2018 NAIA Men's Golf Coaches' Top 25 Poll — Final

OKC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the fourth-consecutive poll, Oklahoma City stands No. 1 in the final regular-season NAIA Men’s Golf Coaches’ Top 25 Poll, the national office announced Thursday. The Stars captured all 18 first-place votes and 498 total points.

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences.
  • Each conference is given one rater for every four schools in the league.- The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first-place vote, 24 for second-place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes.”
