Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Golf! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Biography articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work, and are also expected to play a role in the WP:1.0 program,

The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Golf}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Golf articles by quality and Category:Golf articles by importance.

FAQ[edit]

See also the general assessment FAQ.
1. What is the purpose of the article ratings? 
The rating system allows the project to monitor the quality of articles in our subject areas, and to prioritize work on these articles. It is also utilized by the Wikipedia 1.0 program to prepare for static releases of Wikipedia content. Please note, however, that these ratings are primarily intended for the internal use of the project, and do not necessarily imply any official standing within Wikipedia as a whole.
2. How do I add an article to the WikiProject? 
Just add {{WikiProject Golf}} to the talk page; there's no need to do anything else.
3. Someone put a {{WikiProject Golf}} template on an article, but it doesn't seem to be within the project's scope. What should I do? 
Because of the large number of articles we deal with, we occasionally make mistakes and add tags to articles that shouldn't have them. If you notice one, feel free to remove the tag, and optionally leave a note on the talk page of this department (or directly with the person who tagged the article).
4. Who can assess articles? 
Any member of the Golf WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article. Editors who are not participants in this project are also welcome to assess articles, but should defer to consensus within the project in case of procedural disputes.
5. How do I rate an article? 
Check the quality scale and select the level that best matches the state of the article; then, follow the instructions below to add the rating to the project banner on the article's talk page. Please note that some of the available levels have an associated formal review process that must be followed; this is documented in the assessment instructions.
6. Can I request that someone else rate an article? 
Of course; to do so, please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
7. Why didn't the reviewer leave any comments? 
Unfortunately, due to the volume of articles that need to be assessed, we are unable to leave detailed comments in most cases. If you have particular questions, you might ask the person who assessed the article; they will usually be happy to provide you with their reasoning.
8. What if I don't agree with a rating? 
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again. Please note that some of the available levels have an associated formal review process that must be followed; this is documented in the assessment instructions.
9. Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are somewhat subjective, but it's the best system we've been able to devise. If you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!
10. What if I have a question not listed here? 
If your question concerns the article assessment process specifically, please refer to the discussion page for this department; for any other issues, you can go to the main project discussion page.

Quality scale[edit]

Label Criteria Formal process Example
Featured article FA
{{FA-Class}}
Reserved for articles that meet the featured article criteria and have received featured article status after community review. Featured article candidates List of featured articles
A-Class article A
{{A-Class}}
Provides a well-written, reasonably clear and complete description of the topic, as described in How to write a great article. It should be of a length suitable for the subject, with a well-written introduction and an appropriate series of headings to break up the content. It should have sufficient external literature references, preferably from "hard" (peer-reviewed where appropriate) literature rather than websites. Should be well illustrated, with no copyright problems. At the stage where it could at least be considered for featured article status, corresponds to the "Wikipedia 1.0" standard. May be assigned by any reviewer, but, generally, articles submitted here will not be rated above 'B', unless they are already rated as 'GA' by Wikipedia:Good articles/Candidates. Tiger Woods (as of January 2008)
GA
{{GA-Class}}
Reserved for articles that meet the good article criteria and have received good article status. Good article nominations Jack Nicklaus (as of January 2008)
B
{{B-Class}}
The article meets the following five criteria:
  1. It is suitably referenced, and all major points are appropriately cited.
  2. It reasonably covers the topic, and does not contain major omissions or inaccuracies.
  3. It has a defined structure, including a lead section and one or more sections of content.
  4. It is free from major grammatical errors.
  5. It contains appropriate supporting materials, such as an infobox, images, or diagrams.
May be assigned by any reviewer Golf (as of January 2008)
C
{{C-Class}}
To be defined May be assigned by any reviewer
Start
{{Start-Class}}
The article has a meaningful amount of good content, but it is still weak in many areas, and may lack a key element; it has at least one serious element of gathered materials, including any one of the following:
  • A particularly useful picture or graphic
  • Multiple links that help explain or illustrate the topic
  • A subheading that fully treats an element of the topic
  • Multiple subheadings that indicate material that could be added to complete the article
May be assigned by any reviewer Augusta National Golf Club (as of January 2008)
Stub
{{Stub-Class}}
The article is either a very short article or a rough collection of information that will need much work to bring it to A-Class level. It is usually very short, but can be of any length if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible. May be assigned by any reviewer David Leadbetter (as of April 2007)

Specific individual tournament pages[edit]

This section outlines the notability requirement and assessment guidelines for WikiProject:Golf pages relating to specific individual (as opposed to team) tournaments:

Coverage[edit]

Such pages are named "NNNN Tournament Name" where NNNN in the year, e.g. 2014 Masters Tournament. This type of page is restricted to the Major Championships (Men and Women), WGC events and a few of the most important other tournaments. Currently these other tournaments are restricted to:

Because the FedEx Cup Playoffs and European Tour Final Series pages cover a number of tournaments they will have a somewhat different style to the others.

Current pages[edit]

To the end of 2016 pages exist for all Men's Major Championships (439), all (individual) WGC events (61) and all Women's Major Championships (275). For the other tournaments the situation is:

  • Players Championship: currently 19 (1982 and since 1999 only); 43 in all (so 24 missing - 1974-1981, 1983-1998)
  • BMW PGA Championship: currently 6 (since 2011 only); 62 in all (so 56 missing - to 2010)
  • World Match Play Championship: currently 20 (1964 to 1976 and since 2006); 49 in all (so 29 missing - 1977-2005)
  • FedEx Cup Playoffs: currently 10 (complete)
  • European Tour Final Series: currently 0; 4 in all (2013-2016)
  • CME Group Titleholders/CME Group Tour Championship: currently 6; 8 in all (2 missing - LPGA Tour Championship 2009-2010)
  • News of the World Matchplay: currently 11 (1903-1913)

Total - 72

Currently 847 in total (excluding 2017 tournaments)

In addition to the above there are a number of individual tournament pages for the Olympics and Asian Games (eg Wikipedia:WikiProject Golf/Templates#Multi-sport events) and similar multi-sport events. These have a different page naming convention and style to reflect the style of the Games rather than the normal WikiProject:Golf style.

