2022 ORDERS OF MERIT

 

With the competition of the Autumn Meeting at Cardross, the final positions in the main Order of Merits have been decided.


The winner of the 2022 Order of Merit was our Chairman  RONNIE CLARK (ERSKINE) with a final points total of 1,234. Ronnie had a very consistent season with wins in the Scottish Seniors Open, as well as our Spring Meeting at Moray and the Presidents Cup at Montrose. In second place was PAUL MOULTRIE (ROYAL TROON),  on 964, and JOHN MATHERS (HAGGS CASTLE) in 3rd place on 719.


The winner of the Handicap Order of Merit was GEORGE BARRIE (CALLANDER GOLF CLUB), with a points total of 433, narrowly pushing SCOTT MICHIE (KINROSS GOLF CLUB) into 2nd place on 415. 3rd place was taken by BRYAN INNES (MURCAR GOLF CLUB) on 325.


Congratulations to Ronnie and George on a successful season.




The Schedule of counting events for 2022 together with methodology of points allocation can be viewed by clicking on the undernoted link. If any event is shortened to 18 holes from scheduled 36 holes, then points allocated will be reduced by 50%.

 

The opportunity has also been taken to amend the points allocated across the events to recognise the varying levels of competition, i.e. The British Open will carry more points than the Scottish Open, which will carry more points than our Matchplay, which will carry more points than our regional events. Points will be awarded for Match Play Qualifying event in 2022 as per schedule below. Bonus points from British and Scottish Senior Opens will only be awarded to players who complete all rounds of the competition.

SUPER SENIORS OOM'S


From 2020, the Super Seniors OOM's has been revised and will be a stand-alone table, with different points allocations etc. from the main OOM. Both the Scratch and Net Super Seniors OOM's will run on a calendar year basis and will conclude after the last Super Seniors event of the year.

Similar rules to the main OOM regarding points allocation will apply in regard events reduced to 18 holes from 36, as well as bonus points in the British and Scottish seniors Opens.


The Super Seniors Scratch Order of Merit winner for 2023 is  JOHN FRASER (ROYAL BURGESS GOLFING SOCIETY). With 1 event to go at Ratho Park John's total points of 1835 cannot be overtaken. Well played throughout the season John.


The handicap OOM however goes down to the wire.
It is all still to play for with KEITH BRUCE (EDZELL) leading JOHN FRASER by one point going into Ratho Park and four other contenders still mathematically in with a chance of overtaking the top two.
