If you can give me total weeks for those players that would help me a lot.
That list isn't year end number one. It is the number of years that a player has reached number one at any point in the year.
Even if a player was only number one for five weeks, they still have to win enough tournament points to achieve that ranking. This ordinarily takes a player months to do. It actually is a very good metric across eras.
The point system has changed a few times over the decades. But across eras, to achieve number one, you always have to win the aggregate of the most important tournaments.