Importance Assessment[edit]

Most pages are importance=Low. The exceptions are a number of Men's Major Championships which are importance=Mid. Which Men's Majors should be importance=Mid is currently being reviewed (August 2014).

Status Assessment[edit]

Currently most pages are either class=Stub or class=Start. There are a few (currently about 10) which are class=C or class=B.

Given the effort available to the project, a relatively low threshold is required to meet the class=Start status:

  • There must be at least 1 paragraph of introductory material describing the tournament
  • There must be a reasonably completed {{Infobox individual golf tournament}}
  • There must be a final leaderboard giving the top 10 and ties (or equivalent for match-play)
  • There must be a bare minimum of references and external links
  • There must be a navbox to the tournaments in other years e.g. {{Masters Tournaments}}

Similar criteria are used for the FedEx Cup Playoffs and European Tour Final Series.

Of the 847 pages, there are currently (by my count) 106 with class=Stub. All these are Women's Majors. See: Category:Stub-Class_Golf_articles

Further work needs to be done to define the criteria for pages to be class=C or higher, to be followed by a suitable assessment.

Specific team tournament pages[edit]

This section outlines the notability requirement and assessment guidelines for WikiProject:Golf pages relating to specific team tournaments:

Coverage[edit]

Such pages are named "NNNN Tournament Name" where NNNN in the year, e.g. 2014 Ryder Cup. Pages are restricted to the most important tournaments played by professional men and women together with the Walker Cup, Curtis Cup and NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships, played by leading amateurs.

Current pages[edit]

To the end of 2016 pages exist for: (i) Two-team contests: Ryder Cup (41), Presidents Cup (11), Seve Trophy (8), Royal Trophy (7), EurAsia Cup (2), Solheim Cup (14), Lexus Cup (4), Walker Cup (13), Curtis Cup (13), Arnold Palmer Cup (20) - 133 total (ii) Multi-team contests: World Cup (men's golf) (15), Dunhill Cup (16), International Crown (2), NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships (13), NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships (1) - 47 total

The following tournaments have missing pages:

  • Walker Cup: currently 13 (1922, 1923 and since 1995); 45 in all (so 32 missing)
  • Curtis Cup: currently 13 (1932 to 1938 and since 2000); 39 in all (so 26 missing)
  • World Cup (men's golf): currently 15 (since 1998); 58 in all (so 43 missing)
  • NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships: currently 13 (1939, 2003 and since 2006); 78 in all (since 1939 so 65 missing)
  • NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships: currently 1 (2015); 35 in all (since 1982 so 34 missing)

Currently 180 in total (excluding 2017/2018 tournaments)

In addition to the above there are a number of team tournament pages for the Olympics and Asian Games (eg Wikipedia:WikiProject Golf/Templates#Olympics_and_Asian_games) and similar multi-sport events. These have a different page naming convention and style to reflect the style of the Games rather than the normal WikiProject:Golf style.

Importance Assessment[edit]

Most pages are importance=Low. The exceptions are a Ryder Cup matches since European players were included in 1979 which are importance=Mid.

Status Assessment[edit]

Given the effort available to the project, a relatively low threshold is required to meet the class=Start status.

For two-team contests:

  • There must be at least 1 paragraph of introductory material describing the tournament
  • There must be a reasonably completed {{Infobox team golf tournament}}
  • There must be a complete list of match results
  • There must be a bare minimum of references and external links
  • There must be a navbox to the tournaments in other years e.g. {{Ryder Cup tournaments}}

For multi-team contests the requirements are similar to individual tournaments:

  • There must be at least 1 paragraph of introductory material describing the tournament
  • There must be a reasonably completed {{Infobox individual golf tournament}}
  • There must be a suitable detail of results
  • There must be a bare minimum of references and external links
  • There must be a navbox to the tournaments in other years e.g. {{Alfred Dunhill Cup}}

Currently all pages are class=Start except the 2014 Ryder Cup which is class=C.

Further work needs to be done to define the criteria for pages to be class=C or higher, to be followed by a suitable assessment.

Use of flagicons in two-team contest pages[edit]

These pages are all of a rather similar style and all (I think) have a section called "Teams" or something similar which lists the team players plus usually the captains and occasionally vice-captains/assistant captains. In this section flagicons are generally used to indicate the "sporting nationality" of the individuals, except in the case of the United States team where flagicons are not generally used since each individual would have the same flagicon.

For Ryder Cup, Seve Trophy, Solheim Cup and Walker Cup there is general use of flagicons to indicate the teams. In the Seve Trophy we use the Europe flag for Continental Europe. For Presidents Cup, Royal Trophy, EurAsia Cup, Lexus Cup flagicons are not used to represent the teams since no suitable flagicon is available for one of the teams (International or Asia).

  • Each of these pages should have a "Team" section. Where a team involves more than one country (including GB which is regarded as four countries) flagicons should be used to indicate the "sporting nationality" of the players. Where a team involves only one country (currently this is just United States) flagicons should not be used to indicate the "sporting nationality" of the players.
  • Except in the "Team" section flagicons should not be used for individuals.
  • Where suitable flagicons are available for both teams these should be used as a shorthand in tables to indicate the relevant team. These may also be used in headings together with the team name (eg: Europe Europe)
  • Where a suitable flagicon is not available for one of the teams, no flagicons should be used for either team.
