The MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings will also help to determine the College Players of the Year for both men's and women's college golf, using a season-long computerized points system that includes all Rolex Collegiate Tour events, all conference championships, and the NCAA Championships (both regional and national). This June the men's and women's Division I award winners will be presented their awards by Jack Nicklaus prior to the start of the final round of The Memorial in Dublin, Ohio.
