Why OoM when you can Rank? In the beginning of 2014, EDGA made a commitment to change the Order of Merit to a Ranking System with the objective of moving closer to the goal of reaching The Paralympics. Even so, the annual competition when competing in Order of Merit events is not forgotten and so the system that we’re developing allows for three different divisions and to find the leading players in multiple categories.
The new system effective from 2015 will allow players to receive points based on their performance in every counting round and to receive additional points for finishing in the top places depending on the strength of the field. The ranking will be a rolling 104 weeks cycle of results and we are working with golf’s leading authorities to ensure a fair system is implemented.
NB: Professional golfers will only be eligible to be included in the gross ranking.
