts. Any pages I create will be listed below. These will be taken from the listing on List of Acts of Parliament in the United Kingdom

Infobox addition[edit]

I have also noticed that many of the acts are missing the standard template Template:Infobox UK legislation so I will run through the pages to add info boxes to the pages as required. So far I have added info boxes to the following pages:

Other[edit]

Goodreads - inclusion of table of readers choice awards from 2009 to 2015

Citation Improvement[edit]

One of the things that I find most irritating on wikipedia is the number of articles that are either uncited or have sections that are significantly unsighted or lacking references. When I come across these articles and have the time to locate appropriate citations I will attempt to improve them and remove the lack of citations banner. So far I have added significant citations to the following pages (as categorised by wikiproject)

Biography[edit]

Arts and entertainment[edit]

Sports and games[edit]

Golf[edit]

Songs[edit]
