Order of Merit
ENGLAND DEAF GOLF ORDER OF MERIT SYSTEM 2016
After few years of using points system in order to qualify for both World Deaf Golf Championship and European Deaf Golf Championship, we have experienced issues in terms of how the points are explained and that the players were unhappy. We have decided to use a yearly Order of Merit on a trial basis for 2016 as an experiment based on Professional Golf World Ranking system. The points system we have chosen is very competitive as each position from 6th to 30th are only 1 point each. On the 'sheet 2', you will see a column for Bonus Appearance, where you each will receive 10 points for an event you have entered and played. This is proof for commitment/desire to qualify.
In the case of a tie for example two players are tied 4th which in case the points from the 4th and 5th positions are then added up and divided into 2 so therefore 27 points for 4th place is added with 24 points for fifth place which then is divided by 2 which equals 25.5 points for the two players in tied 4th position.
For EDG events the points are determined by the order of England players only in that particular event.
The minimum requirements to qualify for the England Deaf Golf Team in the following year international event is a minimum 2 events per year and the average score from 2 best scoring events will be counted towards your final qualifying total.
