    The task of creating this list is mostly about filtering and sorting Event Placements and Event Scores. The source data is the IWWF World Rankings list and the results from any Pro Events during the same period of time.

    Process:

    1) Find all Pro Events during the IWWF October Ranking List Calendar Year. Men’s Events need 12 or more entrees and Women’s Events need 10 or more entrees to make the list. The US Masters is the only exception. The World Championships is the only amateur event used.

    2) Find all skiers who skied in 3 or more of the Pro events. The result is 28 skiers for the men and 17 for the women.

    3) For each event assign each skier a Placement Score based on the skiers placement. See notes for formula*.

    4) Find the 3 highest Placement Scores per skier and add them together for a Cumulative Placement Score. Sort the skiers by Cumulative Placement Score to create the ranking. This is the first half of the data set.

    5) Find the 3 highest buoy count scores per skier from all L/R tournaments. Only the highest round per skier per tournament is taken.

    6) Add the 3 scores together to create a Cumulative Buoy Count Score. Sort the skiers by Cumulative Buoy Count Score to create the ranking.

    7) Once the two lists are sorted by their respective scores the supporting data is set aside. What remains are two ranking lists. One list created by the sum of 3 tournament scores and another created by the sum of the 3 best placement scores.

    8) The same formula* used to create the Placement list is applied to both the tournament scores and placement scores ranking lists.

    9) The average of Tournament Scores and Placement Scores Rankings is the skier’s final ranking score.

    10) The skiers are sorted once again based on this score and given their final placement.

    Notes:
    *Ranking Score Formula
    100(((1-Place/Total # of Skiers)*100) = Ranking Percentile

    Events Used

    World Championships
    US Masters
    Moomba Masters
    Malibu Open
    US Open
    Australian Open - Men only
    MasterCraft Pro Shootout

    the data posted on the front page is actually richer. It shows how skiers did in terms of scores vs placement

    @horton, why did the women's Tournament Score Ranking use 28 places instead of 17? The differences between 1st and 2nd place are the same as the men's list.

    See #2 above:
    "2) Find all skiers who skied in 3 or more of the Pro events. The result is 28 skiers for the men and 17 for the women."

    Best of both worlds. Both current lists (IWSF and Elite) have serious drawbacks. This corrects for the most part as it takes into account both performances of scores and tournaments when everyone's present to compete. Messes up the backyard bandits. Great job BOS chaps

    @Kelvin I see the error you are talking about. @Horton sometimes it takes a 3rd set of eyes to catch an issue. This is why we published our process and numbers. Thanks for catching the error @Kelvin. I don't know how I missed it but looking at the same data set for a long time leads to looking over glaring errors.

    Here is the updated Womens List. I will submit a new one to @Horton
